Posting to his ZDNet blog, Ed Bott notes what may be the first public manifestation of Microsoft's promised new ad campaign.
Bott quotes Tim Anderson as saying "Vista is now actually better than its reputation." To which I'm tempted to answer ‘Duh! So was Mac OS X 10.1 better than Vista's reputation!’ Cruel, perhaps, but true.
It's particularly ironic that Microsoft seems poised to compare Vista's detractors with members of the Flat Earth Society, since such a comparison would be far more aptly applied to those who are all too ready to cut Microsoft miles of slack and repeatedly give them a pointedly undeserved benefit of the doubt.
