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.

They forgot to mention that they were made with a Mac.

Check out the comments of the #1 Runner Up - he uses After Effects and Final Cut Pro and Pixelmator. I thought it was funny too.

I liked the #1 Runner Up the best, but it was a little too moody and overblown for Linux. Like the opening to a new Matrix tv series or something. It's just Linux after all, not that great in the scheme of things.

Still, some good stylist effects in that piece.
