Microsoft Ad Urges Indians Not to be Scared of Windows 8

Maximum PC: "The launch of Windows 8 was accompanied by a massive ad campaign.The TV ads sweeping the globe as part of this campaign, the cost of which one report pegged at somewhere between $1.5 billion and 1.8 billion, have one thing in common, in that they all have music from up-and-coming bands at their heart. But Microsoft’s “You and Me Together” Indian TV spot is not merely an amalgam of peppy music, Live Tiles, and, well, people. It stands out for being surprisingly honest about the biggest problem facing Windows 8: consumer skepticism." (Microsoft, Software, Windows 8)

Oh, I thought it was the other way around where we were scared of the Indians. (Highest rated country for online scams).

This begs the question, exactly which OSes are Indians afraid of?

While I definitely see improvement in Windows 8 or Windows 7, I'll stick with my as of yet virus free MacBook Pro. OSX is the most stable and problem-free OS I've used. Though, I can't speak on Ubuntu or Linux, as I've never tried those.

MS is definitely improving though. I like the way they're unifying their platforms with all Windows 8 OS's on all their devices.
