Fake, fake, fake

I spent a lot of time during Longhorn's early days debunking fake screenshots people had created of Microsoft's then-next-OS. It's happening again with Windows 7, of course. And while I'd like to keep this kind of thing to a minimum, this video is fake.

Not just fake. Fake, fake, fake. Really fake. Obviously fake. Stupidly fake. The "screen capture" part shows off SnagIt, a third party application I use nearly every single day. This is "didn't even try hard" fake.

So please don't email me about it. But please do feel free to ridicule and/or ignore those who weren't savvy enough to figure it out.

Moving on....
