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".

Focuses on simplicity, then features

nice ads. seriously. both for content and style.

But, for the FOSS community, I would stress the campaign focuses on simplicity first, then features.

I guess you can reach almost all that features also on a linux-based system, but no without investing several weeks in configuration.

And I think this is relevant because I can see many people thinking "OK, now the mission is to make linux technically able to do all that things.", but they are wrong because this is not enough. Simplicity is also needed. Only accessible features serve real people.
