IBM’s New Linux Ads

By Deane Barker on September 5, 2003

IBM makes play for Linux lead in new ad campaign: In the midst of the SCO brouhaha, IBM apparently feels comfortable enough to unleash a new round of Linux ads.

“He’s nine years old, bright-eyed and hungry to learn. … Meet Linux, a human embodiment of the computer operating system, in a new television commercial by IBM. The ad airs next week during the U.S. Open Men’s Finals and the National Football League’s kick-off on Sunday.”

I liked the last ones with Avery Brooks.
