Microsoft has enlisted the reality-television series "Pawn Stars" in its ongoing campaign to bash rival Google.

An online video ad released Tuesday mimics the plot set up of "Pawn Stars," which features people toting precious or odd objects for appraisal at a Las Vegas pawn shop. In Microsoft's fictional telling, a woman is trying to trade in a Chromebook, a no-frills laptop powered by Google software.

"The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste, they have absolutely no taste."

But then you can buy a single product, or a volume license, which can run on real or virtual hardware, the number of CPUs/cores makes a difference and then you have CALs.

Oh god...CALs. I doubt there's a single person in the world who knows how CALs work.
