being a seinfeld series fan i found it a tad strange that he would sell out and do an add for microsoft... he always had the latest apple computer on his desk during each new series. well... at least as i remember it

Uh ? I don't pretend to know more then anyone else here but is it me .........or am I the only one that thinks paying Seinfeld $10 million for that is NOT going to improve Vista Sales !! Holy Crap , can't MS find other ways to spend there money and improve there OS ? How about hiring more talented programmers or MORE programmers in general to streamline and cleanup there OS ? *shakes head * Im just in AWE at this comercial . Im totaly lost here as how on this earth it has any benefits at ALL for Vista.

That's brutal. Seinfeld's not bad... but Bill needs some serious acting lessons.
