Please don't get me wrong ... I appreciate what Apple does, and I agree with Slone:
Apple's failure is not its product. Apple's failure is the inability to market their products properly.
The UK ad and the test results are perfect examples. In some circles, the Mac crowd is already viewed as being "too proud" of their chosen tool, especially considering the alternatives, when one is willing to go the extra mile (dollars for SGI and SUN or education for Linux ... not counting the Red Hat used in the genome test ... it's not the only Linux out there, and certainly not the most recent). Ads like the UK one and stretching the comparison of Apples and oranges in an attempt to "prove" the superiority of the Mac product only reinforce that view.
