Bloggers beware - Microsoft had the last laugh

It seems that a spoof ad video for Vista had the bloggers in apoplexy over Microsofts incompetence.

It seems it was a joke (it needs to be it's so bad) and the indignation backfired.

The video is awful - but can you give us a link to the story.

Thanks

Seems even MS can't take Vista seriously :0)

No, I think it's quite good when organisations can laugh at themselves. It healthy.

I like and am happy with Vista but I also think it's good that XP, as an excellent OS, has demonstrated that not everyone wants bells and whistles. Horses for courses.

A 'twanger' is made from a little open topped box with elastic bands round it.
You can 'twang' the bands (and pretend it is a guitar) to make musical sounds.
