New Apple ads are out, and rather than telling us anything about Apple or Mac OS they poke fun at Microsoft’s latest ad campaign. It doesn’t matter whether you like Vista or hate Vista, the fact that the name is tarnished is now inescapable. If Microsoft’s Mojave Experiment proved anything, it was how toxic the “V” word had become. And Microsoft knows this, hence the focus on the word “Windows” in the latest series of ads, and the decision to name the next version of the OS Windows 7.
Here, take a look:

“V” Word - This ad points out to viewers how Microsoft is shying away from the word “Vista.”
