Fool Video: Does Microsoft Plus Seinfeld Equal Apple?

Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT  ) is launching a new ad campaign featuring founder Bill Gates and comedian Jerry Seinfeld. Will the dynamic duo help Microsoft take a bite out of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL  ) ? Will Seinfeld's funny business boost business for PC makers like Dell (Nasdaq: DELL  ) and Hewlett-Packard (Nasdaq: HPQ  ) ? In this installment of "Fool Video," I ask Motley Fool senior analyst Seth Jayson for his take.

 

Neither Seth nor Mac owns any of the stocks discussed. Dell and Microsoft are Inside Value selections. Apple is a Stock Advisor recommendation. Pick up one of the Fool's newsletters free for 30 days. The Motley Fool has a disclosure policy.

    VIsta is not a 'darn good operating system'. Most corporations choose not to upgrade as they see little values as compare to moving up from vista. Home users find it confusing and requires new hardware to use all the flash eye candy features. Many of the Vista features are copied from Apple OS.

    I think it's not just the hardware but the software also that's simpler and more intuitive (to the new users).
