I actually find the criticism of this video to be unfounded.

We are not the target for this video. The target is the Windows Fan Boys (and girls, and older ladies) that will organize a Windows 7 launch party.


Actually I've found that sometimes the criticism is worst than the actual video.

Comments like "Who believes that a "brother" and an Old lady can be at the same party" as if those "parties" should be organized within racial or age group boundaries.

So if the target audience does not mind. Why should I? I can only laugh.

The video has good points (that even we could use when showing Linux), such as; Run through the "activities" ahead of time so there are no surprises while you are "showing off"

I hope they were paid well.

The camera guys need a healthy dose of "Use a f'ing tripod and get your
hand off the zoom button!"

Although it almost looked like they did use a tripod and were *trying*
for the shakey-cam effect... which is even worse, but somehow doesn't
surprise me for Microsoft.
