I say the only good versions of windows are XP and 7. 10 is not the best for me since of all the stuff that comes installed with it! Like skype for me is bloatware. I never use it and idk how MS will try to get it to be the new messaging system

"Linda" here reminds me a little of "Bailey" (played by Jan Smithers - who was 10x hotter), from "WKRP in Cincinnati".

I actually liked the ad, so I stopped at around 7 minutes in to read the comments, and then got warned there would be rapping. Rapping? So I resume play and right there it starts. Damn! The ad was fine till then.

She wasn't as good as Blondie's Debbie Harry . But she was cool with it .
T Rob (1 year ago)
Fun Fact: The sunglasses she is wearing are Gargoyles Classics. The same model worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original Terminator. Very collectable today.
V. Dargain (2 months ago)
You are probably right . Since there are no more Terminator movies coming out any time soon .
Eliezer Pennywhistler (1 year ago)
I must say - using a C-120 cassette for a two-minute message is wasteful of the corporation's money.

Original description from Google Video: "Microsoft sent this tape to retailers to explain the benefits of Windows 386. Boring until the 7 minute mark when the production is taken over by crack-smoking monkeys."
andymate2006 (2 years ago)
They should have a promo like this for Windows 10. All the same cast and crew.
V. Dargain (2 months ago)
Uh-huh . Good idea .
Steve Arrants (2 years ago)
This was't a commercial. This was an internal video shown at a company meeting. Still, pretty cheesy.

Mr. Toonster Windows 386 is kinda like Windows 2.1
Jason Stevens (3 years ago)
+Mr. Toonster it is very much a real product. http://gunkies.org/wiki/Windows_2.0#Windows.2F386 It ran on MS-DOS, like windows 1.0/2.0/3.0/3.1 etc..

Andrew Harnaman (3 years ago)
Assuming she was in her mid 30's or 40's when this was made, she would have now aged by almost 26 years so shes in her late 50's or mid 60's

I really liked this advert till 7 mins in. I was thinking how is this a bad advert? I mean compared to the hilarious and embarrassing DOS 5 advert this is actually quite pleasant. Then they started rapping.
Ian Drsaurri (4 years ago)

MatchstalkMan (4 years ago)
That 'rap' (and I use the word 'rap' quite incorrectly) she drones out sounds like Sheldon's "Bongos Rap" on TBBT.

Goytá F. Villela Jr. (5 years ago)
06:27: impressed with the screen refresh time. That PC must be a beast, at least a 25-MHz 386 with 4 MB RAM, probably 387 math co-processor, and I wouldn't be surprised if it even had a hard disk! Yes, maybe 10 or even 20 MB! That modem must be at least 2400 baud. And did you notice that the monitor was in color? Wow! And to top it all, it runs W-W-Windows three-eigh-ty-six! Jeez, you could buy a small car with that configuration's price. Top-notch! :-)

Windows/386 is an edition of the Windows 2 operating system. The "386" refers to the processor that Windows/386 was designed for--the Intel 80386.
