Microsoft … Works?

Edit: Unfortunately, the images originally included in this post are gone, because of hosting problems in late 2009. My apologies.

A kind-of-funny photo forwarded from a reader …

It’s a thrift shop mouse pad trying to suggest that Microsoft works (yes, I know about Microsoft Works). It’s funnier when you know that the machine next to it is running Linux. Too bad we couldn’t get a Windows Me machine with a BSOD in there, just to prove it wrong. :twisted:

    That mouse pad is funny, but I think it is a lame attempt at word play humor by Microsoft? Microsoft Works is a cheaped out office suite. Microsoft works is an oxymoron…

    Yeah, it’s definitely referring to their sub-par office suite. Note how “Works” is capitalized.
