Have A Party, Have A Windows 7 Party
Unless you’ve be hiding under an Apple Mac for the past year you’ll probably be aware that Windows 7 will be launching in a couple of weeks. It’s been hailed as the next messiah and what XP was to Millennium and, quite frankly, that’s good enough praise for me.
To coincide with the Windows 7 launch, Microsoft are encourage users to have Windows 7 “parties”. Yep, that’s right, par-tays, dawg. Now I don’t know about you but I’m a mega-geek and I even I draw the line at inviting all of my friends over to drink low-alcohol beer, eat nachos and talk about last night’s “game” (American football reference y’all) as we crowd around my PC and geek out all of the cool new features Windows 7 has to offer.
“Oooh, check out the new version of Windows Explorer.”
“You’re so awesome for inviting us over for a Windows 7 party, Gordon.”
“Seeing the decreased boot time of Windows 7 really makes me want to have your babies, Gordon.”
Still don’t believe me that Microsoft are actively pushing this is a legitimate thing? Watch the vid below.
Ironically enough this video is almost so bad, it’s good. If it were a spoof, I’d be chuckling my arse off but the fact that it’s real makes me want to cry inside. Microsoft are even sending out launch party kits to help you plan your event. Oh boy.
Now I hate those combat trouser wearing, iPod carrying, grinning idiot Botherhood of the Mac users as much as you but least Apple don’t encourage us to throw parties to celebrate the launch of Snow Leopard. This has to take the biscuit with Microsoft. If you’re going to have the balls to use Windows at least keep it quiet and hide your shame.
