"It's been almost two years since Microsoft's laughable, misleading and creatively bereft "I'm A PC" ads, and you'd think they'd have learned something about appearing too defensive... but no! Right in time for the annual "Back to School" laptop sales wars, Microsoft has launched an official PC vs. Mac section on their website."
Actually, no. Another effort in the "our tool to get something done is better than your tool to get something done" campaign. Aimed at the back-to-school crowd, these pages are filled with interesting factoids - I compare it to a (hypothetical?) battle between Stanley and Craftsman to sell hammers. A PC is simply a tool - use whatever you need, to accomplish what you need to do. Bottom line is that if you need something that only runs on a Mac, buy a Mac. If you need something that runs only in Windows, buy a Windows PC (or use BootCamp or any of a number of virtualization tools). And if Linux or XYZ works, use it! Remember - these are *all* (PCs) "Personal Computers."
