"The Linux Foundation — the Oregon-based non-profit
responsible for promoting Linux and keeping developer-in-chief
Linus Torvalds off the dole -- is about to launch a contest aimed
at filling the Linux gap left in the "I'm a Mac/I'm a PC"
commercials, and as one might expect, have set out a competition
that highlights the collaborative nature of the Linux community.
The contest is open-entry, and invites contestants to submit
user-created video that "showcases just what Linux means to those
who use it, and hopefully inspires many to try it." Though the
Apple/Microsoft commercials are certainly the inspiration for the
contest, submissions are not required to follow the established
"I'm a Mac/I'm a PC" format -- indeed, one need not reference the
"other" operating systems at all."
