NEWS: Microsoft Windows “Mojave” demonstrated

UPDATE 7/26/08: 
It looks like we’ve going to post the results here at http://www.mojaveexperiment.com/.

ORIGINAL POST:
ILoveMS There’s been some buzz recently about Windows "Mojave":

Microsoft last week traveled to San Francisco, rounding up Windows XP users who had negative impressions of Vista. The subjects were put on video, asked about their Vista impressions, and then shown a "new" operating system, code-named Mojave. More than 90 percent gave positive feedback on what they saw.

Then they were told that "Mojave" was actually Windows Vista.

That’s just ROFLtastic – especially in this day and age where Internet news seems to be very rarely researched, checked, and qualified.  Everyone knows that negative press sells more than positive press does but it’s impact is made doubly so with the advent of the Internet being that apparently it’s more fun for people to pile onto a negative story and let it snowball, going from "Windows Vista lacks drivers," to "M$ Vista is for l4merz – it lost my homework, stole my allowance, & kills babies!!!LOL"

You can just imagine these folks going into the room goin’, "I hate Vista!  Hateithateithateithateit!  It’s just bad!  Because that’s what I read on the Intenret.  And the kid down the street told me so."  Then the bomb drops on them and they go:  "Uh… erm… oh wow."
