    LOL. Great ad! Totally wasn't expecting the end of that ad. Finally a good one from Microsoft.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    It's a funny ad, but what about a gigantic hourglass flying from the Windows user's screen, or the frisbee like thing in Vista? I sure get those in Windows a lot more often than beachballs in OS X.

    Sure, but just as Apple exaggerates about the problems with Windows in their ads, Microsoft is doing the same with Apple. What comes around goes around, I guess.

    LOL, I gotta admit that is pretty funny. Not sure if it's clever or anything but very unexpected.

    It's not a bad ad, but you'll only get the significance of the beachball if you're already familiar with OS X (i.e. already use a Mac).
    The average windows user is probably left scratching their head.

    Btw isn't the girl at the second desk also using a new iMac?

    I found it kind of amusing, but really... if anyone know what the ad means, it'll be users that are familiar to OS X, and, well... I don't see those people switching to Windows. They are on OS X for a reason. Regular everyday people are not going to understand the ad at all. I don't think it's going to help sell Vista.

    Funny none the less.

    So... are you saying people who use OS X are not regular everyday people?

    I don't think that ad was from Microsoft.

    I think what Ghostshadow meant was that people who just want their computer work might not totally understand the ad as, say, a computer geek.
