Burger King cooks up Windows 7 Whopper
Supersize my software
Updated Vegetarians and health freaks look away now, because Burger King has launched a stomach-churning Windows 7-themed Whopper.
Burger King's Windows 7 Whopper is on sale in Japan
The software-sponsored sandwich is filled with not one, not two, but an unbelievable seven meat patties. The burger went on sale in Burger King outlets in Japan today to mark the major OS upgrade.
Our Japanese isn’t great, but the poster – which comes direct from BK’s Japanese website – appears to suggest that the Windows 7 Whopper will be on sale in the country until 28 October.
Should Burger King bring the monster meal to Microsoft fans in the rest of the world? Or would you rather wait for your Mac OS X 10.7 tofu treat?
Japanese-proficient Reg reader Alun has since told us that the monster burger has a 13cm diameter and that each of the seven beef patties weighs 113g. Apparently BK will sell the first 30 Windows 7 burgers for ¥777 (£5.15/$8.50/€5.60), after which the meat treat's price will rise to ¥1450 (£9/$15/€10). ®

More like Fail bog.
Would you life some fiber with that?
Install Bacon v1.0 and im sold
has a burger got to do with IT?
Even those that claim to like the idea know deep down that...
...an Apple would be healthier
Love it, and (at the moment) would kill for one. After reading that, I'm so hungry my stomach thinks my throat's been cut.
Having said that, what would the Vista version be like? Slow to erase itself from your system? "Hangs" when you least want it to? Probably dozens of 700meg. patties, then forever downloading PFY-supplied smeg-infected 'mayonnaise' upgrades and the price would reflect the same?
Don't get me started on the XP version.
Paris, natch - she'd swallow an X-tra P^Hthick version. Sorry to rub it in, Paris.
