View Thread: Windows 386 Promotional Video!

    I think I can answer where it came from since I'm the guy who uploaded it to Google video...

    Back in the late 80s I was fresh out of High School and working for Software Etc. when Microsoft sent that tape out. A buddy of mine kept it all these years and recorded it (to his Mac!) and asked me if I wanted a copy of it.

    "A copy of it!?! We have to put it on the Internet!"

    So he sent me the 100+MB file which was too big, I cut it down to size using a video editor for the PSP. Even then it was still too long for YouTube (10 minute max) so I put it on Google instead.

    I'd say I still have the better quality version if anyone wants it... but better quality is very much a relative term. :^)

    Glad to see it's bouncing around and causing mirth.
