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.

Now, about that runner up. Did anyone else get a sinister feeling about it? Hell, by the end of it I thought it was going to say "We are Legion". Am I alone in this?


Maybe not "We are Legion". What I got from it was a virus splitting and multiplying. No, I am not saying Linux is a virus folks, I use it. That is the impression it gave me though.

Got the same bad impression too. I liked the winner though. As others have said, this would have to be the first in a series of ads.

BTW, here is a link to the LinuxFoundation youtube channel (first runner up):
