Seriously. When are you guys going to fire everybody in marketing? The laptop hunter ads have been the only thing even halfway decent out of Redmond, and they basically say, “If you were rich and cool, you’d have an Apple. Windows: for lame, poor people.” The Microsoft Songsmith and Windows 7 marketing seem to have been done by a high school class for a project. And it wasn’t a top class, if you know what I mean.
