    I just saw the Windows "I'm a PC" ad. On the final screen it says "Windows - life without walls." Just what does that mean? A window is placed IN a wall. A window in itself is meaningless without a wall. I would like to slap whoever thought up this add with a window though....

    lol...They're trying to say that the possibilities with Windows are endless...but coming from a virtual monopoly, it's an oxymoron.

    I thought the ads were rather good. You're not really supposed to look that into it.

    I don't think "windows" refers to the literal interpretation of a glass pane. It refers to the the name of the operating system.

    I know that it wasn't literal. I was only trying to say that the ad makes a poor attempt at...irony(?) or just whatever it was attempting.

    Anyway I don't know. My post made more sense to me when I first posted it. Now... I'm not sure...

    If we're to look at it literally then i'd say that windows lead to the outside, thus a life without walls. Windows is your pass to the rest of the world.

    I think you had good intentions when writing this, but after re-reading the post, you came to your senses.
