Microsoft Begins Its Fight Against Macs

Microsoft Begins Its Fight Against Macs

Posted July 29, 2008 at 8:09pm by iClarified
Microsoft has begun its fight against Mac popularity with the Mojave Experiment.

The Mojave Experiment attempts to find out what people think of Windows Vista when they don't know its Windows Vista. Microsoft disguised Windows Vista as "Mojave" the next Microsoft OS and secretly recorded peoples reactions to the "new" OS.

Once their reactions had been recorded the participants were then told that they were actually using Vista.


According to Microsoft, over 90 percent of these users came out with a complete changed, positive outlook on the operating system.

this was the funniest SH*T i have ever seen.... they pack the room full of noobs, that dont know anything about computers, and show them the fastest computers they could build, with nothing on it except for VISTA. haha. and all of the ppl, on top of being noobs, have never used vista before. they should have had ppl, that thought it sucked that had it, and "showed" them how to stich photos.....haha they should have had some devs in their explaining why they didnt like the os....from a dev standpoint.... imean they should have at least had a gamer interviewed.....

I never liked vista! Xp is far more stable in my opinion! I am a Mac user! They only think microsoft should fix is to lower the requirements it needs to run! While mac os only needs 512mb to run, vista needs minimum 1gb!!! i rest my case.

Hey look at that::: its reallly a µsoft EXPERIMENT: that means, they try to get acceptance with the almost same "short" clip with the final point: vista is fine.. What I mean is: check the last picture, if apple tilt this kind of picture, it will zoom and follow the perspective...

They use Flash instead of Silverlight because the Flash platform has the penetration that Silverlight doesn't (and probably won't) and since a lot of people would just close the page once presented with the "install Silverlight" button it means their marketing would fail at the first hurdle. However, Flash Player 9.0 is now present on > 95% of all personal computers.

Interesting how they use Adobe Flash for the rich elements on the Mojave site. What happened to Silverlight?
