Microsoft starts a "Get the Facts" campaign...against itself

http://blogs.cnet.com

http://www.cyroot.com

Have you used Vista? It is like a foreign alien or something and the stupid pop-up, “Windows needs your permission”. What is pretty funny, is yes, the Mac commercial with the security guy is an accurate depiction.
