Personally, I think this is a bold step for Microsoft to be hiring a famous comedian and writer. Everybody seems to love Seinfeld. His wit and humor are the stuff that people can easily relate to because it really happens in real life!
I like this idea to work because for me, Vista isn’t really all that bad. The negative press that it got was well…justified at that time, but after the release of SP1, most of what made Vista fail (poor drivers and incompatibility issues) were already fixed. One interesting campaign for explaining Vista’s “poor image” can be seen in the Mojave Experiment.
I’m using Windows XP right now, on my next reformat, I will move to Vista.
Goodluck Jerry! (you’re now $10 million richer!)
