Windows Tomorrow, Microsoft will release all 6 versions of Windows Vista; some of us will rush out to buy themselves a copy, some of us will, like, not do that. OSNews will be bombarded with Vista related articles until old CRT monitors will have faint imprints of the word 'Vista' scattered across their tubes. So, to start the whole barrage of Vista articles off, here is a promotional video of Windows 386, released in the late 80s. This video is nothing short of brilliant. I suggest you make yourself a nice, warm tea (or coffee, if it's morning) and sit back to enjoy the wonders of multitasking, the 'just like OS/2' interface, the 80s music, and, lest I forget, the fashion in spectacles. Update: I am currently watching the 1982 classic The Thing, and there's a character in there named 'Windows'. Coincidence? I think not!

I have no interest in buying Vista this soon. It will probably be at least three months or more before I consider it. I will be watching the reviews though and the boards to see how many people have problems with it.

There are too many possible compatibility issues at this point. I know that most of the older games I play probably won't run or work.

By the way, thanks for posting this promo video link Thom. A great laugh indeed.

How old is your hardware? Are you sure that Vista has drivers for all of your hardware items? Vista needs at least 1GB RAM, and would be happier with 2GB.

Upgrade to Vista is probably not a good idea (in fact, it is probably going to be a disaster) unless your hardware is very capable and less than a year old.

My hardware is very new. My games are very old ;)

Core 2 Duo E6600, 2GB Ram, GeForce 7900 GS, etc.

However, I play games that are as much as 10 years old, as well as ones that are only a few months old. Almost all of them work fine on XP. I have no reason to upgrade to Vista. I know that many of them are likely to not work.

Had I watched this movie during the 80s, I would have chosen any OS but windows... thats not only a bad promo video, it is a bad video! bad filmmaking all over, even for the 80s... It focuses more on showing the blonde with spectacles than actually talking about the new thing, all I know from the video is that it looks like the competition and has some funny stuff called multitasking which no one cares to explain the benefits. Heck the girl was looking nice till she morphed into freak-singer-from-the-80s....

Considering how terrible Windows 386 was, that was probably a good move.

Even by the standards of the day it's a pretty embarrassing video. I can forgive the fashion disaster, but I'm pretty sure ripping off Mission Impossible was already a dated cliche by the 80s. When she starts rapping it's just hilarious, I bet that role doesn't have pride of place on the actress' CV.

It was also funny seeing them portray things like multitasking and copy and paste as radical new features. Users of other systems had that functionality years earlier, running on less powerful hardware than a very expensive 386.

The Thing is brilliant, it still holds very nicely today. And between it and Aliens, you pretty much have the template for all the knock-off creature-features made in the last 25 years (crap like Deep Rising, Pitch Black, Virus, etc). Of course, it's about the only sci-fi/horror film that I've never seen Joss Whedon rip-off, so maybe it was too disturbing for him too ;)

I used to like the 1984 ad. It is a neat commercial that grabs your attention, and it is probably good advertising in that respect. These days, it just strikes me as more of Apple's bad attitude.

Contrast that to Apple's Think Different advertisements.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jULUGHJCCj4

This is not Apple's bad attitude. Rather, it is something positive. To me it says: "It is okay to be different, and here are some good role models. And that is what we are about." For the company that helped to popularize the personal computer (think Apple II) and a company that brought the GUI to the market (the Macintosh, of course), I think that is an appropriate message.

*Sigh* I could make a sarcastic comment about people with broken irony detection units. But someone sat on my internet pump and now I have to go get a bucket before data spills all over the floor. Cheerio.

No one else notice (aroud the 5 minute mark) how she's using the mouse with her left hand and clicking the left button with her index finger? That would be a lawsuit waiting to happen nowadays...

/* Tomorrow, Microsoft will release all 6 versions of Windows Vista; some of us will rush out to buy themselves a copy, some of us will, like, not do that. */

I'm in the crowd of people that will not be buying vista.I simply don't agree with certain featues that were added,like, DRM. I would rather donate the $400 that ms is asking for the ultimate vista to a OSS project instead.

It would be nice to pick the Ballmers Monkeydance and put the "rap" song of this video as background, it would become perfect! ;)

I believe The Thing (fantastically scary movie by the way) also contains a shot of Kurt Russel pouring his scotch into a floppy disk drive. Some subtle commentary on the joys of computer use.

Okay, the music in that thing with the dog barks and everything was the most hilarious, crappily-put-together production I've ever heard! Amazing!!!!!!!
