A friend and I were talking the other day about the 20th Anniversary of Windows coming up. Folks regularly buy “Collector’s Editions” of games for PC and game consoles like Xbox, but what about Windows? What if there was a 20th Anniversary Edition of Windows? What would be compelling enough that folks would want to collect it?
So what do you think- if you could add anything to a 20th Anniversary Edition of Windows, what would it be? Here are a few ideas to get it started:
- A copy of every version of Windows sold to-date (eg. Windows 3.0, 95, 98, etc.) Maybe a Virtual PC image of each?
- Microsoft Bob? (haha)
- A discount/rebate on Windows Vista when it RTMs
- Bill Gates autographed copies?
- Access to a special community?
- DVD decoder? (I don’t even know if this is possible)
How about packaging? maybe something like a cool lucite block to display your Discs? We got something like this as a Windows Vista Beta 1 “Ship-Gift” with slots for the upcoming beta 2 and later updates.
Post your comments here- what are the top 3 things you’d want to see in a Collector’s Edition?
