Windows 7: Send off Windows XP by blowing it up with Microsoft's help

Send off Windows XP by blowing it up with Microsoft's help

From the good-sport department, Microsoft takes a shot at itself with a Web game that encourages players to send Windows XP back to the early naughts, permanently.

As Windows XP begins its long demise, you can't accuse Microsoft of lacking in gallows humor. As support for the endurance champion of modern OSes ended this week, the Internet Explorer team released a hilarious self-deprecating Web game called "Escape from XP" to have a little fun while also encouraging folks to upgrade to newer versions of Windows and Internet Explorer.
The game play itself isn't quite up to par with what's come out of the Xbox team, like, ever, but who cares? This is a glorious 8-bit self-satire that features an evil Clippy lording over a battlefield of ancient PCs, Internet Explorer 6 logos, and other digital relics from an age before the MS Office ribbon when Justin Timberlake was still just a member of 'N Sync and Friendster was king.
