    Are you sure that this is an actual ad made and endorsed by Microsoft, and not one made by some fanboy or something like that? And even if it were, it would be a pathetic attempt at an ad, PCs are a hell of a lot worse when it comes to that, just think BSOD.

    And that's a bad thing why? Seems to me that the other side has been on attack (in pathetic manner, too) for almost three years.

    Very funny! :D

    But what's the point if the only people who'll "get it" are Mac users?

    Haha, I'm not sure if the ad is real, but it was pretty funny.
    But I have to say, it doesn't beat Mac Ads

    I thought it was funny, which probably means Microsoft didn't make it. I can't see them making that... :rolleyes:

    I really liked the second one. When the woman was about to show I was like "oh ya..." and then the spinning pinwheel of doom happen and I through my MBP against the wall, then realized it was part of the video... :eek:

    I didn't really throw my MBP.. :D

    Its a spoof ad.

    I don't think even Microsoft could come up with an advert that poor, don't get me wrong it was funny, but only Mac users would understand what the hell it meant.

    Edit: I also think Microsoft could afford something better than a $99 digicam to film it with.

    Funny video. I just can't really relate because I hardly ever get the beach ball, especially in work related applications.

    It's not a Microsoft advert. It's a spoof advert. But if it were - ask yourself who made the first move?

    Who tried to paint a picture of all PC users being fat, socially inept IT geeks and Apple users being the very essence of sophistication (and arrogant smarmy annoyance)

    Frankly - that advert accurately portrayed my experience of Safari until I discovered that deleting it's >4meg favicon db restored it to sanity.
