Here's a commentary on this very commercial.


That's like getting Rush's opinion on Obama! (let me give you a hint...he won't agree with him)

I like that these ads are getting people talking...for or against Windows.

I think it is funny how every pro-Apple commentary is quick to point out how much money Microsoft is throwing away on these new ads. I probably don't even need to write this down since Apple has made this a point of one of their ads: $300 million

Can anybody guess what *Apple* spends on advertising every year?

About half a *billion* dollars!

There are plenty of shortcomings on a Mac that most people are not aware of. The current crop of ads do a great job of pointing out how much more money you will spend on a Mac. This makes sense since the economy is terrible.

Check out the new (out Thurs) "Apple Tax" paper that points out the cost of a Mac is more than just the expensive hardware.

Other shortcomings I hope the ads will address:
- Photoshop only runs 32-bit on Mac, but can run 32-bit or 64-bit on Windows
- video games
- development software
- compatibility with software
- compatibility with hardware
- lack of backward compatibility support
