    Was I the only one who saw it and was like wtf, and how it kind of summed up Microsoft Products in 1 word- shit. They couldn't even pull out a half decent ad.

    For those who haven't seen it

    Ironic (JP, please confirm), given that you're probably posting from a Windows machine.

    The ad was about nothing which is based on seinfelds show about nothing how that will sell MS OS's is beyond me but I am guessing its a whole mini episode type ad being rolled out and it hopefully will make sense when it ends.

    But for now I am saying what the hell is going on with this ad which at the end of the day I guess it did its job since it peaked my interest.

    +1 it was pretty pointless, when i see an advert for a PC or some OS i wanna see the details not something with shoes and how it's going to relate to an OS with quality or any of that BS.

    the funniest thing about the whole thing was microsoft's reaction- they basically said that fact that people are talking about it means its a good thing ie: any publicity is good publicity .

    How everyone bagging the shit about microsoft after the ad was created helps the company's already tarnished rep beats me .

    Microsoft what were u thinking ....

    It would be really ironic if he was using linux.

    I think it might be more about Gates' public image than MS or it's products directly.

    If part of the plan was to humanize Gates,paring him with Seinfeld(not the warmest of characters)was a serious mistake.

    I think a lot of the campaign is hinged on people's perception that Seinfeld is such believer in the OS that it could lure him out of semi-retirement.
