Here you'll see the usual suspects, PC and Mac kind of trading insults but they are interrupted by a pretty woman — Linux is her name and their destruction is her game. Or something like that. In addition here's a bonus Get a Mac ad that's a pretty funny shot at Microsoft's Vista security. http://www.networkworld.com/community/?q=node/1272 3"
