Windows 7 'I'm a PC' man quits Microsoft

'I'm a PC and I'm pissing off'

The essential guide to IT transformation

Microsoft’s “I’m a PC” bloke is reportedly leaving the software maker.

According to an email, seen by SeattlePI.com, Sean Siler has quit the company for personal reasons, after five years of service.

“I have a lot of memories from my time at Microsoft, but the ‘I'm a PC’ commercial is the highlight. I really feel proud that I was able to be a visible part of the company's fight against Apple,” he wrote.

Today is Siler’s last day at Microsoft. He “starred” in a number of the company’s ads to sell its Windows 7 operating system.

The toe-curling “I’m a PC” slogan was a response to Apple’s “Get a Mac” ad campaign.

Siler isn’t just a telly ad star; he has most recently been the IPv6 program manager at Microsoft. ®
