M.S. Microsoft goes on holiday today by offering a paint-themed “ugly” sweater For sale in its online store, With a portion of the proceeds from each sale donated to the Women Who Index. The company has offered Windows XP and 95 sweaters to influencers and super fans in the past, but this is the first time the company has sold a sweater directly to customers.
This morning Microsoft briefly received three types of “soft clothes”: the MS Paint sweater mentioned earlier and the rest of the Windows 95 and XP sweaters. When we first tested the store, those XP and 95 sweaters were already running low, and so far, only the MS paint sweater is available this year. You can see all three types in the gallery below to see what you missed.
Microsoft has had fun with these ads in the past, packaging the old Windows XP sweater in a Windows XP-style box.
M.S. It’s hard to know how the sweater will be packaged this year, as the paint is installed on Windows rather than being sold separately, but here we believe Microsoft’s foolish trend continues. It is clear that the company has some sweater fans in its ranks; Is this the hidden bit of Bill Gates’ influence?
Whatever the source, M.S. For one more piece of paint sweater. At $ 69.99, $ 20 per sale goes directly to Women’s Who Code from today, December 1 to 23. Microsoft says it plans to donate at least $ 50,000 to the nonprofit from this ad. If you are unfamiliar, Women and Code is a non-profit dedicated to getting more women in the field of computer science by providing classes and educational resources.
The relative ugliness of these sweaters is debatable (personally I think the MS paint sweater is so cute), but if you are nostalgic for the old windows, now you can get yourself out to a digital ugly sweater party. Putting the theme, Microsoft provides Windows and MS Paint Backgrounds For Skype and groups, if you want to look like you’re stuck on a map you created on your parents’ computer while video chatting.
