[Get a Mac Parody video] Mac vs PC vs Linux vs MikeOS

Postby 12padams » Tue May 28, 2013 9:39 pm

Remember those Mac vs PC ads from 2006-2009? Here's a collection of them if you don't remember:

Anyway I have made a parody of those ads including both mikeOS and Linux. Just check out this "ad" and don't forget to look at the bloopers because they are really funny ;)

I made a parody ad before the one above but it's not as good. You can check it out here:

Hehe, I think you've summed up the spirit of MikeOS really well there :-)

Hmm, I'd already watched the full review of MikeOS (and you get the parody ad at the beginning of that). It seems that there's all sorts of "fun" stuff in MikeOS these days that didn't used to be there. :lol:

Glad you guys like the parody ;)

Edit: wow just realised you were the guy who created MikeOS... I never thought you would see this video but am sooooo glad you did ;)

Please note we didn't mean to insult this os. If you look at the "Mum tries out MikeOS 4.4" video you will see that she speaks positivity about it as a learning tool.

Heyyyy, you're the fella who makes those "My Mum trying [OSes]" videos. I love those.

Your family seems awesome.

The 'Mum tries...' video's are fantastic, great work! Must be valuable to the developers of the OS as well.
