The release of Windows 7 is a very critical moment in Microsoft’s history, especially since the Windows Vista disaster, and Microsoft needs to make sure everything is perfect. In addition to the launch, Microsoft has partnered with companies around the world to celebrate the release of Windows 7, including fast-food giant Burger King.
If you want to know what fast food has in common with general technology (especially Windows 7), the answer lies in the so-called Windows 7 Whopper. Launched exclusively in Japan, this special edition of the burger is a way to celebrate the debut of Windows 7, so the burger uses seven separate stacked beef patties for 777 yen (then just over $8.50) and sells for just seven days. However, due to its super success, Burger King finally decided to extend its sales time, so the sales deadline for Windows 7 Whoper burgers is November 6.
The burger is no less than 5 inches (13 cm) tall and the weighing height of the scale is 1 kg (2.2 lb), so it is very delicious. Considering the seven stacked beef patties, it has more than 1,000 calories. Like Windows 7 itself, Windows 7 Whopper eventually became super-successful, with Burger King selling no less than 6,000 copies in its first four days, causing an internet sensation, as blogs and YouTube podcasts have addressed in articles and videos.
