    Internal Microsoft Video

    I know Microsoft has had some serious image problems due to many videos on the web, but this is really up there.

    I already have Vista.

    Big ROFLs at the funny video. At least their are still some people with a sense of humour in marketing.

    I have been holding off on Vista and now that Billy is talking about OS7 being out as early as next year I’ll keep holding off.

    Wow, not only so they make a complete complete of crap for whatever reason that I don't even care because I hate Vista already, they copy one of the most talentless and selfish hacks who's ever lived.

    Yeah, I can't see how any being with a fully-functioning brain could see this as anything but a joke. And it's damn funny. Just proof that there really was a mass-ceremony where the majority of the human race had their senses of humour surgically removed in compliance with... something.

    I know they have a sense of humor. The one internal video they did of "What if Microsoft Designed the iPod Box Art" was a hilarious jab at themselves. But that actually gives them street cred. This, unfortunately, just makes them look....weird.

    i hate VISTA.
    Me Smash Vista.
    Rage.

    it is hubris (IMHO) for MS to dump a turd of an OS that practically rejects a majority of software, hardware that people already own, goes against the whole concept of software evolution- K.I.S.S.- and then after telling us this is the greatest thing since sandwiches, that we're getting a new OS.

    what if Sony made the PS3, then, 6 months after launch- and lacking even a decent library and promises of 100s of great games by Christmas- they pull the plug by announcing that by Christmas, there's gonna be a PS-IV.
    no backwards compatibility, new hardware, new controllers, etc.
    Only the drooling, bib wearing level of gamer would support that, so why can Microsoft do this kind of thing?

    I see evil geeks sitting in a cubicle laughing at us.

    Vistas not that bad if you have a decent machine $800 ish range but if you spend $399 on a machine and expect it to be great than you need to be smacked.

    I have Vista on this machine and have no problems with it.

    Though that video has made me say 'Why, why, why in the whole wide world of why would anyone watch the video?'
