Microsoft on October 26 rolled out Windows 8 — that’s not news to aNewDomain.net readers. We’ve been covering the release of this new operating system for months and months. Our own +Ant Pruitt even broke the Windows 8 server story for you during Mobile World Congress (MWC 2012) in the spring. So what is new about today’s release of Windows 8? We’ll start with a Windows 8 parody video roundup and let her rip.
Speaking of ripping, scroll below to see Oracle chairman and founder Larry Ellison rip into a heckler. What’s that got to do with Windows 8? Watch and find out.

My choice for funniest and most politically incorrect goes to the Hitler plans to upgrade to Windows 8 video. Got a vote on what you liked best in the Windows 8 parody video roundup? Got one to add of your own? Drop me a line. I’m Gina@aNewDomain.net.
