WHY ARE THEY USING MACS!?!??! the book of Microsoft clearly states: One cannot serve two masters. You must choose Microsoft or you must choose Apple. He will either love one and hate the other, or hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve Microsoft and Apple.

blasphemers.

I am sure loads of people have said the same thing, but this took a while to tell it was not real.
My favourite lines ( and the one that made me think it was not real):
`Can we make the line thinner?`
`No`

I could tell straight from the start that it was fake.

1) The computers that are in the backgrounds (presuming they used them to "create" the software) are Macs. Go figure?

2) They are all too young to have developed such an old program

But when she says "Can you make the line thinner?", that kinda made it obvious it was a spoof...

funny as hell

MS Paint - most underated computer graphics program EVAR!

Seriously, I still use Paint and while it takes me three times using it as opposed to a newer program, it does EXACTLY what I want. The 18 colours is bullpoo, btw. You can get thousands of colours going if you go into the custom palette menu.

So yeah, MS Paint=Good
