Microsoft is entering the holiday spirit a little early today by introducing an “ugly” MS Paint-themed jacket For sale in her online store, Along with a portion of the proceeds from each sale donated to Girls Who Code. The company made Windows XP and 95 sweaters in the past to give out super influencers and fans, but this is the first time the company has sold a jacket directly to customers.

There were briefly three types of “soft-wear” from Microsoft available for purchase this morning: the previously mentioned MS Paint jacket and the remaining stock of Windows 95 and XP sweaters.

Since MS Paint comes installed on Windows rather than sold separately, it’s hard to see exactly how this year’s jacket will be packed, but there’s hope for Microsoft’s goofy trend to continue. The company clearly has some sweater enthusiasts in its ranks; Perhaps it is a latent part of the Bill Gates influence?
