There's so much going on in this new Windows 7 ad that I'm still haven't decided how I feel about it yet. Whimsical animation! Avatar played with PC Na'vi! A Mac in desperate need of ginger ale! Actually, it's great.

There's something just wonderfully weird about this Microsoft spot. Beyond touting Windows 7 Blu-ray compatibility—which, hey, you could download an HD movie from iTunes—it shows off a warmth that sometimes, just sometimes, Microsoft has a hard time conveying.
