    Hello to all,

    I came across an interesting thing while searching Microsoft's website today. On an image providing a link to download a trial version of the Server 2003, they clearly have a picture of an iBook. I guess even Microsoft appreciates the style and beauty of a Mac...

    You can find the link at:

    Or simply check out the attached image.

    Macs are beginning to turn up in the most unexpected places. Never heard of one on the Microsoft before now though :).

    Just out of curiosity.....what were you doing searching the MS website??:p ;)

    Nice, glad to know that M$ really does appreciate Macs. :)


    And as Shamus asked, why exactly were you prowling about on Microsoft's website Awenwolf? :eek: ;) :)

    That has been there for the longest time, the ibook was probably put in their by the people who designed that picture who most likely use macs.
    I have seen lots of companies with advertisements using macs, even if that means overlaying a screenshot of XP on it.
    Its a universal fact, Macs look good.

    Except now, you don't have to overlay a screenshot of XP running on a Mac in order to get such an image (the wonder of Boot Camp). :)

    I could not agree more! :D

    Well, seeing as Macs are x86 computers that happen to be able to run OS X now...it's not that big of a deal anymore ;)

    A shame really, if Apple did not switch over to using X86 chips, I could have bought a PowerBook G5 this year. :( ;) :) Oh well, I guess being able to run Windows on your Mac is a nice feature that more than makes up for this. :)
