I don’t know whether the way to catalyze more Windows 7 love is through the users’ stomachs, but it certainly appears that even the world’s fastest selling operating system can use a bit of extra publicity, especially in markets where its high level of popularity doesn’t necessarily translate into sales. A new Taiwanese Windows 7 restaurant opened its doors recently, and the latest iteration of the Windows client is not only the main course, but also the desert and even the “muse” for the decorum. This is, of course, not the first time that Microsoft has tied Windows 7 to food.
Some of you might still remember the Windows 7 Whooper
, which went on sale in Japan in 2009, after the operating system was launched worldwide. A promotion from Microsoft and Burger King, the Windows 7 Whooper was a meat monstrosity containing no less than seven stacked beef patties. Burger King ended up selling in excess of 10,000 Windows 7 burgers in just the first seven days after the platform’s launch, and prolonging the promotion because of its popularity.
