IBM/Linux commercial

Has anyone seen this IBM/Linux ad? It's a video.

http://www-3.ibm.com/e-business/doc/...tml?P_Site=S94

It's been up for quite a while now; it's a good description of Linux in general. Reminds me of discussions in LQ: the older & more experienced, helping out the 'younger' ones eager to learn.

Seen it, been around for months along with several threads on it already that have been moved to General where this one will be moved since this is more suitable in the General forum.

Regards.

I installed all the plugins and still can't watch it.
Kind of ironic, I can't watch a linux commercial because I use linux.

I found a site with a downloadable .mpg

heh heh. i agree. plugin checks are annoying at best. ironic that this ibm/linux commercial didn't take into account linux users running either the mplayer mozilla or xine-mozilla plugin. watching trailers at apple.com posed no problem...

Very good linux commercial. It portrays linux's openness and how it is a great new technology ready to grow.

Can we choose different words to describe your question? I really find it unecessary to use such words on an open forum that could easily offend others. Thanks.

u should bear it in mind that in a whole heap of places, this is not considered swearing or bad language and that most people who say it dont even know that it is swearing by others.
god knows how much trouble i got in when i lived in the states

That's why I'm making them aware. Me personally, I don't care really, I'm just doing my part to keep the forums clean.
