You have to hand it to Novell: the Linux vendor knows how to piggyback on a popular ad campaign. The company’s pro-Linux parody of Apple’s “Mac vs. PC” ads not only co-opts a well known ad series (guaranteeing instant recognition), it scores major satiric points for the open source OS.
But humor aside, the ads make some interesting points about how the three OSes compete with each other in the marketplace. Most significantly, they point out that the OS race is very much a three-way event, regardless of whether Apple or Microsoft acknowledges that.
