I must stress much needed credit to EON on this flash for the source code and minor graphics for the 'Newgrounds' portion of this flash.

NOTE: You have to DOUBLE-CLICK the icons.
NOTE 2: You must click on the text, not the icons, for the links to work.

This is ANOTHER windows parody/simulator on Newgrounds. But, before you go to vote zero, take the time to look at the flash. I have tried to design it to look and act like the real Windows Vista.

EDIT: Daily 3rd? Didn't think this'll do as well as that... but thank you, anyway! :-D
EDIT 2: 2,000 votes and 80,000 views! :-D

Spelling error

Very good! i love this, except the internet on abc, it took me to google, when i thought it would be fake.. also, when your on Windows abc, you click on paint, and it says ur a guset user :) Very good, so realistic..

I can't change the start menu, otherwise it just won't work at all (including the time and icons at bottom-right). ;-)

Not bad

Well this is great but with all these features it isn't as funny like all the other parodies well I'd still say you did put alot of hard work in to this so keep up the hard work now! :) -Ultra_ST

Matty2-and-a-half responds:

I know. I designed this so it'll actually work. ;-)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


I think you put more detail into this one, whereas in Windows abc it was more about the humour.

I think on the humour side I would probably rate ABC better, but I think Mista is more of a simulation style game, and as a Windows Sim, I rate really high as the animation was amazing.

Beautiful visual effects and many interesting features, overall a good submission :)

Matty2-and-a-half responds:

Next one I make will try to focus on both. But it'll be anothe 3 years before I can start that... :-S


Rated 2 / 5 stars

it was ok

i played it but it didnt have the same humor as the others, it was too good, everything worked and there was almost nothing funny about it. But it takes alot of skill to get the quality that you had. it was like an emulator.

Matty2-and-a-half responds:

It is supposed to be. :-)

It looked really good

But I don't get the point of the Parody. It just looked like Windows Vista. Alot of things, like Paint, didn't seem to have anything Funny about it, and just worked.

Some Commentary wasn't all that funny, just closer to the mean side.

Example: So the DVD has a Blue Ray in it so they're gonna destory my drive then a-bomb my house? Meh, why not a joke from Microsoft about how Sony is the true evil or something?

So yeah it looked really really good, but the humor just didn't seem too relevant.

It got alot better when I booted into Windows ABC and opened word, clicking on the home, insert, etc were funny. In Mista, none of them did anything except home.

Also when I logged onto Matty and clicked Paint it booted me to Mista, but nothing was working.

Now THIS is a detailed review (why can't more reviews be like this?)

Now, I liked to make this work properly, and when I can't do something in FLash (like make it read a disk, ect...) I just a a comment. Back when I did Windows ABC, I saw the funny side and made humourous comments in it.

Someone's mentioned that ABC paint error before and I thought i'd fix'd it... maybe it's not been updated on here yet...?
