DIRECTIONS for MICROSOFT TV DINNER
1. You must first remove the plastic cover. By doing so you agree
to accept and honor Microsoft rights to all TV dinners.
2. You may not give anyone else a bite of your dinner (which would
constitute an infringement of Microsoft's rights). You may,
however, let others smell and look at your dinner and are encouraged
to tell them how good it is.
3. If you have a PC microwave oven, insert the dinner into the

only in Microsoft approved packaging.

However, that version has yet to be released. Users have permission
to get thrilled in advance.

not a bug. Your freezer probably should have been defrosted anyway.
