Apparently I attended a Windows 7 party 10 years ago



On this day in 2009 – 10 years ago – Microsoft released its new Windows 7 operating system to the public. Less than three years after its predecessor, Windows Vista, released, it added touchscreen support and brought new features such as window clicks, a new Superbar, and an updated PC file management system.

I don't remember much difference in user experience. In fact, I don't think I actually upgraded my family's Windows XP desktop. I also started using a Mac in 2008 when I went to college.

But one thing I remember is the Windows 7 party my friend Matt had at his house.

Around the time of Windows 7's release, Microsoft developed a brilliant marketing campaign: it would encourage households to organize parties for their new operating system. The company has distributed "party packages" containing a copy of the software, along with extras such as napkins, balloons and total bags for Windows 7, to users who want to participate and promote Windows 7 to their loved ones.

A video from the Microsoft Party Guide, ordered above (above), suggests that hosts "arrange a party with Windows 7 as guest of honor" and encourages non-honorary guests to use their host computer to play around with features like Snap, Web Slices, or Windows.com/help.kazi19659006 -s The coupon I attended was not as glamorous without effort, but was probably just as boring as these four adults described their parties. We were a group of teenagers hanging out at Matt's parents' house and neither of us was old enough to drink.

I don't really remember using Windows 7 at the party and I don't think I would care. Matt always kept his desk in the basement anyway, and apparently we were all upstairs in his dining room. I remember really liking the design of the total bag and used it many years later.

I have no other memories of the party that can speak of his boredom. I asked my friend Tom – who may or may not attend – if he remembers going to the party. "I do not think so. I remember him throwing it anyway … maybe? ”

Did this party even happen? As I read about the Mandela effect, Tom sends me a link to the original album of photos on Matt's Facebook page. Under the photo of the swag box, Matt's mother had commented, "It seems like a good time … but where are the people?"
