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!

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 ;)
