Microsoft battles Vista perception issues with $15,000 prize: How much do you love Windows Vista? A little bit? Oh, not at all huh? Well what if you were offered the chance of winning an entertainment package worth $15,000 to spend 30 minutes of your precious time looking at why Windows Vista is just so damn fantastic? Ah…thought that might change things.

....

Fact or Fiction?

But wait, there’s more! Every participant goes into the draw to win an admittedly very drool-worthy entertainment package worth $15,000 consisting of a Samsung 52” LCD TV, Sony home theatre gear and an XboX 360 Elite. Very not bad. Plus there’s secondary prizes of Xbox 360 Pro units.

Article @ APCMag


My Thoughts: Just so you know, and as the article states, this is a propaganda stunt for vista, i looked at it, and after the first 5 minutes i wanted to puke because these wern't questions, these were infact fictitious statements microsoft thinks that if they say it enough times then it must be true...

Let's just say one of the few times I see managers and developers agreeing at work is whenever Vista comes up.

Hyped and hated by millions. I'm going to downgrade to XP when I get my new PC and then install Ubuntu since I've heard lots of good things about it.

all you Vista haters! you stand no chance against the might of the mighty one! Repent before it's too late. Don't be afraid to unleash the true love for Vista that you all are hiding deep in your hearts.
