Microsoft's latest ad takes swipe at competition, says they have more Windows licenses sold than Android, iOS and OS X combined

Microsoft's latest ad seems to try too hard to tell people they're better than the others

| Operating Systems News | Posted: Dec 11, 2012 9:31 am

Another week, another ad from Microsoft trying to push their latest operating systems. The latest ad is titled "Windows 8: Introducing a New World of Apps", which goes for two minutes and tries to show off the fact at just how powerful their new OS is, and can be for the future, all while swiping their claws at Apple and Google.

 

 

There are some quotes MS use within the ad, such as "A worldwide app store with over 1 billion potential users!". Yes, Microsoft, welcome to all the other app stores. Also, "Over the last 2 years, more Windows licenses have been sold than Android, iOS and Macs combined". Again, a great statement - but MS are hurting compared to Google and Apple's complete stranglehold on the mobile market right now.

 

The video seems suited to developers, so much so that if they weren't already coding for Windows, they should because there's endless possibilities with the platform.

 

Windows tablets can be capable of a lot, and the video does show off some cool stuff that Windows on tablets can do - but is it enough to move you from your iPad or Android-based tablet? For me, not yet.
