Windows I never thought it was possible, but as it turns out, Microsoft has managed to produce some pretty good commercials for its brand new operating system, Windows 7. They are quite product-oriented, and carry the slogan "I'm a PC and Windows 7 was my idea".

C'mon guys... an OS is a freakin commodity... you can't try to sell it as a "cool" o "interesting" product anymore ... nobody cares about an OS and its features. psst

Actually, I agree with you, to an extent. People don't buy operating systems. They buy computers. And new COMPUTERS are "cool and interesting". So your point is moot.

Microsoft is stuck at 1997... out-fashioned, anachronic, uninspiring. Microsoft looks like General Motors ten years ago... bleak future.

I dunno. Preorders for Windows 7 seem to be setting records, so apparently the world disagrees with your assessment.
