XP hill found

You an see it on Google maps too

For the
last seven years millions of punters have seen a certain green hill when they have turned on their Windows XP machines. 

However the location of the green hill, which Microsoft nicked from a photo bank, and called Bliss has been mystery. Now a bloke from Sonoma County in California claims to have found the hill.  In fact much to his surprise he discovered that he grew up near it and drove past it often without knowing its claim to fame.

He is not the only person to drive past it either.  Google Maps has driven by and taken its own snap. Needless to say the famous hill looks completely different in real life, but it is definitely the right shape. (Never mind the wines, apple trees would look much nicer there. sub.ed.)
