Top Ten Last-Second Additions to Windows 98
 
We were a bit concerned that Microsoft's legal quandary earlier this week would delay the release of the final Win 98 code to computer manufacturers (and our review team). Turns out that Microsoft released it anyway, but only after adding these 11th-hour tweaks:
 
10. Included subliminal "Impeach Janet Reno" messages in start-up screen.
 
9. New Internet Explorer feature: Whenever you visit a Web site ending in ".gov," a message first appears reminding you that Microsoft is not a monopoly.
 
8. Source code no longer ones and zeros-- try 666s and zeros. Windows start-up theme, played backward, says, "Here's to my sweet Satan."
 
7. Comes with check for $50 that, if cashed, puts your name on an Internet petition telling the DOJ to buzz off *and* changes your long distance carrier to AT&T.
 
6. New desktop icon -- click once, and $1 will go directly from your checking account into the Microsoft Legal Defense Fund.
 
5. Added new template to preinstalled version of Word: "Letter to the editor expressing delight with Microsoft products."
 
4. Freebie computer-controlled Barney doll has been reprogrammed to say, "Big government is sca-a-ary. Janet tried to hurt me."
 
3. TV function scrambles C-Span during antitrust hearings.
 
2. Desktop display with countdown tracking number of copies of Windows 98 that must yet be bought to prevent worldwide economic collapse!
 
1. Last-minute name change: was "Windows 98," now "Windows: Assimilate."
 
FWIW
