    Dear Consumas:


    It has come ta our attention dat a coupola copies of the WINDOWS
    BROOKLYN EDITION may have accidentally bin shipped outsida
    Broooklyn. If ya got one a dese, you may need some help understandin'
    da commands.

    Da Brooklyn edition may be recognized by da unique openin' screen. It
    reads: "WINDAS 98," wit a background picture of Grand Army Plaza.When
    you start da program, instead of da usual "harpy, stringy" music, you
    hear da teme from da Godfadda. It is also shipped wit a Sopranos
    screen sava.

    Please also note:

    -Recycle Bin is labeled "Staten Island."

    -The Inbox is referred to as "Da Trunk."

    - Deleted Items are referred to as "Wacked," "Erased," or "Rubbed Out."

    - Dial up Networking is called "Da Bar."

    - Control Panel is known as the "Da Bosses."

    - Performin' an "illegal operation" is known as "enhancin' the family
    business" and will actually maximize da program instead of shuttin'
    it down.

    - Hard Drive is referred to as "Da BQE Rush Hour."



    CHANGES IN TERMINOLOGY IN DA BROOKLYN EDITION:

    OK...................Sure ting
    Cancel...........Fugetaboutit
    Reset.............Start Ova
    Yes.................Yeah

    Settings..........Here's d' Rules

    Also note dat any voice recognition software run on da BROOKLYN
    EDITION platform don't recognize da letter "R."

    Some programs and udder accessories dat are exclusive to WINDAS:

    Typa................A word processin' program
    Printa...............Printer
    Calculata..........Calculator
    Solitare.............Seven Card Stud

    We regret any inconvenience it may have caused if you received a copy
    of da BROOKLYN EDITION. You may return it to Microsoft for a
