Linux Foundation debuts their own ad: 'Get your freedom'

It's no secret that Microsoft and Apple have recently increased efforts to downplay the opposition through advertising, but it seems they're not the only ones that want in. The Linux Foundation recently held a competition in which the aim was to create the best ad, and the winner would receive a free trip to the Japanese Linux Symposium in October. Oh, and that the ad would be used as the first official one to represent Linux, which is also nice.

The ad has beaten 90 others, and was created by a 25 year old Israeli citizen named Amitay Tweeto. The ad is name 'What does it mean to be free?', and goes through the different things that it means to be free, as mentioned. Please, enjoy the ad, which is embedded below:

In my opinion, it's quite a good ad, and it'll be interesting to see if they bring out a new one. There was another ad that was embedded in the Techworld article which was another member-submitted video, and although it's not in English, it's definitely worth a watch.

So, readers, what do you think about this?
