Yesterday, Microsoft took Twitter and Instagram to annoy the inhabitants of social networks with a cryptic Windows 1.0 video. After reviewing your calendar to make sure it is still 2019, review the publications below:

As you can see, the 13-second clip seems to be a teaser for Windows 1.0 – and that does not make much sense. The inaugural version of Windows was released in November 1985. And almost 34 years later, we survived the horror of Windows ME and Windows Vista to finally get to Windows 10.
It seems unlikely that Microsoft will launch Windows 1.0 again in any capacity that is not a marketing scheme to announce the next version of Windows. After all, this is the company that named its Xbox console third as "Xbox One", so there is a precedent.
Another theory behind the strange video: it's a great thing to tweet or & # 39; gram & # 39; Without real Purpose, maybe something related to the next Windows 10 update. Why not? Microsoft is more concerned with hearts and minds than the end results these days: things that accumulate nostalgia usually leave people with a positive impression. Who can forget the first time they used Windows?
However, if you are willing to take a risk, there is an explanation that makes a lot of sense, but it could just be an illusion. Microsoft and Netflix could be in collusion to promote the third season of Stranger Things. Stay with us here.
The third season of Stranger Things will be released on July 4, and will take place in 1985. The time lines up pretty well in both cases, and Microsoft would be a perfect partner for the show. Here's why: in the first two seasons, Dungeons & Dragons was a great argument and the audience showed that they enjoyed it a lot. In fact, when TNW interviewed a teacher doing D & D classes of six figures online, he told us that the reason his classes were so busy was due, at least in part, to the "effect of Strange things".  In this sense, Microsoft is a pretty smart connection partner for Netflix because, most likely, anyone who played D & D in the early 1980s became obsessed with personal computers at the end of the decade. And, of course, even if Microsoft and Stranger Things are working together, it could be just a little link like when a main character eats Doritos on the screen.
But would not it be better if Upside Down-world's super powerless cast members could use a computer to take advantage of their nerdiness to help … well, we will not ruin anything for those who have not seen the first two seasons.
So far, both Microsoft and Netflix remain silent, neither of them responded to our requests for comment, but we hope the conjecture is true and that Win 1.0 makes its glorious debut. new in fiction. Either way, we can not wait to see the adventures of Eleven and the gang when season three of Stranger Things debuts on Netflix this Independence Day.
