What do Microsoft and ancient Greek scholar Eratosthenes of Cyrene have in common?

Both have educated the masses on the true shape of the earth.

The Web site Adrants,which comments on advertising campaigns, has posted commentary on aMicrosoft ad reminding Vista haters that at one point, everyone thoughtthe earth was flat.

As Eratosthenes pointed out in his famous experiment (of which oneper cent of the population may be aware), this is clearly not true.

So, if you are still stuck on XP, Microsoft is urging you to moveforward, get real and face the reality that the earth is round.
