Description:

**update**
Logo and text is smaller and less distracting. Background is darker too. Changes were largely based off the original work of which this spoof is made on. And yes the plural form of ho is "hoes" for anyone in doubt.

The Windows logo with a twist. This should go great with the KDE's XP color scheme. The humor should be taken lightly. This should be obvious to the viewer as a spoof on windows xp. There's no hidden agenda here... just humor.

a hoe is a garden tool, the word you are looking for, is ho, i believe.

its pretty stupid and immature, if you ask me, but whatever, your desktop, not mine...

I'm not a huge MS fan either. And I don't typically go out for this sort of thing. But it kept a lot of us laughing at the office for a while. (Not the "Winhoes" portion, but the "Micropimp" portion... subtle is very, very good).

Incidently. You are correct. A "hoe" is a garden instrument. But, most words ending with an "o" add an "es" when being made plural.

It doesn't matter to me. I'm not a pimp, so I wouldn't know. I'm glad that someone got a kick out of this. It was admittedly a quick hack in the gimp. I thought someone might find it funny, that's why I submitted it. I plan on creating some of my own original designs soon. Next time I do a spoof, I'll be sure to care of the details. I'm not sure I should bother fixing this one from "winhoes" to "winhos" unless there's enough requests. But I won't hold my breath on that.

"Ho" is the singular, "hoes" would be the plural. So "Winhos" would be incorrect - it would come out sounding like "when-hoss" or "when-hozz". You need the e in the plural to keep the o long.

In the singular, "ho" is correct, because "ho" is slang for "whore".

be subjective. Tell me what works and what doesn't work. What I should've done and what I should've not done. And don't just give a lame, one line opion, like "it sucks!". Back up your opinions with actual reasons. Oh, and thanks! Your comments are appreciated.
