That just didn't do it for me.

"Wth is a switcher?" I hear many people scream out as the commercial fades to white.

In this case, I guess it's a joke: instead of a "switcher" in the PC-to-Mac sense, he's a switcher in the Merry Christmas-to-Happy Holidays sense.

I'm incredibly dense then. I didn't see it immediately.

I was hoping for something more along the lines of "It was time my workshop got some upgrades and I was tired of having to reboot my server all the time...time is money in the toy industry...now I had to let most of my IT Elves go but it's a holiday that demands sacrifice, etc.."

:D

Too late. It's possible that Santa has switched to Linux (http://www.bbspot.com/News/2002/12/santa_linux.html) (well, unless Balmer flew to the North Pole and gave Santa some crazy discounts).

Haha that would have been great. Since Will Farrell was in it, I was expecting it to be funnier. :(

lol, thanks for the link, funny story :D

Santa has more leverage than most of Microsoft's customers said one analyst. "He's made some veiled threats about Xboxes falling off the sleigh while he's flying over the Atlantic. I also heard he threatened to move Gates and Ballmer to the Naughty List."

I thought this was the best switch ad.

Classic.
