    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 (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. :(

    I thought this was the best switch ad.

    Classic.
