    Spiffy. Now we need to sprinkle these all over the UK along with free Ubuntu CD's in the mail :D

    The problem with that advert though is that whilst it may be simple and "for human beings" if any particular person looking at the board doesn't know what linux is... it's usefulness and meaning is lost.

    You're right. The only people who would know what the sign even meant--to the point they would care, anyway--are already aware of Linux. Simplicity isn't the way to raise awareness in this case. The average computer user doesn't even know what the words "operating system" mean, let alone the fact that there are different ones.

    Education is an uphill climb.

    I actually saw this sign just yesterday on the way from Mountain View to San Fransisco. :)
