    Ed Bott: I just noticed this teaser on Microsoftв??s home page:

    If this is going to be the overall message of Microsoftв??s much-vaunted new $300 million ad campaign, it might be money well spent. According to the folks at LiveSide, the first ads in the new campaign were previewed at Microsoftв??s employees-only Global Exchange conference last week to rave reviews. As Tim Anderson astutely noted the other day, в??Vista is now actually better than its reputation. Thatв??s a marketing issue.в?? Microsoftв??s biggest challenge is to get would-be customers to set aside whatever preconceptions they have and listen to its pitch for Vista. Aligning its most vocal Vista critics with the Flat Earth Society is a clever way to get peopleв??s attention.
