Linux Sick of Apple and Microsoft flaunting themselves about constantly with their "I'm a Mac/I'm a PC" advertisements? Had a vision for the first Linux commercial you've been wanting to put into place? The Linux Foundation is calling you. Not literally, of course. Beginning January 26th, 2009, the Foundation will be accepting 60-second video offerings from budding directors worldwide to begin their own "I'm Linux" advertising campaign. The winner takes all with "a flight to Narita in Japan from the airport closest to your home plus three nights at a hotel in order for the winner to attend the Linux Foundation Japan's symposium in October next year." Start those rusty creative gears turning-- it's certain that plenty will enter, and only one will win.

Because of delays at Redmond?

What? The onslaught of "I switched to Ubuntu long enough to write this post" blogs that popped up everywhere around Vista's release time wasn't enough to sway people?

You've got to be kidding me!

Ah well, we'll just have to rely on good old linux desktop innovation...oh wait never mind.

I guess there's always the hundreds of compiz desktop vids on youtube to show just how, umm, "extreme" linux can be. Or how about the thousands of in depth tutorials and how-to's for applications like Quanta+ and other desktop alternatives that show exactly what a Linux or *BSD desktop is really capable of in productivity...oh yeah, those don't exist either.

Ah well, have fun. I have an evolving world of software to go play with elsewhere ;)
