Second Seinfeld Microsoft Ad

Here is the second Microsoft commercial featuring Seinfeld and Gates:

So is it trying to sell me Vista or teach me how to live off of strangers?  I am not sure.  I laughed, I cried, I installed Ubuntu on another computer.  I guess the commercial is not working.  Well maybe it is, because I promote Linux (especially Ubuntu) to everybody that dares to talk with me about computers and right now I am writing about Microsoft.  The commercial must have something subliminal in it.

p.s. I actually laughed watching this commercial because of the absurdity of the situation.

p.p.s I wonder if what they are using on the sons computer, that Bill says will never come out, is a Linux Operating System that he does not want to compete against or us to use?

Mark Shuttleworth Having Cold Feet?

Filed under: Gates, Linux, Seinfeld, Shuttleworth, Ubuntu, Windows — Normand Bissonnette @ 6:08 pm

While surfing the net I read this article from The Register which states that Mark Shuttleworth is “nervous of encouraging people to substitute Windows for Linux”.  My first impression was What?  Why?  Must be a typo or he must have been misquoted.  I hope so, because if the main financial contributor behind Ubuntu does not believe in it, how should we the end users feel?  If Bill Gates did not believe in Windows he would not have made that silly commercial with Jerry Seinfeld.

Maybe it is just a ploy to get the developers to work harder at getting the Ubuntu Desktop as good as possible.  I just don’t know.
