Default The "Mojave Experiment"

The "Mojave Experiment"

It's a video showing some people who are tricked into trying Vista.
Just goes to show what people will believe about something they have no clue about and NEVER tried.
Pretty amusing none the less.

From 0-10 .. haha

Haha Microsoft is so desperate to get people to use Vista

They kind of made it "seem" like a third party did this "real" experiment... but no it's all microsoft and their new need to market

The only real reason I use it is because the 64bit version is better maintained then the XP version. Not that its a bad OS... but really there is no real reason to get it if you already have XP.

Oh on a related subject anyone else heard that they are getting Jerry Seinfeld to do commercials for Windows Vista. They are sick of the shitty MAC commercials that make no sense... I really hate those commercials... they seem to think that for some reason if you have a PC your forced to use Windows like how your forced to use the OS provided by MAC on their computers. Oh and then in a newer commercial, they advertise how you can use XP on MAC's now??? I don't understand??? Why after all the commercials complaining how windows suck would you go off and say "yay you can use XP on MAC's"... seriously I hate MAC's... that includes their shitty ipods that they seem to think are worth way more then they are.

Yup.. desperate measures call for desperate actions. This was a cute and trying ploy. Hell, they got people with no os exp supposedly and called this a true blind test,, the blind leading the blind.

Are these the same pr people who tried to make the edsel look good?

My "favorite" Vista video:

Gotta love a company that tries to portray the quality of it's product and company by using openly admitted lies and deceit.

Hey now, leave the poor Edsel alone. It was a really decent car, despite it's looks
