  1. Windows phone лучшая мобильная платформа, а Балмер лучший СЕО. Никогда не прощу СатьюНаделлу, он все испортил!

  2. Holy crap….that was great!!!!!!! Love the humor in its self deprecation; Amazing interns! Still…..I did wish the barista was Bill Gates. Microsoft makes the world go round. #NEVERAPPLE

  3. Global corporations were already more powerful than many states. They have now their devotees who praise them as if they were praising their god. Creepy…

  4. Impressive to see how musically talented these people are and it's not even the field they work in. Maybe next time you can include some of the non-tech people: janitors, security, maintenance, the people that go unnoticed but help keep the workplace running. 🙂

  5. I like how they mention the sucky Vista, but not Millennium. They really don't want to admit that piece of software do they

  6. Coming from a Working in IT and builder of gaming Rigs and WS Rigs for professionals – "kinda person", and (Thank You Microsoft Everyday) giving me the ability do this type of work for a living… i really enjoyed this musical. Good Jorb!

  7. Thanks to these smart guys. I hope they all get employed by Microsoft, and save Microsoft, as Microsoft is really fxxking up and dying.

  8. Exactly what Microsoft does, classic musicals, so the things they make use of outdated technology, and when other tech companies live in 2020, they're still coming to y2k.

    Type a comment with Surface Book, bored with the surface

  9. I was a few tables away from yours during the Hackathon, so I’ve been looking forward to this musical…you guys nailed it! You rock!

  10. This is the worst thing to come out of Microsoft since Windows Vista. Looks like they missed a beat with this musical too…

  11. I guess with all the money they are not paying the interns they can afford to pay for this production. Watching it was like watching a grade school play. It was painful and none of the cast are related to me. Are 90% of Microsoft employees female? Can't they use their creativity to come up with some new products? Excel and PowerPoint are 30 years old.

  12. How about time Microsoft sent out that Windows 10 update payload in March 2015 that reeked havoc on Windows 7 operating systems.

    GWX.exe, I bet people who have windows 7 still have it on their PC's. Did Microsoft really get rid of everything when they sent the "patch". I doubt it. Check your folders.

  13. I replied to val42k post but wanted this separate since it is on a different topic.
    Why is there a censored line in the credits? During the 'Thanks' section there is a blurred line that quickly disappears to black than comes back again just as it is scrolling off the screen. If someone was removed from the credits why wasn't the project file reedited?

  14. EVERY ONE OF THE 150 MICROSOFT EMPLOYEES WHERE INVOLVED WITH THIS SHOULD BE FIRED IMMEDIATELY!!

    Bill Gates is not an idea. He's a person. Stop trying to pretend like Bill Gates is the Batman and it's just a concept

  15. Spending time on things like this is why windows search STILL doesn't work half as well as the search function on any Apple product.

  16. I just want to know how your computers are better than your competitors and this answered none of my questions.
    Atleast talk about how Macs are overpriced pieces of shit and how for a 32 gig ram machine you can get for 600-1000$ cheaper with windows software than a Mac book air
    But that’s me doing my job for you
