Microsoft Calls Out VMware in this Commercial Video

We've all watched the Apple vs. PC commercials over and over again where Apple calls out Microsoft by name to challenge them for the operating system market (and PC market) - Apple vs. Microsoft.  Mac vs. PC.  Mac OS X vs Windows.  We got it, right?  Big boy in a suit who is a nerd or goofball on one side, and the young, hip Apple user on the other side.

Well, Microsoft may be taking a page out of that book, just a bit.  Check out this video commercial where Microsoft calls out VMware by name, and tries to use a young, hip, casually dressed guy to sell you on Microsoft's virtualization technology over VMware's.  Now if they just throw in a pudgy suit wearing VMware guy... well, just take a look.  Notice the "tighten your belt" reference. 

This video continues Microsoft's "we're cheaper than VMware" mantra.
