Can Windows Vista launch buy your senses?
I've just watched (warning: direct link) a Windows Vista launch. Man, it's not like that wasn't expected, but they can practically buy your senses for the moment, yes even common sense. I wonder if anyone but us Free Software enthusiasts can resist this gigantic marketing machine that Microsoft has. For the moment it can seem like they own the world, they win everything and are unstoppable. They have chiefs of the largest corporations in the world lining up to get the first edition of Windows Vista and show up in their videos talking all the great things about Vista.
What an ironically crucial moment was it when execs of the major computer vendors were getting their Vista.. I mean, it is exactly those vendors who hold the key to GNU/Linux domination as well, either by starting pre-installing GNU/Linux or just dieing. But MS has got them by the balls pompously.
Oh well I'll save the rant. Everbody knows this anyway.
The question is how does GNU/Linux, apparently still an underdog, respond to this mind washing? How do we mind wash people back to our side?
Everyone can contribute. Even this site can contribute. After experiencing a bit of their mind numbing spectacle, maybe we should put on a show of our own. The question is just.. how..
