    Smell Like Ubuntu - Facebook Campaign!

    Hello Windows users, look at the BBC story, now back at my post, look at the BBC story, now back at my post, sadly you're using Windows. But if you installed a real operating system like Ubuntu, your computer could be like mine. Look down now back up. Where are you? You're on Facebook with a comment posted by an Ubuntu computer your computer could look like. What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it. Its a mouse to click to that site you love! Look again, the mouse is now a keyboard. Anything is possible when your computer looks awesome and not lame. I'm on a chair.

    Comments welcome - if you feel like it you could post this on Facebook.

    I was pleased that this time they actually stated WINDOWS computers. It's usually a blanket statement.

    There's too much to say and so little time to edit it within the CoC!

    Yup, I seem to remember writing to the BBC to complain about coverage that implicated "computers", when the story(s) was specifically about computers running Windows. That was in my angry Ubuntu days. There does seem to be strong links between the BBC and MS - http://techrights.org/2010/09/13/mic...ism-bbc-nokia/ - though not sure if there is evidence to suggest this is behind the BBC's, at times, misleading reporting.
