I always wanted to see an add sort of a knock-off of that Mac Super Bowl
ad ... a big rally with a huge TV screen, Windows flags blowing in the
breeze,  Linus is sitting in the grandstand with a laptop ... hits
"return" and the image of Bill Gates on the TV screen goes blank OR morphs
into a penguin. Slowly a chant of "Linux, Linux, Linux" fills the air as
the Windows flags come down, Penguin flags go up and the crowd carries
Linux to the state on their shoulders where he says .... Just Use It!

Linux --- Just use it!
