Microsoft’s First Windows 8 Ad is a Hit

While Microsoft has already been advertising its own Surface tablet, they posted the above video today which depicts the first Windows 8 advertisement created by the company.

Frankly, it’s an interesting commercial which seems to highlight the multiple form factors Windows 8 will be available in across devices and manufacturers. The ad is colorful, and definitely presents the idea that this isn’t the Windows many knew and hated – for better or for worse, this is “Windows reimagined.” It remains to be seen whether or not Microsoft can teach the world to use its new Metro interface, and if Microsoft can convince enough developers to make applications for the Metro landscape instead of the desktop, but it seems as if they’re trying.

If¬†advertisements¬†like these are any hint, they’re definitely doing something right.
