TWiT 154 and MS marketing

On TWiT 154 the guys focused on how bad the mojave experiment is on changing the common (correct) idea Windows Vista is a pille of dung. They comment the whole thing is centered on how people think Vista is bad and instead of “wow, it’s actually good”.

That reminded me of a Microsoft campaign for some type of managed service or suport service where an office worker works into the wee hours of the night geting consistently more disgruntled at his computer until right at the end when he’s trying to save or print the computer crashes and he loses everything. So the main idea of the campaign is “Microsoft software is unreliable crap that will screw you at the worst of times but if you throw more money at Microsoft they promise they’ll come in and make slightly less unreliable”.

I’m sold!!!
