Windows Genuine DisAdvantage® is a store loyalty card and a very rare form of spyware, providing real advantages for customers at MicroMart® and similar stores across the world. These and similar schemes are commonly known as "loyalty schemes" because they are used to obtain customer loyalty.

Notably and unusually generously, with a WGA® card, customers can Window Shop freely instead of being charged for "unlicensed peering through a window" under the usual copyright and EULA terms. WGA® points can be redeemed on a scale as follows:

  • 5 points - an original refurbished set of install floppies for Windows™ 3.1 (collector's edition)
  • 20 points - a free copy of Total Fucking Asshole Server 2006
  • 30 points - become CEO of Microsoft® for a short period of time

Market reports say that WGA® is the most popular store loyalty card ever issued, with hundreds of millions of unhappy users around the world having demanded ActiveX™ compatibility so that they can install the transparent and easy-to-remove software onto their computers.

Windows Genuinely Atrocious® is a program designed by Microsoft®. This program is designed to determine whether or not a system is a pirated copy or a legal copy. But that's what Bill Gates said "This program is designed to judge all computers as pirated copies". Even though they bought it legally, it also gives you annoying pop-ups, reminders, and a taskbar icon to remind you that your system is a pirated copy. It'll also make your system unavailable for important security updates from Microsoft®.

Origins of WGA®[edit]

The idea for WGA® was conceived after someone in marketing began to take the Tampera's song "If you buy this record your life will be better" too seriously and applied it to a software context. Early pitchbook style PointLess® presentations included the tag line "If you buy your Windows your software will run better" but this was removed from the final marketing literature as it was pointed out that this was an unfounded claim.

How WGA® Works[edit]

WGA® in action
