The flash is about the bad and frustrating bit of Windows XP. I hope you enjoy and by the way, this is not how my computer runs, no I do not get mass viruses. Some of the screenshots are a it blurry but theres not a lo I can do about that. Watch it, I hope you enjoy it and please leave a comment if you want (Positive ones only please!).

good!

That was so true about the crappy windows xp. I'll give it 8/10 and it needs protecting, not blaming. ;-)

not really a parody of xp

its more a parody of the crappy adware rubbish you seem to have on your computer, my computer has never done any of that apart from the msn windows always popping up(msn isnt part of windows and its very easy to turn those popups off). Macs are never better than pcs :p

Okay, you can hate Microsoft, but you are one of the 3% of computer users who have a Mac. Have fun with that.

Amusing

Very amusing, Even though, I disagree, I'd sooner have my head fall off than buy a MAC.

Windows does have its issues, but machintosh isn't the answer to them, lol

The Proble With Windows

Yes windows has problem and this flash does show th funny side, but I think the ending would have been better with LINUX instead of MAC. But that is just one persons opinion. Not try to start a flame war.

Not Bad, I guess...

+COMMENTS+:

I thought this was going to be another click-able windows simulator, but no. This is kind of unique, and the sound wasn't bad, either. Some of the graphics weren't bad either. (The Nerd Machine, heh heh.)

+IMPROVING+:

It was kind of short... maybe you could make you go to the internet, or do some other programs, I dunno...

2/5

Nice one, but old subject

It was a nice flash, but NG is already full of XP movies, so try to make it a bit more original and funnier next time.

lol it's me

I sent the stuff anyway, enjoy. About the movie, it's generally the same as the previous one, only with another script and better sounds. Not that that's bad, of course. I liked how the icons ran away and how you ironically ended with the previous joke. It'll get stale if you do it again, so do something else in the next one and...do the mac joke again in the flash after that. Focus on the element of suprise...man, that sounds stupid.

Meh, kinda funny...

...But Macintosh sucks. PCs with Windows are far better.

Hardware - PCs are totally customizeable, whether you want to add/remove/switch hard drives, video cards, sound cards, processors, even the whole motherboard so you can change the case itself. Macintosh PCs, such as the iMac, pretty much only allow an upgrade of RAM. An iMac is like a monitor with all the parts of a PC put into it, and since it's extremely dangerous for a regular user to open up a monitor, you can't do much. Whatever's inside the Mac you're stuck with, no customization.

Software - Macintosh may have simple to use programs such as iTunes, which is alright I suppose, but PCs with Windows will always be better in this department. Windows is the most frequently used OS by far, so therefore:

- Most, if not all software developers will develop their software with Windows in mind.

- Users will always be creating cool third party programs.

- When it comes to PC games, which are becoming more popular, you never really have to ask whether a game will run on Windows or not, whereas with a Mac, people usually find themselves doing just that, and chances are it probably won't.

Viruses - I guarantee it's a fact that Macintosh computers have litte or no vulnerability to viruses. Why? Not enough people use them! I believe people have the wrong idea that Macintosh are invulnerable to viruses. This is totally wrong. The reason there are hardly any viruses for Macintosh computers is that people don't want to waste their time developing viruses for lesser used systems. If Macintosh became more popular than Windows (it won't, not anytime soon anyway), then IT would have more viruses.

And being a Windows XP user, when it comes to viruses, they're honestly not a problem if you're not braindead and computer illiterate. I know what I'm doing, I know how viruses work, I know my software, and I'm careful about the sites that I browse, so therefore I have little to no problems. On occasion I will get a virus that annoys me for a while, but I just Google it and I find a solution for it, and it disappears very soon.

In closing, I'd like to say that Macintosh computers are for computer illiterate "noobs" (for lack of a better word).

And when it comes to your animation, it made me chuckle.

but, as the gentleman above me says, Macintoshes DO indeed suck. Almost all teh stuff you put in this flash never even happens in real life.

Mediocre at best.

You missed tons of obvious examples and went for things that don't actually happen instead. The stuff about MSN messenger and the annoying pop-up windows in the bottom right is true to life, as is the bit about loading unncecessary crap. Otherwise, though, this parody doesn't hit on the things that often happen with XP that are truly annoying.

Here is an example of something that should have been in there: Windows updating itself and restarting your computer when you're not around, thereby screwing up whatever you had going on before you left the computer. That is something that would have been perfect for an XP parody, because it happens so often and is so annoying.

Another example: pop-up windows. Tons of pop-up windows from spyware. Windows won't give you an error message about that--it just happens, even when you're not using your browser.

Bottom line: you should use XP for a little while, put a little bit of thought into this, and try again.

Not do much a Windows XP parody...

as an idot who can't use it parody. By the way, even if you get a mac, god help you if you do, you can still get Windows on it. And maybe, you think this is funny, but I found it quit borring! Maybe you should change the title to MSN messenger parody, because what you showed in this, was the down ponts of MSN messenger.
