Dear Consumers

Dear Consumers:

It has come to our attention that a few copies of the WINDOWS 98 BROOKLYN EDITION may have accidentally been shipped outside Brooklyn.

If you have one of these, you may need some help understanding the commands. The Brooklyn edition may be recognized by the unique opening screen.

It reads: "WINDAS 98," with a background picture of Grand Army Plaza. When you start the program, instead of the usual "harpy, stringy" music, you hear the theme from the Godfather. It is also shipped with a Sopranos screen saver.

Please also note:

The Recycle Bin is labeled "Bedford Stuyvesant."

My Computer is called "My Friggin' Computer."

The Inbox is referred to as "The Trunk."

Deleted items are referred to as "Wacked," "Erased," or "Rubbed Out."

Dial up Networking is called "The Bar."

Control Panel is known as the "The Bosses."

Performing an "illegal operation" is known as "enhancing the family

business" and will actually maximize the program instead of shutting it down.

Hard Drive is referred to as "The BQE Rush Hour."

Instead of an error message a "You ain't gonna friggin' believe this!" pops up.

We regret any inconvenience it may have caused if you received a copy of the BROOKLYN EDITION. You may return it to Microsoft for a replacement version.
