       The Top 9 Differences If Movies Were Made by Microsoft 

 9. Spider-Man battles the evil Netscapian.

 8. A little microphone-guy keeps appearing in the corner of the
    screen, offering to explain the plot.

 7. Anthony Michael Hall and Charles Martin Smith join the
    $25 Million Club.

 6. You only want to see an Adam Sandler comedy, but it comes
    bundled with a documentary on plankton, a nudist western,
    three Ronald Reagan movies and a musical starring cows.

 5. If a film opens on more than 99 screens, it crashes.

 4. There's lots of exciting hype and advertising, but the movie
    is never as impressive as the previews make it out to be.
    Wait a minute... differences?

 3. Sure, Microsoft makes the big blockbusters, but the indie
    flicks by Linux are better.

 2. If the movie breaks -- which it will at its most critical
    moment -- the screen goes blue and everyone has to watch it
    again from the beginning. 

              and the Number 1 Difference if Movies
                    Were Made by Microsoft...

 1. The film is in the "new standard" 35.4mm format, but the
    projectors still only show 35.
