I have to admit, I love the Mac vs. PC ads from Apple. Maybe it's my awkward crush on Apple Guy Justin Long, maybe it has something to do with all the funny remakes or maybe it's just clever advertising. The most recent web installment in the series features PC Guy (actor John Hodgman) showing Apple Guy a defective "Don't Give Up On Vista" sign. As a Mac girl I can't really speak for Vista because I've only used it a handful of times, but I have gotten less than favorable reviews from all my PC geek friends. What's your take?

Bill Gates has shocked the entire industry by using some unusual vocabulary to describe his excitement for the Microsoft Vista Operating System, which comes out today. "This 'Wow' thing is a great way of describing what we've got here," Microsoft's chairman told The Associated Press on Monday as the software maker began a slate of splashy events in New York. "There are chances for wows all over the product."
Looks like Jimmy Kimmel, who hung out at the Windows Vista Lounge with Eva Longoria, Molly Sims and DJ AM last week, has already gotten a chance to take the system for a spin. Now available to the public, Vista retails for $100 to $400, depending on the version and whether the user is upgrading from Windows XP. As a mac user I'm not as thrilled as some for the new OS, but I am excited by the idea of running it on my mac and seeing what the fuss is all about. So, who is running out and buying Vista right away?
Windows' new operating system, Vista, which is the first new operating system from Microsoft Corp. in five years, is being released today and despite controversy over whether or not certain elements of the system were "borrowed" from Mac OSX, there will be plenty of folks upgrading to the new system, which comes with moderate to good reviews. Microsoft boasts that it has managed to tighten security, increase parental controls, make media - from photos to videos to songs to cable television - easier to use and share, and linked everything even more tightly to the Internet, says the SF Chronicle. Here's a fun look at what Bill Gates likes about the new system.

Microsoft's new operating system Vista won't be available to consumers until Jan. 30, but celebrities like Eva Longoria, Molly Sims and Maria Menounos showed up to show their support and test out the goods. Fergie's fella Josh Duhamel, DJ AM and William H. Macy showed there are still a few male geeks out there - although I always figured Macy to be a Mac man.
