Im Linux

The Linux Foundation recently started an online contest to solicit submissions from the community to promote Linux in response to Apple’s ubiquitous “I’m a Mac” ad and Jerry Seinfeld to Microsoft’s “I’m a PC” campaign.

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.

Here is one of the interesting videos I’ve found (don’t use a PC, don’t use a MAC, make it LINUX baby!):
