Yes, in line with that "enemy of my enemy is my friend" tidbit. I hope you
have had a chance to look at these Mac ads, which are available online
somewhere under: http://www.apple.com/getamac/
To say more, any ad that accentuates the negatives in Windows (as opposed
to raving about how 'cool' the Macs are) could motivate a move to Linux
through apathy for Windows and its problems.
