Microsoft Get The Facts IE8

So Microsoft have put together a new "Get The Facts" campaign this time for IE8. When I read this I was hoping for none of the marketing that featured in previous "Get The Facts" campaigns.

This article over at Webmonkey sums the claims up rather well so I will say no more.

However, two thoughts spring to mind. The first being that like it or not most people will use it if it comes with their new hardware. These people don't really care about the facts and if they don't know or care enough about other browsers then Microsoft are preaching to the converted. People that do care won't believe what Microsoft's claims and so the whole campaign is a waste.

The other thought is that perhaps if Microsoft stopped these campaigns and promoted on the truth they would get more respect.
