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!

Iím using Windows, Windows, Windows 386,
so all my applications are running at once.
My report right now is scattered all over my disk,
whoa whoa Windows, youíll put these parts together real quick

Iíve got pieces in one spreadsheet, Iíve got pieces in another,
Iíve got pieces that have never been close to one another.
Some are in the database, where things are pretty stuffy.
some are in the word processor, thatís where it gets sloppy.

whoa whoa windows whoa whoa windows Windows 386!
we'll pull these parts together and do it microquick.
I'll cut and paste cut and paste until it's in Pagemaker
then I'll slick it up to be T-Bone's heartbreaker!
