    Wait, this is the same company that manages to created commercials like this for their games : http://ve3d.ign.com/videos/55351/Xbo...-Trailer-Redux

    But this is the best they can come up with for their new OS to get the masses interested?
    WTF? Even the Bill Gates and Seinfeld commercials where a whole lot more funny (in a very bizarre way mind you)

    HAhahahahahaHaHaHahhahahaHaHaHa.... OMG!

    In moments like this I wonder if the "conspiracy theories" about Bill Gates III when heīs described as he is the devil himself walking on earth is true? But in that case I have to stand back because I always thought a devil character was an evil but also smart guy and in this case smartness is not the selling buzz word on MS agenda...

    I hate MAC computers but at this stage I wonder if it ainīt an option. I guess Steve Jobs laugh his guts out when watching this.

    Someone in this thread asked what kind of stuff they smoke at MS, now I would like to extend this question by asking what kind of acid they have in their coffee?

    Pleasantville anyone?

    Also explaining why he still won't surcome to the cult of mac.

    Excellent, Charlie Brooker is one of my heroes and, after reading that, I think that I'm starting to get a very inapproprate crush on him.

    Are you the one to blame for this!!?? (:

    This is the only issue I have with Win7; the transparent toolbar and start bar when an app is maximized. This is terrible when I'm working on something color-critical such as Fusion unless I set the background to a neutral grey. Otherwise I like having a background pic when I'm plunking around with web windows and such. So far I haven't found a setting for this.

    That's hilarious!

    Wow. Someone should really check up on those actors and see if they need counseling or the number for a support group. Being any part of that would certainly have put me into clinical depression (if it didn't induce catatonia).

    They'll probably need chalk outlines and body bags by now.

    Doing that commercial probably hurt their career for sure.
