Windows Microsoft's absurdist TV ad starring the odd couple of Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld is just the first volley in what promises to be a shock and awe campaign aiming to improve the public image of Windows Vista and position itself as a computing innovator.

While I agree that I wouldn't be suggesting windows as a high-performance computing environment. The top 500 supercomputers reference should also be taken with a grain of salt considering most supercomputers are pretty exotic hardware that you likely couldn't even make windows boot on. Alas, the comment regarding the divergence is a scary thought, since the current trend for many large corporations in industry using such software for dynamic simulation is away from aging UNIX boxes and toward pc workstations.
