    "I'm Linux" Competition/Contest

    bit-tech.net | "I'm Linux" ad competition launched

    The "I'm Linux" Video Contest | The Linux Foundation Video Site

    If you've been alive and aware of mass media over the last twelve months, you've probably seen television commercials from Apple and Microsoft touting their operating system. From Apple's ubiquitous "I'm a Mac" to Jerry Seinfeld to Microsoft's "I'm a PC" retort, operating system commercials have been flooding the airways. Except one OS has been notably absent Linux.

    While the Linux Foundation would love to spend millions promoting Linux on TV, it's simply not our style (or in our budget). Even more importantly, Linux isn't a top-down, commercially controlled operating system. It's a grassroots product of mass collaboration. That's why we're sponsoring a community contest to create a Linux video that showcases just what Linux means to those who use it, and hopefully inspires many to try it.

    The winner will receive a free trip to Tokyo, Japan to participate in the Linux Foundation Japan Linux Symposium in October 2009. The winning video will also be unveiled at the Linux Foundation's Collaboration Summit in San Francisco on April 8, 2009.
    Well, which one of you (dope, teck, etc) is going to rent a tux and dance around like a mad man for this contest?!?

    I'm getting warmed up, nerds!




    I hope you guys know I'm kidding, I thought i'd make it more clear - I can't use anything Linux more complicated than ubuntu, and even then I can't get my audio to work.
