I've noticed some new MS television ads in the past few days. I believe
they are text with neither pictures nor voice (read: low budget),
although I've only caught snippets of a couple of them. They have a
stark black-and-white motif. They are directed at businesses, which is
somewhat unusual for TV where I am. The timing (during the economic
downturn) makes me think they are defending against encroachment by
Linux in business IT.
