The Ego on that Bill Gates

Filed under

Localization be damned, since Microsoft has decided to release a special edition of Windows XP only in Japan to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first Windows.

Finding details about what has changed versus previous XPs is difficult (probably because nothing changed), but we do know that it will feature a special “20th anniversary edition” desktop theme. Err, does that even count?

What’s most interesting about this edition is everything that’s not actually Windows XP: buyers will receive replica (e.g. not working) installation CDs of Windows 95, 98, Me, and 2000, Windows box origami, memorial stamps, memorial stickers, a memorial video from the man himself, and a special early “preview” version of Windows Vista, whatever that means.

Full Story.

malware galore

This is great. Now I can run all my essential spyware, adware, viruses, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, and every other kind of malware. I can even keep my system up to date and run anti-malware utilities regularly and still have my system compromised. And I can help the Beast too.
