Just as Microsoft published the third Laptop Hunters commercial, the Linux Foundation announced the winner of the "We're Linux" contest.

The really funny part - every time I go to the local Mac shop, it is a shop full of people like that; heck, I look like that with my laptop. I guess there are some truths in the stereotype of the average Mac user ;)
