Windows 7 C edition. C is for Cookie.

Following the trend of Microsoft branded food-related products with the Windows toaster last month, now a Windows 7-branded cookie has appeared in China. One can only assume it will be packed with every pirated of copy of Windows 7 to satisfy your hunger during installation of the operating system.

In Europe, the cookie will only be sold unbaked. To promote competition, the European Commission advises purchasers to choose from a range of ovens in which they may bake their cookie.

    LOL. Worse. You have to select what type of flour you would like in it. After your selection, MS must bake it in its oven and and will be responsible for whether you like it or not.

  2. Will add it to my cookie collection which also includes Gingy (www.nerve.com/CS/blogs/modernmaterialist/2008/12/Gingerbread_man.jpg)

  3. I’d try the cookie.. perhaps its been baked right..more than I can say about the vis7a shit Explorer.. perhaps it also doesn’t taste as shit as Win7 looks and works in general, so they can keep back the shoddy Win7 OS with broken crap Explorer and the rest of junk noob crap.

    Just sell the cookie instead.

  4. And open source fanatics will try to get you to try their cookie recipe, which they claim you can control how many chocolate chips are in, but nobody actually does, except the people who like Gentoo cookies. There will also be a NetBSD cookie which you can make out of anything, and an OpenBSD cookie which will never make you sick. Of course, don’t forget the Apple cookie, which is branded as not a cookie, but something else entirely, even though it is made of the same things, and the only real difference is that it is not allowed to dip it in any milk except Apple’s milk, and costs three times as much.

  5. Please, Shi7e, if your going to be a ******* troll, save it for a differnt article. The toaster and cookies are for laugs, and your whining about how much you don’t like Vista or 7 and cursing about it (notice I asterisk my rather impolite adjective about you instead of saying it). The cookie is a promo thing/joke, your rants are ruining the page. Go scream into your pillow or save it for a relevant, such as feature-related, article. Not here. Don’t ruin the cookie for us.

  6. I think Shi7e just proves that it is impossible to make some people happy, they will just find something wrong and concentrate on that instead of concertating on the good things.

    When I saw this post it made be chuckle, I wonder in the Microsoft Store is going to have a food section?

  7. Lol. That’s great. Looks like a shortbread cookie to me.

    P.S. – can the admin block or do something with shi7e? his comments are usually off-topic and annoying. just another windows hater and troll.

  8. “I think Shi7e just proves that it is impossible to make some people happy, they will just find something wrong and concentrate on that instead of concertating on the good things.”

    That is because there is more ‘wrong’ with Vista and 7 aka vis7a, than ‘good things’ …and you would really have to concentrate hard to find anything all that good in vis7a, believe me I’ve tried.. its just shit after shit after broken shit, and I just can’t bring myself down to a level of noob satisfaction to work with such ‘shi7’.

    I suggest someone at Microsoft who isn’t stupid do something about the Explorer shell as they seem to have gotten complete idiots working on it who haven’t got a clue, stuck in there ways of noob workflow and shit design while avoiding any sense of responsibility to provide decent customization… yeah I’m probably talking about more than just the Explorer shell team now.

    Anyway enjoy the cookie

  9. Ok. I agree that Vista was crap. I know. I used it for a while and a total failure. That doesn’t mean that Windows 7 is. In fact this will be the first OS that I have switched to before it’s release. I ran the RC rock solid for a month and a half finding very little “wrong” with it. I upgraded to the RTM as soon as it was available on Technet and both myself and a friend (who also hated Vista) have agreed to pay for a full Ultimate license when we get the opportunity.

  10. I have found no problems with Win7, not that I have looked, but from where I stand I find it useful. All the programs I need and use work as they should. Explorer works for me, as far I can tell there is nothing wrong with it.

    Just a question Shi7e, are you a Mac Fanboy? Because you sound like one.

  11. No, Shi7e is Koogle, and nobody really takes him seriously because the only criticism he can come up with is “it is for nubs”.

  12. Are you a stalking nub then Fred?, and who is Koogle .. does he think the defaulty vis7a Explorer shell is.. shit! well he is definitely right. I’m sure his criticisms have been explained in much more detail.. perhaps you’re just a dumb ass noob who can’t understand just how much of vis7a is a joke. Perhaps you like it like that… perhaps you work on it.

    Anyway yeah Vista was crap.. just Win7 isn’t much of a departure from that same shit direction.

    “I ran the RC rock solid for a month and a half finding very little “wrong” with it.”

    first off its not a stability issue.. maybe a performance issue with the retarded audio handling.. but the big issue is the overall shoddy experience of using many key OS areas, just the general sloppy effort. Finding little wrong is just very short sighted… unfortunately MS can justify most the shit they put out by the very fact that most don’t care or realize how something could and should be done better or worst it has been done better, only to be broken, and instead of getting something better you get worse MS crap again. So there is much wrong in so many areas, even little things like visual tweaks that could be easily fixed, its a joke that some of those little things have slipped through since Vista’s testing.

    “Just a question Shi7e, are you a Mac Fanboy? Because you sound like one”

    No I’m not a Mac Fanboy.

    “I have found no problems with Win7, not that I have looked, but from where I stand I find it useful. All the programs I need and use work as they should. Explorer works for me, as far I can tell there is nothing wrong with it.”

    …heh, oh man.

  13. I think I know whatit is. You just hate change more than others. I have a few like you at work. They forcefully installed XP on laptops that came with Vista and found that audio handling comes down to the drivers. Of course everyone would do things differently in what they believe would be better or worse. What may look like crap to one person may look awesome to the next.

  14. “They forcefully installed XP on laptops that came with Vista and found that audio handling comes down to the drivers”

    no the driver issues were only part of the problem, the bigger problem was the fuckup job MS did on the new audio handling in the first place. There are no drivers that can get around that one and provide the same performance as before.

    And I don’t hate change if its providing or still allows for a setup better than my existing one! And you have to remember that it isn’t all just about the looks gfx/layout etc.. Although MS have done a pretty sucky job on that front again, and that is the easiest area to do a better job at.. but its also about the functionality and customization provided and allowed for in features… seeing as there are no decent working shell extension to improve upon defaulty explorer shell areas of noob crap.

  15. You could buy one and keep it in the family for ages then your grandsons grand kids can sell it, if anyone remembers Microsoft that is.

  16. Chinese website(xxdrivers.com) have taken part of the article for their own. Please consider to add the watermark for the upcoming articles.
