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.

Thanks

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

You can 'twang' the bands (and pretend it is a guitar) to make musical sounds.
