There was recently a contest for making Linux commercials, and the
Linux-PC (Mac clone) idea was big. I just had a conversation with a
Windows power user who spend _four_days_ reinstalling his OS and
applications. Did you know that Windows won't open MS Office files out
of the box, but that Ubuntu does? I think that this type of ad would
be great:

L: Hi, PC, what are you doing?

W: I just installed my OS. Now I'm buying antivirus, an office suite,
and a photo editing application. I love this hobby, I can spend all
week setting up my OS.

L: Really? I have better hobbies, like friends. I prefer an OS that
lets me open PDF and DOC files right out of the box. You really cannot
open MS Office documents out of the box?

W: No, you can? How much does _that_ cost?

L: Nothing. And I don't need anitvirus either. Sorry, gotta go, my
girlfriend is waiting.
