As we all know, Vista was released last week with big events all over the globe. With these events also came huge wall size ads announcing Vista’s “WOW” to the world. These ads can be seen all over subway stations in Toronto. This morning on my way to class, I spotted this “modified” ad:
Now, while I’m all for Linux exposure, I’m not too sure about the negative image this may bring to Linux. Most people walking by most likely have not clue what “Linux” is and may now equate it as some
graffiti tag cut-out that some delinquent kids made on top of some Vista thing ad. Hopefully I’m wrong. Regardless of what the general population may think of this, I have to say that as a Linux user, it gave me a good laugh.
Edit: The pictures are from Finch station.
Edit [2007-02-06 09:59 am]: It has now been removed. After closer inspection and more caffeine this morning, it is safe to say that I may stand corrected (It looks like it was a cut out). They removed it by cutting off the paint around the letters. It is now mostly a big square cut-out on top of the windows logo.
