    Sweet! I will buy one.

    Edit: I hope I don't have to buy an expensive license...

    Just saw this on engadget. It would be funny if M$ didn't take itself so seriously.. They actually think this is 'being cool' and hip.

    idiots.

    They should copy the Nike stripe, but change it just a little bit.

    Yet if it had an Apple logo and were sold by Apple it would be an amazing idea. It's only stupid because it says Microsoft.

    i'd pretty much think that i'd be a sad move by apple too. their computer companies. they don't need to be doing this imo.

    I agree, computer companies should stick to computers. However most fanboys on this site would see it exactly as I said above.

    I agree with PlaceofDis. Steve Jobs is the last person on Earth to be giving out fashion advice (as far as clothing goes). No, thanks.

    This shirt is mildly amusing, though.

    I would buy that shirt or one with a kernel panic. My inner Geek can't resist itself. :D

    No, but if someone else wants to wear it you have to ring the MS Helpline and get the t-shirt reactivated.

    The size chart:

    Basic - XS
    Home Basic - S
    Premium - M
    Business - L
    Ultimate - XL

    Oh, and you can't buy Premium - Ultimate with a pair of glasses ;)

    It would be stupid, yes - however due to the power of the Apple brand it would be less stupid I think. Both would be a tad lame since, as you say, they're computer companies.

    As far as clothing goes, The Apple logo carries more marketability than the Microsoft typeface.

    That Blue T-Shirt of Death is good! If I saw one cheap I'd grab one for myself :D
