New Linux Ad

It’s not very often that I watch football on TV, but I spent a lot of time watching it yesterday. I even watched a little tennis. I was trying to catch IBM’s new ad featuring Linux. Unfortunately, I always seemed to miss it.

Linux is hardly ever mentioned on TV, even though it seems to be taking over the world of computers. I guess it’s true that the revolution will not be televised. Anyway, I found out this morning that you can download the ad from IBM, and they have a transcript available. The best line from the ad is:

Collecting data is only the first step toward wisdom. But sharing data is the first step toward community.

Not many people understand Linux, but whoever wrote that line really gets it.
