Windows FP (aka: Windows Fisher Price), is the successor to Windows 2000.
Also known as 'Windows XP'. This was the last stand of a dying corporation to save itself, from itself. The interface was designed by the team who delivered the Apple Macintosh almost twenty years earlier, but is neither as stable, nor as easy to use.
Windows FP was seen by many as an attempt to make the Windows OS more Mac-like. However, with a GUI incapable of smooth transitions, the results appear more like melted-candy corn than the inimitable Mac OS X that it tries so hard to be.
Visual cues apparently have been taken from the local kindergarden. Everything is either big, lurid, or unnecessary (sometimes all three). Plagued with problems throughout, it's party-piece was it's ability to crash all by itself.
Me: "Dude, is that your lil' bro's toy you rollin'?"
You: "No dude, it's my new Windows FP"
