We have previously seen a video of an individual upgrading from DOS 5.0 to Windows 1.0 and through Windows 7. (A new video has been made to include Windows 8 Pro in the install series.) Now we can watch some of the commercials through the Windows releases that might explain why an individual would be interested in upgrading.
To be honest, I’m surprised Windows took off. With Steve Balmer’s whiny yelling infomercial at the very beginning, I would have marked it DOA.
“$500? $1000? Even more? Just $99!” (Except in Nebraska.)
