Idiot (but Funny) Code about Microsoft Marketing Strategy


Dear all…
I was searching the articles about Microsoft Marketing Strategy for my DK3236-task when I found this fake page yesterday. It is said to have deceived many people like me. To all the Microsoft fans, take it easy, it just an idiot code for joking. No offense, dudes😛
