Title: Windows 98 marketing
: Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Date: April 4, 1998
About this cartoon: When Microsoft unveiled its highly successful Windows 95, it paid exorbitant money to the Rolling Stones to use their song "Start Me Up" as an advertising jingle. It brought out Windows 98 during its anti-trust trial brought by the United States Department of Justice.
Noteworthy: It was fun thinking which Stones song might fit all the legal and technical problems Microsoft was having with Windows 98.
