Linux The advertisement wars are really heating up, with Microsoft going on the full assault against Apple with several TV advertisements, after Apple had been pounding the Redmond company with its "I'm a PC" campaign. Just as Microsoft published the third Laptop Hunters commercial, the Linux Foundation announced the winner of the "We're Linux" contest.

Next time that Vista tells me it will take four hours to unzip a 28MB file that Linux and MacOSX can both unzip in minutes (on the same hardware) I will certainly be comforted by Microsofts adds that tell me how much more powerful Windows is.
Some of the sluggish behaviour of Windows on very powerful hardware is almost incomprehensible to me.
Why not put that kind of thing in an Advert?
The winning Linux freedom advert is just too abstract.
