The folks at Microsoft must psyched at the thought of next week's Vista launch, but apparently some of them are a little too giddy in the head for their own good. It appears some MS reps from Norway went on air and demoed Vista on an iMac—not once acknowledging the fact that they were using a Mac. We had our suspicions that Bootcamp would let you run Vista on a Mac, but we thought MS would've wanted to use, y'know, a PC to show off their new OS. Hit the image for a look at the video.

UPDATE: Turns out it wasn't Microsoft's decision to demo Vista with a Mac, but instead a Mac was used because it was the only computer around that had the OS installed (which is still a little ironic). Nevertheless, the Mac belongs to VG and not Microsoft.

DISCUSSION

iMac: What the hell, who are you?

Vista: Oh, hello. I'm Vista.

iMac: How the hell did you get in me?

Vista: (pointing)Oh, your friend let me in, he said it was cool.

BootCamp: What up?

iMac: Asshole!

BootCamp: Huh?

iMac: What happened to OSX?

Vista: Os-Who?

iMac: My Boyfriend, OSX, the Tiger?

Vista: Oh, I saw him on the way in here. I tried to say Hello, but he seemed busy talking to that chick, Cincgular. I wasnt gonna tell you about it, but Bootcamp convinced me that you deserved to know.

iMac: That JERK!

Vista: Yeah, what a douche. Can I buy you a drink? (wink)
