Taken in context: "Yahoo is actually really big over there. eBay exists, but may as well not: Yahoo! Auctions is overwhelmingly dominant in online auctions. Yahoo! Shopping takes the role of Amazon.com. (Amazon itself has a presence also, and it isn't too shabby.) And Yahoo! Japan is also a broadband provider with a lot of mindshare." Links for Japan. What does this have to do with Mexico? Why not post links for Mexico since, you know, this article is about Mexico, not a country that is not even on the same continent?

I wouldn't know how they look since it was slashdotted. I agree that informing and educating the public is a good thing, but why not bring laptops running a distro and actually SHOWING them rather than just counting on them installing it on their own systems (I guarantee most of those disks hit the trash).

No, not really. While techies will herald this as a good thing, normal computer users will go "Well that was rude!" and "What is Linux?". Case in point: when I shared this on my Facebook I had 3 comments go "I thought a Gnu was an animal?", "Did they have to crash the party? Why not just send the journos a press release with pros/cons?" and "What OS do you use?" to which I replied "I use Win 7 on my desktop, Win 7 with Ubuntu dual booting on my laptop, OSX Mountain Lion on my Macbook Pro and ICS on my phone."
