That's interesting. Doesn't say much about the world outside the Bay. I haven't seen the Linuxcare stuff. I do remember a poster where a guy is working on his Unix system and is waving-away a hot woman entering his room holding a flower bouquet anxiously hoping to interact with him.
The great thing about the couple on the Linux laptop is the guy contributed a lot of code to a major open source project several years ago, and he is about to build a Linux box for her (she sounded excited about that.) I'm a big fan of "reality advertising."
I have a good friend, who is very unfamiliar with computers (he has been making some progress and is much more comfortable using them now.) I built a Linux box for him 2 1/2 years ago (running SuSE Pro 9.3), which he uses for web browsing, email and occasional word processing. The computer has only experienced one problem in that time (a glitch with the Reiser file system,) and has never crashed. He has no problem using it and is quite happy with it. His previous MS Windows box was a nightmare, nothing but viruses, crashes and poor performance. He would make a great reality ad.
Do you Yahoo!?
Everyone is raving about the all-new Yahoo! Mail.
