Advertisement Vista Excitement… by Nick Santilli Jan 30, 2007 - 2:34 PM PDT 5 Comments This is what I was alluding to in yesterday’s post. People showing up for deals on other stuff – and checking out Macs! – rather than lined up to buy Vista. Even a comparison (with photo) of the Tiger launch a couple years back.

Mark 2000 January 30th, 2007 This is San Francisco. Its a Mac Stronghold. They have at least 60-70% og the laptop market and 90% of the DAP market here. Its not representative of the rest of the country. MisterKen January 30th, 2007 At our local Best Buy they had the good sense to place the Vista display next the Apple area. (And look, Zune’s are on sale…) As if MS was designing your shopping experience, no actual software is on the sales floor. You must subdue an employee (I sugggest stunning them with a bright light as they walk past) and they place a call and it is brought out to you. This leaves plenty of time for shoppers to taste what Vista wishes it could do as they play with the iMacs. Kevin Iungerman January 30th, 2007 On PBS’s newhour tonight I saw Apple’s incredible stealth ad. I couldn’t believe it. There in what ostnsibly was a discussion of Microsoft’s new Vista operating system were the PC guy and the Apple guy from Apple’s ongoing spots of the two contrasting approaches as epitomized by people. Did PBS ever see it? Kyle Korleski January 30th, 2007 Soon, the Macs will have the larger market share and I will no longer have to worry about coding sites to make them work in IE! Bwahahahaha!
