PC v/s Mac website launched By Microsoft

Apple and Microsoft the 2 biggies in the Software industry and well known arch rivals are always up to something to show  how and why they are best in the business. Earlier you had the ‘I’m a Mac – I’m a PC ads” campaign. Then Microsoft started off with building on the pride factor with the “I am a PC” ads.

Apple couldn’t resist hitting back  with their own “Get a Mac” advertisements. They even launched a Why you’ll love a Mac website.

And now recently Microsoft launched a similar website “PC v/s Mac”, first spotted by IThinkDiff, which compares the Windows 7 operating system with the Mac OS X. The site not only compares each and every aspect of the Windows 7 environment with the Mac OS X, but also points out the drawbacks in the Apple OS.

Microsoft has, as expected avoided pointing out the positive features that a Mac OS X may have over Windows 7, and instead only targeted its weaknesses. Apart from the comparison they also have a feature which allows the visitors to build their own PC.

Some of the sections include:

  • Having Fun: Macs Might Spoil Your Fun
  • Simplicity: Macs Can Take Time To Learn
  • Working Hard: Macs Don’t Work As Well At Work Or At School
  • Sharing: Macs Don’t Like To Share
  • Compatibility: Macs Might Not Like Your PC Stuff
  • Choice: Macs Don’t Let You Choose

Check out PC vs Mac !

It would be interesting to see how Apple reacts to this!
