Talking Both Linux Switch Commercials Up


The second one went faster. Now if I can just find a Tux costume somewhere we can really have some fun.

Downloading them at the moment.

Anyone else think it's ironic that a Linux switch commercial is in .wmv?

Think about the target audience, it makes more sense. More than half the visitors are using Win98 or XP.

And the irony is kind of funny (and it's also the only server I have right now).

If these were going to be produced for a brand like Mandrake or RedHat, then you'd want to stream them off a different server. Real would love the plug.

That's a good idea. You think they'd really be interested?

I'm really surprised at the response. Hundreds of hits in just the last few hours. Majority are Windoze users, but it's close to half and half.

I think that really says something about the Linux community. The impression it leaves me is that no one has a real good grip on how big it is. And it also would seem to indicate there's a lot of interest in Linux right now. Some of the feedback I'm getting also points to a lot of displeasure with M$. That runs a continuum from annoyance to outright hatred. No surprise to anyone here, I'm sure.

Definitely it's a nicer community. You'd rarely get the kind of help and encouragement on a Windows board you find here.

Still looking for a Tux costume.

I liked what I saw but for some strange reason I could hear it through media player using crossover-- I am thinking of buying it but I want the sound to work before I do though.

Anyway whenI get a chance I will plip on my Vendow$ and view it there.
I am having to much fun in Linux now to change it over now.

I watched it again cause it rocks. You should make a slew of them, I really like em. I bet TechTV would play em, that was a good suggestion!

Cool
