Microsoft Opens Windows 7 Restaurant in Taiwan

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 42 comments

Sure, Windows 7 is good, but is it good enough to eat?

When Windows 7 launched, the Windows 7 Whopper selling in Japanese Burger King locations made headlines the world over. Similar to the way a lot of fast food chains capitalize on the launches of highly anticipated Hollywood blockbusters, Burger King was taking advantage of all the Windows 7 hype. With seven patties, it was definitely deserving of the Whopper brand but the limited edition burger was soon off the menu.

Those of you still mourning the loss of the Windows 7 Whopper can console yourselves with this new Windows 7 restaurant in Taiwan. Open just in time for the annual techgeek invasion that is Computex, Microsoft Taiwan is said to have worked with a famous seafood restaurant to come up with seven dishes featuring Windows 7. Available for just two months, Micgadget reports that you can only get a taste of one NTD$77 dish (about three U.S. dollars) each day.

    The food's good, but they have the worst servers. They're always crashing.

    I'm getting confused about this whole BSOD thing. I haven't experienced it one time in the seven months I've been using Win7.

    Same here. No slow startups either. I'm also running 23 Servers, one runs 2000, a bunch are on 2003, a couple on 2003 R2, a couple on 2008, and a few on 2008 R2. All of which are rock stable and run for months non-stop (they could go longer, but every once in a while I break down and run the damn updates). Anywho, the XP machines are the only ones that have the slow startups, but still no crashing or BSOD (since BSOD is a HARDWARE issue, it rarely happens when you buy good hardware and install it properly). No issues at all with the Win7 and OS X 10.6 machines.

    I just had my first bsod the other day after almost a year and a half of windows 7. It's been so long since I've seen one (I got lucky and only had three or four with vista) that instead of annoying me it almost made me nostalgic, lol.

    Almost all BSODs these days are caused by unstable overclocks.

    However, I did get one from the BBC iPlayer when I went into fullscreen mode. I've had a few crashes from that.

    you should get a free meal if you purchased windows 7 at one point. (if only restaurants were that generous)

    The only BSODs I've had is in someone elses' computer, it was an old machine from 2004 running Windows Vista Business, upgrading to Windows 7. I first decided to install some updates along with the service pack 1 since and it caused a crash in the graphics driver because the GPU wasn't detected properly(the GPU is 8 years old). After installing the correct driver and going to Windows 7 there's been no problems with the OS. However, the computer is still crap IMO.
