Microsoft Publishes Comparison Web Page on Why Windows 7 is Better Than Mac OS X

Microsoft has erected a new section on its Windows 7 that compares PC to Macs. Of course, it being from Microsoft, the Windows-based machine is the superior one.

Microsoft points out that Windows 7 is better than Mac OS X at:

  • Having Fun
  • Simplicity
  • Working Hard
  • Sharing
  • Compatibility
  • Choice           

Check out all the points below:

    I agree with Microsoft the most on the last point.

    Macs get "attacked" less by malware and such because they are a minority. I kid :)

    This is some aggressive ad xD

    Why they publish this?
    The Windows 7 market share outperform the Mac OS X share so easily, so there is nothing to say.
    Windows 7 is better and the price of a PC is better than a Mac one.
    (and sorry... but also less buggy... yes a Microsoft product with less bugs than a Mac product...)

    This ad takes the exact same standpoint as Mac's old "I'm a Mac" ads except it avoids having two douchebags on TV. Even though some of the points are biased - and they should be, it is their advert - this seems far less pretentious. Bring on the tears of Mac users; they sustain me.

    Probably very similar people who buy into Apple's campaigns...

    While most of this is marketing FUD, I will agree on many of the points, and mostly on Windows 7, is actually better than Mac OS X. I have both. Windows 7 is the most well put together OS MS has ever created and it's the easiset to use and cleaniest. I dare say this is finally a worthy successor to XP.

    Substitute all the instances of the word "Macs" with "Steve Jobs".
    Makes a lot more sense that way.

    "Steve Jobs might spoil your fun" - you got that right!
