Making spoof videos would definitely top the list of talents by Microsoft employees. Here’s a dated but rare video staring the infamous (and now disbanded) MSX design team who worked on the Windows Codename Longhorn project.
This time they poke fun at the user experience decision making process for Longhorn, what would become Windows Vista. Starring from left to right, Tjeerd Hoek – design director for Windows, Greg Melander – visual design lead for Longhorn; Cees van Dok – lead product designer; Mark Ligameri – design manager & creative director for Longhorn; and Chris Guzak – senior architect for Windows.
