Shakedown 2.0?

This is my second test blog where you'll find news and opinions on the latest happenings surrounding the internet, technology, entertainment, et. al.
Why the name? "Shakedown" is a period of testing or trial journey undergone by a ship, plane or other craft before declared operational. 2.0 simply because it's my second trial blog [see the first blog here]

Microsoft on Google's territory to promote Vista & Live

Would you believe it? Just saw on TechCrunch that Microsoft has taken its marketing push for Windows Vista and Windows Live into enemy territory by offering short demonstration videos on Google's YouTube.

Currently the WindowsVistaAndLive channel has 9 clips uploaded showing different features of Vista and Live which users can take advantage of - like online photo sharing, video calling, management of email accounts etc. This just shows that even Microsoft acknowledges the powerful market position of YouTube on the internet.

MS has even left comments open on all videos so viewers can share their reactions, most comments i've read so far are negative posts like:

"Vista sucks hard. Get a mac if you want to get more done without it crashing on you."
"Fix Vista already MS!! Or better yet, make XP look sexier- now that would be a fix."
" i like how vista tried to look all pretty like OSX, but they forgot to actually make it work well first"
" quick TABS in explorer? geee i wish safari had that."
"Vista is just too buggy right now until they fix all the major problems. I'm not an apple fanboy...I'm just saying Vista isn't ready yet and XP SP3 is perfectly fine. Why change something that isn't broken?"

There are also positive comments.. like.. uhmm.. wait, i just saw one right here.. uhmm.. ehrr.. okay.. well, yeah there are also positive comments.
