Microsoft, probably known for always being at the forefront of fashion, is releasing another small series of ugly holiday sweaters to commemorate some of its products of yesteryear. Obviously, these will be my go-to tops for Zoom meetings this winter. My go-to bottoms? Haha – bottoms. What is this, a physical workplace?
Available in MS Paint, Windows 95, and Windows XP varieties, the sweaters are pre-orderable in sizes small – XXXL for $70, with a portion of each sale being donated to Girls Who Code, a non-profit dedicated to closing the gender gap in tech. Unfortunately, the sweaters won’t ship until January 29th, 2021 – just in time to lose your family’s annual ugly holiday sweater contest by over a full month.
Obviously, if Microsoft wanted to make the ugliest holiday sweater they should have made a blue screen of death version. I get light-headed just thinking about a particular blue screen of death I experienced back in 2004. All that work I just did… gone. You know that may have actually been the first time I ever threw a computer tower down the stairs.
