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.

No ads needed

Why would "Linux" need any ads?
Those who know about it don't need it at all.
And those who don't know need an ad for "Gnome" or "KDE" or "Ubuntu" or "Mandriva" (or LyX, for that matter ;-) ) rather than "Linux".

It may have entertainment value, obviously. :-)
The penguin ad was the best, at least they didn't take themselves seriously.
