Some things are even more confusing than Windows Vista.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

It's a commercial about nothing!
All I wanted after watching that ad was a churro, but the bakery was already closed.

I like this ad. I assume that it's a teaser, and the relationship and story will develop over several ads. If the problems of Microsoft in general, and Vista in particular were solely ones of image, this campaign might help. But you can't gild a turd.

P.S. I don't know if that last statement is factually correct. Has anyone ever tried?

I am not sure about gilding one (though having stuff like that bronzed was pretty popular amongst the naff at one point [Big Grin] )

However round here the saying is "can't polish a turd" and that is most definitely true
