    I rember reading about a switch ad microsoft made a while back. I never got to see it, and was wondering if any of you guys had a copy you wouldn't mind posting. Its probably WMV, but thats ok. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I never heard of one

    If there was one, I would like to see it too. But the question is, what are you switching from? Would this be a commercial way back in the late 80s or so?

    all i remember is microsoft posting a switch ad on their web site, not a movie, just a web page and it was created by microsoft, no truth behind it. word quickly got around and it was pulled out of embarassment.

    I believe the girl in the photo who was enjoying using Microsoft products actually worked for the ad company. Which, if you think about it, she'd have to. Is there anybody in the known universe that "enjoys" M$ products?

    If I remember correctly, the photo of the girl was taken from an image bank.

    Yeah. Right.
    Boring game titles, extremely limited number of game releases, terrible controllers and a damn ugly piece of hardware.

    But I guess that's kind of OT. ;)
