What if a so-called “ugly sweater” is actually just the type of throwback apparel that people would want to wear? Microsoft’s official Windows Twitter feed is finding that out after baiting followers with the giveaway of a Windows 95 sweater.
The custom “softwear” from the software giant features the old logo for the program, pixelating across the front of a white and blue sweater in all of its red, green, blue and yellow glory.
The Windows team — with 6.2 million followers — promised to give a few away to lucky fans, and as of Friday morning, 6,000 people had replied to the tweet. Check out some of the best responses below.

Does it turn blue several times a day and need to be taken off and put back on?
