    I haven't seen that one for over a decade!


    Thanks - it brought back memories.

    That was filmed in Building 2 (where the OS division was), Valorie and I were standing outside of camera range when the shots in the lobby were taken.

    The takeover target guy was Frank Gaudette, who was the heart and soul of Microsoft through the 80's until he passed in the early 1990s.

    The guy who "sold her windows" was Adrian King, who was in charge of windows marketing.  He later went on to work for Real Networks, he was "the voice of real" that played when you installed Real Player.
