    I think they are starting to get desperate. It's cute, but just not enough. Still, better than that stupid 'Mojave' one.

    I think it's interesting that it's centered on the PC and they just assume every single one is gonna use Windows.

    I think it's quite a bitchslap to those pretentious mac commercials. made into a stereotype indeed. The majority of pcs DO use an MS OS. VIVA LA PC!

    *smirks* Not to mention PC doesn't mean Windoze. I run Linux/Ubuntu on a PC, Intell CPU, Dell brand. I never liked the Mac commercials only because they kept using that term, now I am just sick of both Microsoft and Apple for almost the same reason. But the commercial is cooler than the Mac ones by far.

    Not really, about the average now, but quickly growing. The GUI is a LOT like windows, only better and with the more secure Linux OS. You may want to check it out yourself, completely free for all, they even send you a CD for free. I love it, most of the Linux stuff can be automated, the hardest part of installation is setting up the partition but it will walk you through it. Also, they support it better than Microsoft supports Windoze.

    When I was deciding on a new gaming machine last year, a friend presented the following parody of those commercials:

    *Mac walks up to PC*

    Mac: Hey, PC, whatcha doin'?

    PC: Playin' a game.

    Mac: Which one?

    PC: ALL OF THEM.

    Mac: Hey pc, whatcha doing buddy?
    PC: I've got a term paper due and so I'm using MS Office to type it out.
    Mac: Really? Macs can use MS Office now too!
    PC: Finally? *shrugs* Who gives a fuck?

    Both good, I like em. However, there is something Windoze has that all of them have now, Open Office. Everything MS Office has and more. As for the games one, that joke is true to a fault. Most games are written for Windoze because people have been using it for so long. If they hadn't started fucking it all up with XP ... now Vista ... the I would still be a Windoze fan. But, that's what happens when Bill decides he no longer cares about the company, he got too rich (he earned it by being good with business) but now he just doesn't care about the company and hasn't since 2000. Oh well. There are a lot of new games coming out in Java (YAY!) so even Ubuntu can run them. Also a lot of coders are porting out some old MS games to Linux while they make the switch (easier than I thought it would be).
