Apple Apple plans to crank up the anti-Vista rhetoric at its international chain of retail stores later this week, the latest move in a broader bid by the Mac maker to undermine the new operating system release from rival Microsoft. The campaign, set to get underway this Saturday, will include new store displays and employee t-shirts gently mocking Vista as little more than a washed-up attempt at a modern operating system, those familiar with the matter say. In a multi-page training manual made available through the company's internal retail system this week, Apple challenged its employees to learn and tout the Mac's many existing advantages over Vista-equipped Windows PCs.

I don't like the negative add campain, but I'm all for the little guy beating up on the big guy. So whats a consumer to do, I can't buy OSX to intsall on my x86 computer. Apple needs to through there money at something I can use, not negative adds.

Apple would do better with a promo that their computers are the best platform to run Vista, AND OS X.

Simple... use an OS that runs on YOUR x86 computer and stop worrying about Apple and OSX.... and be happy!

but... if you still find yourself unhappy.... uping the dosage of your meds aint going to help.....

you may have to break down and visit an apple store!
