What you need to know

  • This year's Windows Ugly Sweaters are now available for order.
  • There are MS Paint, Windows XP, and Windows 95 ugly sweaters.
  • Microsoft donates a portion of the proceeds from the sweaters to Girls Who Code.

In the holiday version of the good, the bad, and the ugly, Microsoft's Windows Ugly Sweaters (opens in new tab) are now available. The good, for every sweater you purchase, Microsoft donates $20 to Girls Who Code. The bad, I mean, look at the sweaters. The Ugly, again, just look at them. The sweaters start at $70, and you'll want to grab one quickly as they often sell out quickly. At minimum, Microsoft will donate $50,000 to Girls Who Code.

There are three Windows Ugly Sweaters this year; MS Paint (opens in new tab), Windows XP (opens in new tab), and Windows 95 (opens in new tab). Each one of them is uglier than the last but in a charming sort of way that makes them perfect for holiday parties.
