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.

I wish people would just drop the word "innovative" when referring to MS. They have done very little innovation in the computer world. As for the ad, it was neither innovative nor funny.

MS should take a cue from Apple. I actually log into Apple's site from time to time just to see if I have missed any of their ads. And Jobs didn't have to spend $300 million to hire a comedian who is not particularly funny.
