Is the Microsoft ad (I'm a PC) supposed to be an answer to the Mac ads? If it is, then bravo; they have outdone themselves. If you can't tell, I'm being sarcastic.

The ad doesn't cater to those who do not have the capacity to understand it. It isn't meant to be a funny insult or poke towards Apple.

It's not funny, that's for sure. I'd say the ad is produced because Microsoft is trying to defend the image of John Hogman(PC), a troubled stereotype pc user, struggling with Microsoft Windows Vista. While I agree that Microsoft is not trying to poke fun, I would have to say that it is a direct respond to the Mac ads. Funny ads are more memorable, and they work!

BTW: don't be going around calling people ignorant if you don't know anything about them.

AND ISN'T ADRYNALYNE A PORNSTAR'S NAME? :devil:

So how would you make it funny?

Maybe microsoft isn't trying to stoop down to there level.

The ad's simply show that Windows is a powerful os and is not the OS they make it out to be.

Hell vista is not the ad they make it out to be.

I find it amazing how the same people complaining about vista being sluggish on there 1gb of ram seem to have no problem affording the server to run there sites or there "multiple other computers" if they simply can't spend 40$ for a 2gb kit of ram.

I didn't call anyone ignorant, but if the shoe fits...


As for my net handle, google it and find out. If its a pornstar's name, then eh...guess what sites you will find. You can rest assured that they all refer to me.

Once again...if the shoe fits :woot:

LMAO!! Deny, deny, deny right?!! Damn, you're worst than Bill Clinton on Monica. I can see you're a female because you ain't got the balls to admit what you've said.

And if you say your adrynalyne is not a pornstar's name, then sure........we believe you. After all, you didn't call anybody ignorant, right?

Do I really care if he's the creator of Windows? No. We are talking about the TV commercial here. And just because someone is an expert in something, it does not give them the right to be condescending. It's these kind of attitudes that'll bring down this country.

Also, from your use of the word "dang", I'm guessing you are a southerner, right? "Tx" in TxTazDad stands for Texas?

I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person..........did you ride a little bus to school??

damn right I'm from Texas, damn proud of it. Been doing Pro IT work for 10 years.........

Adrynalyne is a relatively "new" friend of mine, had a few convos on the phone with him as well, but I will stand by him steadfast when anyone tries to challenge his judgement, intelligence OR gender

Yeah.......I figured he was your girlfriend.

I feel sorry for all the parents who have mentally challenged children that ride that short bus to school. See, you're really making fun of them when you made that statement. You should be ashamed of yourself. :no:

Trying to correct me on spelling? I don't think it was altogether bad, considering I typed it on a CELL PHONE.


Damn, you're worst than Bill Clinton


What happened to you being a man and walking away? Grow some balls, twit.

I like you, exxon. Thanks for the good memories.
