Baked beans?

Apple has released some new “I’m a Mac; I’m a PC” commercials aimed at Microsoft’s recent ad campaigns. The ads are called “Bake Sale”, “Bean Counter”, and “V Word.”

These ads follow (by two months) an InfoWorld article which stated that InfoWorld’s Windows Sentinel tracking data shows that 35% of enterprise-class users “downgrade” their Vista systems to XP.

(Note added October 29, 2008: I once worked for a company that would not allow any computers running XP to connect to its network unless a program called “XP Neuter” had been run to get rid of those features deemed “most objectionable,” first! I once worked for ANOTHER company that was standardized on XP, and I used it every day! :-( The above statistic is scarier than any of you “never-touched-a-PC” Mac users can imagine!) :-) Likewise, the intuitive interface of Macintosh and the “every-program-works-the-same-way” standardization of the interface brings pleasures that you “never-touched-a-Macintosh” PC users most probably cannot imagine.)
