Windows 95/98: "32-bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16-patch to an 8-bit operating system originally coded for a 4-bit microprocessor, written by a 2-bit company that can't stand 1 bit of competition."

Whoever is the genius in the advertisement deptartment at Microsoft, they have done it this time. Anybody seen the IE ads on TV started in 1997? The one with a very effective choral music playing in the background? Well, the background music is the Confutatis Maledictis from Mozart's Requiem (Mass for the dead). And the words of the final blast of music which accompanies "Where do you want to go today?" are saying "confutatis maledictis, flammis acribus addictis..." which means "the damned and accused are convicted to flames of hell".
Is this the right message for an ad?
