Apple ads: Switch to a Mac instead of Microsoft Windows 7

Apple launched three television ads to squash the publicity bump for Windows 7.

One warns users that Vista did not live up to the launch hype. The other two encourage users to switch to a Mac instead of upgrading to Windows 7.

Here are the ads below, and in unrelated Apple-Microsoft news check out this TechCrunch posting, which points to a MacBook on the screen behind Chief Executive Steve Ballmer on the “Today Show” Thursday. Incidentally, there are users who buy Mac hardware and run Windows on them, but this could be an instance of some Photoshopping work combining a photo with the Windows 7 logo.

Let the Apple-Microsoft flame wars begin in the comments. No personal attacks or you’ll be blocked. Extra points for wittiness, though.
