 i think Microsoft should start handing out free Xbox 360 for all the emotion and suffering caused using their Vista... instead of wasting money on commercial, those whom will buy Windows will buy it because they have to, those whom can get out of buying Windows product will probably ..... 

 
Since the release of Window OS, there seems a time that the OS should work intutively and work without having to fiddle around with it all time.... while on the other hand Microsoft has shown itself to be an impeccable Hardware Maker, i love all the mouses, keyboards, gaming machines it has released, top quality and top notch ergonomics.

I'm a big Seinfeld's buff so anything from him is going to be welcomed by me, what I think about these ads? I believe they are hilarious but aren't catering anything to the benefit of customers and or Microsoft itself. Also I don't think they're attracking new customers, maybe just assuring current owners to have faith in Microsoft and stick with them.
 
I had found Mojave experiment bit more interesting than the commercials, Microsoft's ad campaign aside I think Gates and Jerry can be a perfect duo for a new sitcom series.

Thank goodness. I like Seinfeld but those ads are stupid. Bill needs to stick with his day job.
