In an attempt to shock, if not completely astonish the IT media world, Microsoft has just announced plans to enter into the clothing retail market. Dubbed "Softwear by Microsoft", the new clothing line is a collaboration project between Microsoft and thinkcommon.com in which the company intends to recreate the nostalgic days of DOS and a younger Bill Gates.
As of now, the clothing range is currently only covers t-shirts, with designs featuring anything from retro MS-DOS fonts to Gates's famous Misdemeanor mugshot when arrested for speeding violations. Overall, the product line is intended to evoke the '80s, an influential time in the history of the personal computer.
