Is it bad that I actually lol'd???

I think maybe I may be immature, but I'm sorry, that's funny.

I thought it was funny, too.
Good to know that someone at MS has a sense of humor.

Did anyone happen to notice the website listed in the popup at the end that her husband was looking at? (you have to pause it to catch it)

One of those love it or hate it adverts..... no fussed on it, not best taste mind.


Still love the IE8 Internet Ninja in the early adverts... LMAO to the point of crying at the subtlety! especially for those who remember the net from the 80s-90s or the one with Dean Cain is superb

Really hope they have the Ninja for the release of Win7
