The first two ads, while a little bit funny, do nothing to make people want Windows.
The third ad, while not funny at all, still does nothing to make people want Windows.
The Apple ads were funny, and pointed out the negatives of the competition. Microsoft's too full of themselves to admit there *is* competition, so I can't really see them making a really successful advertisement at this point in time.
The only other ads they have running right now is the MohaveExperiment one - which depicts a bunch of people shocked to see how pretty Vista is. Presumably, the people hadn't seen Vista before because it didn't work with their hardware, or they've been on Jury duty for the last couple of years.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Surely they could come up with something more interesting than these promos!Just nothing to them at all!Not that I got anything else to do but Im sorry I spent my time watching them!
All that money and thats the best they can come up with
I have to say that my non techie co workers have been talking about the seinfeld ads. If they are getting people talking about anything other than I heard Vista is no good then thats a good thing.
I would actually watch a feature length film of those two guys hanging out. But, humanizing Bill Gates by having him do mundane stuff with a more beloved multi-millionaire doesn't change my opinion on operating systems one way or the other.
Anyone serious about choosing an OS, not just using whatever comes on the cheapest machine they can buy, is unlikely to be affected even slightly by the underlying intent of the ads.
I there are people who are hearing all these funny mac ads and hearing bad stuff about vista, but still know very little. It might not change there minds, but it gets them off the topic of how bad Vista is.
I would have liked to have seen the brainstorming session behind that one:
Seinfeld: "I've got an idea!: Commercials about.... nothing!"
