"There is such an overvaluation of technology stocks that it is absurd. I would
include our stock in that category. It is bad for the long-term worth of the

Attention Microsoft: I’m A PC (Running Ubuntu Linux)

,----[ Quote ]
| Talk about ironic. Microsoft has launched a new chapter of its Windows Vista
| advertising campaign, branded around the line “I’m a PC.” I suspect Microsoft
| is trying to communicate that PCs have open architectures and have a far
| larger user population than Apple Macintoshes. Still, Microsoft overlooked
| one important fact in its “I’m a PC” ad campaign: The best part of open
| hardware involves the rising popularity of open software like Ubuntu Linux.

Microsoft’s 'Phase 2' ad campaign - No mention of Vista anywhere

,----[ Quote ]
| Has the “Vista” name become so toxic that Microsoft dare not even mention it
| in any of the ads? Are these ads designed to help Vista or are they being
| aired to pave the way for Windows 7?

Microsoft’s ‘I’m a PC’ Ads Created On Macs

,----[ Quote ]
| In 2003, Microsoft fired an employee who posted a photo of new PowerMac G5
| systems being delivered to the company onto his blog.
|
| At the same time, the company has no problem showing the vast numbers of Macs
| it buys to test builds of Office for Mac within the MacBU. Microsoft is
| apparently still the largest Mac developer outside of Apple.
