If you follow the IT ads development in a recent year, you must be know an ads called “Get a Mac” from Apple Computer and some Microsoft Ads performed by Bill Gates and Seinfeld (I must be honest to tell that both of their performance is pretty sucks, I can’t really got the points ). But there’s one of the biggest Operating System on earth still not started their campaign – Linux…
Even Linux Foundation will be glad to start a campaign like that, but that marketing strategy is not their type(or either fit with their budget). And the most important part is Linux is not a commercial Operating System, but a product that founded from a collaboration from a lot of people. But, seemed Linux Foundation have another marketing plan to do. They will sponsoring a competition that create a Linux Video’s. The video’s must showing a Linux meaning and also encourage people to try Linux as well.
