c|net is running an informative article about the troubles businesses based on open-source software face in these slow economic times.

Almost anyone who's worked with clueless users will double over laughing at this: a live-action, Internet-only video series called "Salmon Days", starring the Bastard Operator from Hell.

You have to call a phone number and pay a small fee to gain access to the full episodes, but just the trailer is hilarious, and the profits go to charity.
...big deal, get on with it.
