Of course picking on Microsoft has always been easy. Way too easy. So for me the laughing stock of this decenia has always been the inspired leader of Vodaphony and the AV bosses.
But MS has out done most of the attempts for gaining the top spot. Since absolutely no one wants or uses Vista, a low life MS marketing droid came up with the brilliant plan to show people Vista and not tell them it was Vista and record their happy feelings...Did not work, so plan B: get a well know dude to sell your stuff, that failed again.
That did not really work, so then they moved to the oldest trick in the book: if you can't beat them, copy them. So the market got a piece of MS interpretation of the fabulous "Hi I am a Mac, and I am a PC" commercials from Apple, but then done by Microsoft.
Now quess what? The stuff has been made on a ... MAC :D
Rock on loosers!
