Thats got me wondering – when did they remove the calendar from Windows?

Not to worry though as you can do it all through google now, can't you!

Maybe they removed it when they put it into Microsoft Office, so they can sell twice as many software packages? :)

Pathetic! He does look as a cheap car salesman.

The question, is why it cost $99 and now they are selling it for $200 or more?

This video is a send-up of course.

"Integrates Lotus 1-2-3 with Miami Vice"? I don't think so.

Apparently Ballmer and Gates used to show parody videos at developer conventions.

Interesting set of applications. "Write(ly), Calendar.."

Google 2006 = Microsoft 1985?

It's still funny, whether it's fake or not. :D
Microsoft should do more stuff like that.
Maybe some of their more recent attempts at humor are signs of a renaissance?
