Microsoft's Windows 7 Family Guy clips revealed

Before the launch of Windows 7, Microsoft teamed up with Fox to air a Family Guy episode to help create more buzz about the product prior to the launch. Not long after announcing the deal Microsoft pulled support for the episode because of "riffs on deaf people, the Holocaust, feminine hygiene and incest".

Many thought that would be the end of the collaboration between the two companies, but, in a surprising move Microsoft has posted up clips from the sponsored show on to its official YouTube channel. The clips (seen here) attempt to show off how easy and powerful the operating system is with a Family Guy twist.

The move is somewhat surprising as Microsoft distanced itself from the show after viewing an early version of what might be aired. But, Microsoft has had a small change of heart and did finally post the clips onto their official YouTube channel.
