Drink three times

  • An animated version of Anthony Edwards or Bill Gates appears.
  • Anthony Edwards remarks offhandedly "You ever notice how much Windows looks like the Macintosh operating system?" Drain another if Bill answers, "Nah, we swiped it from Xerox."

Puke When:
  • Bill admits he plans to change it all in a few years to copy Novell. He just wanted to ease us into it.
  • It's admitted that they still base everything on out-of-date I/O processing.
