Geek Out my Friends!

For those of you who say there’s nothing but crap on YouTube, I have proof that you are 100% incorrect. Below is the link to the world’s coolest YouTube video. You should really see this. If you do not have a Flash plugin, check out the Windows 386 post for a link on how to convert flash to AVI.

Those machines look like they took forever to put together.

You’ll Be Freeeee Hackers

So I’m having fun with this horrifying multimedia extravaganza. If any of you know who Richard Stallman is–who doesn’t?–you know that he will not be the next American Idol (and I don’t think it would particularly bother him).

This is a Microsoft commercial, obviously from the ’80s, about Windows 386. What I find scary is that I think much of that code still lives and breathes in modern Windows. Scary? I think so. Either way, take a look and watch to see what it evidently took in the ’80s to convince someone to forego their freedom and their money in order to obtain software.

Sorry folks, but this does require flash 7 or greater, or some interesting tricks to convert it to an avi or other viewable codec. Go here to learn of such tricks.

Watch it fast before Microsoft sues for IP infringement.

See? It makes you want to dye only portions of your hair and start listening to Flock of Seagulls. Eh? Eh? Aren’t you glad you use Free Software?
