First the graphical user interface. Then copying so many of Apple’s OS features. Then, most all of Microsoft’s partners trying to stylize their boxes in response to Apple’s designs. Next, the Zune, a total iPod ripoff. Now Microsoft is even copying Apple’s advertising methods. Oh, it will be funny, alright. Come to think of it, how about putting that $300 million ad budget into system improvements instead?

My understanding of Seinfeld, is that he didn’t have a computer in his home/apt on the show. How do I get to identify him with Pro-PC? The actors in the Ads are no where near as important as what is presented as FACT in them. If your trying to sell a computer, you can joke, but the truth better be there. It is due to the crummy quality of MS products that Anti-Virus companies are gazillionaires. How are you gonna “laugh” that off, Gates?

Oh yeah, that guy. Sure, get a guy who was popular back at the end of the previous millennium to try to sell your oh-so-advanced operating system.
