Microsoft Unleashes "Vista Doesn't Suck" Campaign On World

You might remember that Microsoft dropped the hint that they were working on countering Apple's Mac/PC ads. Well, the battle begins now. Microsoft has created a website to give users compelling reasons to update to Vista. It has a rather frank admission from Microsoft:

"When Windows Vista debuted in January 2007, we declared it the best operating system we had ever made. "Windows Vista is beautiful," The New York Times raved. It's humbling that millions of you agree.

But we know a few of you were disappointed by your early encounter. Printers didn't work. Games felt sluggish. You told us-loudly at times-that the latest Windows wasn't always living up to your high expectations for a Microsoft product."

Then Microsoft goes into great detail about how Vista has improved since then with "100 Reasons Why You'll Be Speechless" as well as "10 Things To Try."

Ah, Sony's own BSOD!

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3769d ago

We at Sony are not interested in an OS.Apple does a fine enough job of owning Windows all the time.Besides we rather focus on making better games,reliable hardware,innovations,you know the stuff that Microsoft rushed on and stumbled on.

I bought an ultra cheap laptop and, the first thing I did was install Linux over the Vista Basic that was "included".

That may count as a Vista sale, but I won't be using it...

Well it's not 100% a lousy product. It's more misguided and should have never been fractured into so many versions. All and all I have to say there's a bit of a thrill and joy in modding Vista to work as I want it as in the olden days of WIN98 and WINXP/2000.

It's like a rubix cube that someone else has messed up, leaving you the puzzle of solving it and making it right.

However, reading this list, they're doing Apple's "300 'new' features in OS X Leopard". The 10 and 100 lists are jokes. Marketers take note.

As I always use to say, If something works fine don't F with it...

This has never come to many others minds...

Lmfao, what the f*ck?
I'm sorry but Vista sucks. :/

Fishy Fingers3769d ago

Definitely doesnt "suck", but it neither excels over XP as a operating system or a gaming platform.

Milky3768d ago

It sucks so much. I am using it right now and it so slow and annoying. How do you install linux ?
