It looks like one of the machines in their server farm still has the original non-multicultural image. LOL

Man, I can't tell which one was the original. Both versions look like they could have been Photochopped.

I'm surprised it took them so long to fix it.

For those that missed it. Here's the bad photoshopped (mspaint?) version on the Microsoft US vs. Polish site.  They should have turned that mac into a netbook or something.

It's weird. It looks like the black dude has a more natural head position than the white dude, making the bottom one look more like the altered one. But if you look closely at the top of black dude's head, the transition from hair to window looks rather sharp and more like it's the altered one. OTOH, that entire background could have been Photoshopped in. It was probably a solid white wall originally.
