Windows Vista Ultimate

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

So, I have wanted to play with windows Vista for some time.  Yes, me a avid mac "fanboy" as some would say, did indeed want to play with the bug ridden vista.

 

So, I happen to get a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate the other day, and decided to try out Boot Camp on my Mac Book Pro.  It works quite well so far.  I did have driver issues (it is still Windows), but eventually got everything to work. 

Vista still feels like windows.  You can tell its cumbersome and clunky.  However, I do think it looks soo much pretier than previous versons, so thats a start.

I have only had a chance to play for like 30 min, because I spent the first 2 hours of Vista fixing the driver issues.  I will keep you posted on what I think later.

Microsoft starts Apple Attack Ads

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
Not that I can really blame them, but Microsoft has started a advertising campaign to attack Apple's "I'm a Mac/I'm a PC" ads.  The first started out with a Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld ad that left everyone saying "wtf?".  Microsoft pulled the ads, and fired Sienfeld.  

Now... Micorosoft has changed tact, and started a set of attack ads to say "I am a PC."  All I have to say, is: they are good.  Microsoft finally figured it out.  They show real people all over the world, using PCs in their lives.  Its just too bad that the commercials and advertisements themselves were made on Macs.  

The real question from these well designed ads is: Will it work?  I would venture to say no.  Microsoft is trying to play the victim card.  It is the largest company in the world, and it is trying to remind the world that people still use PCs.  The ads do not attempt to show why people should stay with Microsoft, or why they think their product is better.  These ads just tell the world that lots of people use PCs.  

Another fun thing to think about, is how scared Microsoft must be right now.  Thats a good sign for Apple me thinks.
