This Microsoft Windows 7 launch video is, if possible, worse than that musical one

Comedy Is an Uninvited Guest at Microsoft's 'House Party'

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft has produced its share of quirky marketing
| messages, but a YouTube clip produced to promote a series
| of Windows 7 launch parties is a special sort of odd. Oh,
| so very special.
|
| [...]
|
| By two minutes into the video, I could only hold my head in
| my hands, cringing and saying, "No, no, no, this can't
| possibly be real!" before giggling helplessly at how high
| these six minutes and 14 seconds of video ranked on the
| Unintentional Comedy Scale.

HOW TO: Party Like Microsoft [Awkward Video]

,----[ Quote ]
| On first view we were tempted to think it might be parody,
| but the classic commercial set house was just too perfect.

Can Jerry Seinfeld save Microsoft?

,----[ Quote ]
| So the question becomes not whether the campaign will stink, but how bad.
|
| I have come up with three possibilities. The kindest one would be "just
| stinks." After that comes "stinks to high heaven," followed by the
| frightful "What are they thinking!?"
|
| [...]
|
| So we'll all await these new messages from Microsoft knowing that they will
| probably not stink to high heaven, but merely just stink.

Windows XP SP3 Shows Noticeable Speed Increase: Report

,----[ Quote ]
| We Say: Is Windows Vista turning out to be more like Windows Me, one of
| Microsoft greatest OS failures, than anything else? The only real
| attraction for me has been DirectX 10. Aside from that, everything else
| appears incremental in appearance. Nice to have, but nothing I must have.

Ten Penny-Pinching Ideas for 2008

,----[ Quote ]
| Avoid Vista.
|
| I think Microsoft Windows Vista is a great operating system. But then again I
| still think O.J. is innocent and Donald Trump's hair is real. So if you don't
| agree with my view, stick with Windows XP for as long as you possibly can. We
| will all be forced to drink the Vista Kool-Aid after Jan. 1, 2008 when no one
| is allowed to sell Windows XP anymore. So buy up Windows XP computers now.
