A "LARGE, GLOBAL advertising campaign" might not be the best thing in the world for Linux right now. Linux is still not quite ready for mass consumption. Not in the gamer market (which is where it will break first, like it or not), and definitely not the general luser market. If Linux 'goes pop' too soon, it gets even more of a reputation for being inscrutable... though a global ad campaign might be good for Corel's stock ;)

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
