Video Contest: I am Linux

The Linux Foundation is launching a video contest and you can win yourself a trip to Tokyo next year to participate in the Linux Foundation Japan Linux Symposium Oct, 2009.

If you've been alive and aware of mass media over the last twelve months, you've probably seen television commercials from Apple and Microsoft touting their operating system. From Apple's ubiquitous "I'm a Mac" to Jerry Seinfeld to Microsoft's "I'm a PC" retort, operating system commercials have been flooding the airways. Except one OS has been notably absent – Linux.

You can upload your contest video here.

I believe IBM has made some “I’m Linux” commercial. However, this contest sounds cool!

This is awesome. Certainly the Linux community can do better than that Seinfeld flop. Were they talking about windows? I couldn’t tell.

This is going to be really interesting to watch. If the community develops the ads for the OS maybe large manufacturers like Dell will finally release machines with linux. Why? Because aside from being functional/stable/awesome they wont have to spend a whole lot of money advertising it.

I really hope some one comes with a killer idea. Let me know any one of you made a video for the contest.

Don’t have images to go with it yet but the phrasing I would use would be like
“I am a collector, I am a banker, I am a musician, I am an artist, I am Linux!”
