Glyph, honey, the "switch" ads just aren't aimed at *you*, so don't even
bother to take offense at the campaign. They're aimed at people who want
to *not* have to ask their computer any questions about why and how it
does what it does, an ignorance that Macs indulge better than Windows
boxes. These people don't even know Linux exists. The target audience is
people who buy Macs because they are, as the relatively tech-illiterate
mother of a friend of mine said, "the computers that will jump in your lap
and lick your face."

Fund your own "switch" campaign if you don't like it.
