Sometimes you are just handed a freebie and it’s all you can do to stop yourself from swooning in delight. This is such a freebie. Microsoft is about to start a big new ad campaign to promote all the wonderful things you can do with the aging Windows XP Operating System. Their ad department apparently don’t agree as they did at least some of the art work using Adobe Photoshop on a Macintosh. To see for yourself, get yourself a copy of Textpad or another text editor that can handle binary (HEX) formats and then download this image from Microsoft’s web site and open it in your editor. If you look down a few lines, you will see this: “Adobe Photoshop CS Macintosh 2005:04:07 11:35:29”. (Be aware that the image is nearly 8MB in size.) Get your copy of the image from their site while you can as it isn’t likely to be around for long now that Microsoft know the secret is out. Apparently all the wonderful things you can do with Windows XP doesn’t include making advertising images for Microsoft, at least for one or more of their artists. For that/those creative soul(s), a “no Microsoft software” solution was the answer going by that text string in the image. This bodes very well for Apple’s upcoming OSX Tiger release and if they are smart, they’ll make good use of it.
