Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer in Austin Powers Parody [Video]

Who remembers this classic from the year 2009 when Steve Ballmer posed as Dr Evil and Bill Gates as Austin Powers? It came across my line of sight recently, which made me wonder if this little stunt is where the idea of Windows 8 came from. Check it out:

Now that Ballmer is preparing to leave the seat, we probably will never see such things from Microsoft again. Such a shame really.

    IMHO, Win 8 is less “effective” than Win 7. I have had to work hard to make Win 8 nearly as effective as Win 7.
    Agree, cute cat!

    “messy but effective”…sounds like Windows 8.1.
    Hey! Cute cat!

    Yup!  Win 8 meets three and one half out of the four buttons.  Only fails on “effective”.
