Why is the offer not valid in Nebraska?

Not sure which release that was?? 3.1?? 3.0??

Definitely not Win1. I have a pre-gui Windows on a 286, and it's all Control-Alt-Enter.

I know, you just want to spread the word that Vista is a loser.

@Tim- I read this was done as a joke and only ever intended for consumption within microsoft, but still, I think it's interesting that they picked Nebraska. Maybe little baby ballmer developed some animosity towards the state because of particularly weak sales there :lol:

@Prof_Pretorius- Thing I read also said this was done back in '85 for the release of 1.0. I didn't get my introduction to Windows until 3.1 so I can't say with certainty. Looks a bit like the 1.0 screenshots I've seen though. The thing in the video definitely isn't 3.1, the machine is too ancient and I remember 3.1 being light-years ahead. Still traumatized by that "OS".

Maybe we should tell the "noobs" that it's actually Vista :lol:

lol poor ol' Gloria Estefan being associated with that madness. Nice to see where our money has been going all these years (steve's 5 tonne's of crystal meth a day habit by the looks of it).

LOL at 0:22 in that clip, seems like he pulls a muscle or something. "Aaaarrrggghhh!" :lol:

Is it just my imagination or there is an uncanny resemblance between ballmer and these 2 guys? I bet no-one has ever seen ballmer and Uncle Fester in the same place, at the same timer either....very suspicious :lol:
