If you are a Microsoft fan, today’s your lucky day.

According to Quartz, the tech giant’s update to Windows 10 will offer the middle-finger emoji option, in an array of beautiful Almay-like shades. “That makes Microsoft the first big tech company to allow the profane emoji onto its platform,” Quartz writes.

Known as “reversed hand with middle finger extended,” the bird will be part of the updates coming in mid-2015, according to Emojipedia. The site reports that Microsoft is expected to release Windows 10 in July.

Android and iOS have yet to acknowledge the middle finger. So you will have to keep using the beta version for now.
