"Just like negative political campaign advertising and
grassroots door to door stomping, it often leaves a bad taste in

in one platform direction or another. The bottom line is that when
consumers are coming in to buy a computer in a retail store, they
usually have a pretty good idea of what they are going to buy in
the first place, at least platform wise."
