You must first remove the plastic cover. By doing so you
agree to accept and honor Microsoft rights to all TV
dinners. You may not give anyone else a bite of your dinner
(which would constitute an infringement of Microsoft's
rights). You may, however, let others smell and look at your
dinner and are encouraged to tell them how good it is.

If you have a PC microwave oven, insert the dinner into the
oven. Set the oven using these keystrokes:
<\%heat//> Then enter:

If you have a Mac oven, insert the dinner and press start.
The oven will set itself and cook the dinner.

Be forewarned that Microsoft dinners may crash, in which
case your oven must be restarted. This is a simple
procedure. Remove the dinner from the oven and enter
\. This process
may have to be repeated. Try unplugging the microwave and
then doing a cold reboot. If this doesn't work, contact your
hardware vendor.

Many users have reported that the dinner tray is far too
big, larger than the dinner itself, having many useless
compartments, most of which are empty. These are for future
menu items. If the tray is too large to fit in your oven you
will need to upgrade your equipment.

Dinners are only available from registered outlets, and only
the chicken variety is currently produced. If you want
another variety, call Microsoft Help and they will explain
that you really don't want another variety. Microsoft
Chicken is all you really need.

Microsoft has disclosed plans to discontinue all smaller
versions of their chicken dinners. Future releases will only
be in the larger family size. Excess chicken may be stored
for future use, but must be saved only in Microsoft approved

Microsoft promises a dessert with every dinner after '98.
However, that version has yet to be released. Users have
permission to get thrilled in advance.

Microsoft dinners may be incompatible with other dinners in
the freezer, causing your freezer to self-defrost. This is a
feature, not a bug. Your freezer probably should have been
defrosted anyway.
