View Full Version : Microsoft's Advertisements

02-17-2004, 04:15 AM
After first seeing Microsoft's slogan for its upcoming Windows XP operating system - "it just works" - I couldn't help but wonder: what were the slogans for all the previous releases? After thinking about it for a while, they became obvious...

Windows 1.0: Good joke, eh?

Windows 2.0: Still funny, isn't it?

Windows 286: Yeah, we're still kidding.

Windows 386: Going boldy where Desqview has been for years.

Windows 3.0: It's finally worth buying!

Windows 3.1: It's finally worth using!

Windows 95: Going boldy where the Mac has been for years.

Windows 98: More usable! Less stable!

Windows 98SE: More stable! Less usable!

Windows ME: Less usable AND less stable!

Windows NT 1.0: Give me more hardware! NOW!!!

Windows NT 2.0: Damn it, I said MORE HARDWARE!!! NOW!!!

Windows NT 3.0: Which part of "more hardware" do you not understand?

Windows NT 3.5: With enough hardware, I'd work. Honest!

Windows NT 4.0: Does less work than Windows 98 with twice the hardware and at one-half the speed.

Windows 2000: Works almost as well as Windows 98. Honest!

Windows XP: It just works.

I think you guys are missing the whole point of the joke.

I like 2000. It can stay on for weeks at a time. I haven&#39;t tried months, seasons or years yet though.

As much as I would like to badmouth Microsoft right now, I have to say that Windows XP Professional version (when legitimately purchased) works quite well. When I first plugged my computer into the internet, all I had to do was plug in the cable and surf. That easy. Unlike Win 98 or whatever where you have to install like 400 drivers and reboot about 50 times.

At least, an advertisement that hides nothing from the consumer.

I love what you said about Windows ME. It&#39;s so true =P

Awesome stuff there Will =P

Funny and actually true :lol: .

I must admit Windows XP Pro runs very well. I can&#39;t wait to see Longhorn.
