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.

This would be a good ad for the FSF, but not Linux imho - not everything that's a part of your typical Linux distribution is what I'd consider free. Certainly, not the type of freedom that the advert implies.

It's an OK ad, but a bit bland imho. It doesn't really grab the attention, and most ordinary non techie viewers would probably go 'so what'.
