Who Would Linux Hire?

Filed under
Linux

As Microsoft is chided by the media and in the blogosphere about its decision to hire comedian Jerry Seinfeld as the new Vista spokesperson, I ponder just who the Linux community would hire as their representative. Assume for a moment that the community (a) actually had an interest in hiring a celebrity to “sell” the OS in the mass market and (Cool could raise the money to pay the bill, who who it be?

Smart alec as I tend to be, the first comedian that comes to mind is Rodney Dangerfield, whose “No Respect” humor may speak to the feelings of current Linux users. There’s one small logistical problem to overcome - Dangerfield died in 2004.

How about Jeff Foxworthy?

re: who would linux hire

Of course for Linux, it wouldn't be ONE comedian, it would somewhere between 35-500, since there is no "one" linux but a zillion different fragments all slinging their own hash.
