What's the Deal with Vista?

I can imagine Jerry Seinfeld doing a pretty good stand-up routine about Vista. What's the deal with Vista? Vista users don't care what runs on their computers -- they care what doesn't. And what's up with Bill Gates? This guy is so rich, he can afford a Vista machine that doesn't crash. It's called a MacBook.

But nooo. Instead of poking fun, old Jerr is getting $10 million to convince us all that Vista is cool as part of a $300 million advertising campaign.

How about spending this dough on some device driver development? And who's the ad whiz that came up with this idea anyway?
