Microsoft joins Stranger Things hype with Windows 1.11 release

Netflix newest and most popular TV release is the nostalgic sci-fi series Stranger Things 3.
The third season of the 80s themed show racked over 40 million views in the first four days after the 4th of July release, and even Microsoft has decided to chime in, or perhaps forced by a contract with Netflix and its monetary value.

Regardless, Microsoft has released an app in the Microsoft Store entitled Windows 1.11. This app is bringing the authentic feel of 80s computing, more specifically in the era of Windows 1 and IBM PC in 1985.

The full description reads:
Experience 1985 nostalgia with a special edition Windows 10 PC app inspired by Windows 1.0--but one that's been taken over by the Upside Down from Stranger Things. Explore the mysteries and secrets plaguing Hawkins, unlock unique show content and easter eggs, and play retro games and puzzles--all building off Stranger Things 3. Join Eleven, Steve, Dustin and gang as they seek to save Hawkins and the world. Embrace the 80s and grab your hairspray, because it's basically the raddest show companion experience ever. But fair warning: beware the Mind Flayer.

You can get the free app here.

Someone please and tell me why this is supposed to be "cool"?
I'm not a Stranger Things viewer (yet) so please consider this when explaining. Thank you!
