I'm just having a little fun.... I don't get the Seinfeld commercial. They are selling Bill, not Windows. What's with that? Bill retired in July.

Also, why would they want to use the word "Delicious," when it is a brand of apple? Altogether, beyond bizarre.

There's an iconic moment, Bill's "ass wink." Up there with the Win95 launch (with Ferris wheel), Microsoft BOB (with Scuzz the rat) and the IE launch in Microsoft lore.
