Blinkety-blink. Blinkety-blink.

When a mommy and a daddy love each other very much, the daddy wants to give the mommy a special gift – a Windows Home Server. Oh, yes. Microsoft marketing, in an attempt to distract from Vista’s vicissitudes, is distributing “Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House? Helping Your Child Understand the Stay-At-Home Server.” Read this book. Then try to imagine what would happen if an actual child read this book. Then try to imagine what controlled substances brought this particular marketing campaign from the Moria-like depths in which it spawned to the light of day.

Then make sure that all YOUR special gifts run Linux.

    Ok, I’ll admit it: I kind of love Microsoft for this. Crack-addled marketing schemes = love.

    Wait — your uncle who smells like bark? And the dog peed on the computer? This gets more amazing by the minute!

    And why does Daddy have to do the buying and installing? What are you trying to say, Microsoft? Huh??

    I couldn’t help smile all the way through reading this incredulous book. It’s an incredibly creative advertisement, but it goes without saying, it’s not a children’s book. No matter what your feelings about the book, it gets you thinking about home servers. I’ve got to get a copy of this book…!
