Microsoft fought back in the tech wars last night, taking a leaf out of Apple’s Macbook and inciting a bizarre level of hysteria amongst their customers.
Tottenham Court Road was swamped with Windows devotees at midnight, lining up to grab the latest Microsoft operating system on its UK launch.
The Bloomsbury branches of Currys and PC World had plenty of offers for Microsoft’s fans to get excited about, with up to £400 off HP laptops and free headphones worth £150 for the first 300 customers.
Windows have finally managed to get themselves a ‘Cool Queue’ like Apple. Perhaps it won’t be long before Samsung start running adverts mocking Microsoft too?
