Watch Microsoft's First Windows 8 Commercial Here

By - Source: Windows YouTube Channel | B 32 comments

Microsoft just kicked off its Windows 8 TV campaign with its first ad for the new OS.

After months of waiting, Microsoft's Windows 8 is almost here. Microsoft has scheduled the launch for October 26 and plans to launch its Surface tablets at the same time. While Microsoft is keeping pretty quiet about the Surface, it's taking a different approach with Windows 8. There's already been several preview releases of the software, and several hardware partners have already made announcements regarding upcoming Windows 8 devices.

Microsoft upped the ante, releasing the first Windows 8 commercial. Check it out below:

    I love how all the computers are touch screens. Lets see how great this pile is when you use a mouse and keyboard.

    This is so sad and poor at the same time. Poor product, from what I know. Sad commercial for trying to blend it in with a subliminal message and 'happy' moments.

    Agree. When you look at the Surface commercial looks much more professional and polished. This one looks dull and home made. Was this made on some free Windows Movie Editor? :-)

    Fingers crossed for Windows 8 (and Surface and WP8) crashing and burning. They shouldn't have messed with the desktop.

    @maximus81, yeah, and no doubt people will be crowding into computer stores to drop twice as much on a touch-screen monitor . . . LOL!!!

    Let's see, umm, yeah--I'm going to go back to a 22" touch screen monitor that costs twice as much as the 27" LED monitor I'm using now . . . not likely.

    Wow, all I can say is wow.... Holy hell, for $1.5 billion I was expecting Jenna Jamison (semi-nude), or a worthless baseball player like ARod to show there face in the commercial. Alas, nope. Jenna Jamison alone would make pre-pubescent males go pick up a copy. Now all I can see is a picture of Ozzy Osbourne in that famous photo of him taken a dump....with a Win 8 retail box under his derriere.

    hmmm seems to perfectly describe the crapple-touch generation. Lots of colors, playing games that should be free browser games within FLASH, without any clear structure on hardware that is to expensive for anybody (what was the basic idea of a PC???) and all day long laughing because they are to sad to cry. I'll stick to my oldfashioned non-smartphone, classic desktop playing crysis (1-2h at night) and getting out meeting real people....bye

    thats because majority want touchscreen, not that they really need, but its cool. imagine flicking pictures of your holidays on 20+inch screen, 4 inch screen is so last year...
    it is so many crapgardedts around and people are buying not because they need it but because they can

    Holy cow, did you see how close that girl is to the screen at the :10 mark?! Eh, first of all, if thats a touch screen, then its about a 27" and that would put it at well over 1K and second of all, thats pretty much how close you have to be to use touch screen, otherwise you would have to be leaning in and out of a chair to use it. :/  pass

    They went up for pre-order on Microsoft's website, the pricing was unveiled. Both the 32 and 64 GB versions apparently sold out within 15 minutes and Microsoft has since pulled them from the online store.

    Wat...

    Lol, no, it was mistakenly put up early. It's available now and definitely not sold out (at $500 for the base model w/o touch pad, I'm not surprised).
