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.

People will eat it up

The problem is that people nowadays are so reliant on "the news" and TV for their information that they see an ad like this and simply eat it up hook line and sinker. People believe everything they see hear and read regardless of whether or not the source of the information is dubious. "Mommy, we can't buy an iMac because the man on TV said it was like a toy!" "Oh, okay honey, we'll get you a far superior Vista PC instead."
