It's very common for Microsoft to use Macs in their advertisments. I don't know if its Microsoft themselves, or their advertising agency.

Yes it is very common, either Microsoft is jealous that no PC manufacturer is able to produce Quality products. Or the agencies most of them are using Adobe products, and since those products were firstly develloped for the Mac OS platform.

I think you're right about the advertising agency being responsible. In 2004 Microsoft's website had a nice picture of a server room allegedly running a Microsoft back-office solution. The problem was that all the machines were IBM RS/6000s which are PowerPC based and quite incapable of running any version of Windows without a lot of emulation. Even the console was clearly running an AIX X session! :)
