Even though plenty of sources close to the Redmond campus are suggesting that Windows 8 is slowly becoming a disappointing product, Microsoft continues its advertising efforts for the new operating system.
The company has recently released two new advertisements that bring a couple of Windows 8 features in the spotlight, including the heavily promoted Picture Password.
If we are to trust the rumors, Microsoft has prepared approximately $1.5 billion (€1.3 billion) for the so-called Windows 8 marketing blitz in both the United States and the rest of the world.
Still, Microsoft chooses to remain tight-lipped on Windows 8 sales, but CEO Steve Ballmer initially hinted that the company had managed to sell approximately 40 million copies of the operating system in just a single month.
Watch the two new ads and tell us what you think in the comment box after the jump.
You know what I think,when Steve Ballmer 'hints' at sales of 40 million on W8,I think,or,should I say, 'hint',that,he is telling ,'porkies'?
Let me say this,as a PC user from the very beginning of home use PC's,had W8 been a product to look forward to,I would have been the first in the queue to buy,as it is,I will not even be the last in the queue,because,I already have have W8-WITHOUT the junk,it's called, W7.

This product has nearly destroyed my PC...Every function I relied on in the past is GONE...It has obliterated my MS Office Suite, rendered my Lexmark multipurpose printer/scanner/fax completely useless. Microsoft has conveniently included, in it's license agreement, a ban on any class action lawsuit against them regarding this piece of cr*p product.... Thanks a lot Microsoft...obviously you knew before the release that you had a garbage product here...
