Default Incredibly strange Windows advertisement.

It's hilariously awful, so watch at your own risk. But it's from 1988. what can you expect?

Skip ahead to 2:00 to get to the interesting part.



Also, NO COMMENTS ABOUT MERGING THEM INTO ANOTHER THREAD. I couldn't find an appropiate thread and it was ignored when I put it in Minor Irritants.

OMG, how hilarious!!!

This really takes me back as well. Coming up in an MS-DOS environment, I recall how amazing it was to be able to multi-task between windows. And too, I remember the days when 640k of memory felt quick and responsive LOL

Even admitting I worked exclusively in Lotus 123 for a large part of a decade, dates me.

Too funny, thanks for posting this Aimee.
