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'm pretty sure ripping off Mission Impossible was already a dated cliche by the 80s.

I thought it was Charlie's Angels ...

Different theme songs.

Mission impossible went:

Da! Da! De, da! Da! Da! Dah, Da!

And Charlies Angels went:

Dahhh de dahhhh! Dah, de dah, dah de dahhhh!

Dah dah de dee dah dah dee dahhhh, dah de dah dahhhhh!

Well. You get the idea. They were different. ;-)
