San Francisco Bills IBM for Linux Love Notes

PC World reports that IBM has reached a settlement with the city of San Francisco for $120,000 in damages to pay for the cleanup of its Linux graffiti campaign in the city. Our Take: Maybe these “Peace, Love and Linux” ads are a bit weird, but I just love this huge “IBM DB2 Outperforms Oracle” ad just right in front of Oracle’s office buildings, viewable from the highway, near my house. This sort of marketing competition between IBM and Oracle is at least… funny.
