verb throw through or out of the window; "The rebels stormed the palace and defenestrated the President"

I don't know exactly what I thought this word meant, but I thought it was something a lot worse than that.

postscript: related to my previous post script about iTunes not being a word, it appears that part of the improvements for the new version of OS X is the addition of Apple words to the dictionary. I'm not sure this is worth paying $129 for though.

I would have thought you'd have known the "usual" meaning from the computer definition.

There's a computer definition of defenestrate? OK, wikictionary has it: The act of removing Windows operating system from a computer in order to install an alternative one. Makes sense, but I'd not heard it used before.
