    Why Microsoft Sucks Movie
    Does anyone have a link to a funny "Why Microsoft/Windows/PC sucks" movie? I've searched the web and can't find any which kinda scares me.

    Someone posted a "Why Apple Sucks" movie in a forum on iStockPhoto.com and I'd like to come back with a good one. Funny how the movie that they posted doesn't work on my Mac (except for audio) and it's a wmv file. Yuck.

    Well, VLC didn't play the movie. And my girlfriend said that she couldn't even get it to play on her PC. Go figure.

    The forum is here.

    Topic is "Mac suggestions", second page, next from last.

    Here is a link to the movie.

    Actually that guy wasn't making fun of macs, he was making fun of their commericals which make fun of pc's. He is a comedian they have a site with tons of different videos they make fun of.

    Nice post.

    The latest Windows Media Player should play that videa. If you are using the latest Safari, and you have WMP installed, it will automatically try to open it with WMP. Although I don't like having MS products on my machine, some things you just gotta have sometimes, and WMP is one of them. VLC will most likely play that though, as well.

    Is this clip audo only, or is it a video clip? Because all I get is the audio, no video.

    I was under the impression that this had video with it. That is why I said that I'm having problems with it. Media Player and VLC play the file, but it's only audio. Maybe I just had the wrong impression.

    All I get is audio also and all the wmv files I've ever played, play just fine... so I would say it is just an audio clip and no video involved.

    You're all wrong..

    I'm at my cousins right now and I just downloaded the file (she's on Windows XP) and it played video, I've seen it before (when I was on my Mac) and it showed, this one is a little corrupted, I'm sure, because the guy was blue.

    Anyways, the way you can tell it was dissing on PC's is the crashing parts and the fact that when you drag files from an audio CD it converts them to mp3's and Windows is the one that just copies shortcuts.

    Ah! I just found the link:

    There, now you can all view it

    *rofl* that was pretty funny.. I remember that being the way Classic worked.. but I havent had any of those problems with OS X.. and again Classic was still better than the PC's out at that time also.. up to a point at least

    That was pretty funny though just from an entertainment point of view
