4 Awesome RedHat Commercials You Need to See

Filed under
Linux

I was vaguely browsing through different Linux related videos in YouTube when I found out these incredible RedHat commercials. They are not just hard core RedHat commercials, they are more like advertisements for Free Software and Open Source in general. More over, these videos gives a glimpse of the kind of knowledge and expertise RedHat have on everything Linux and Open Source.

RedHat Commercial

This is my favorite among the lot. It talks about the growth trajectory of Open Source movement in general which started off from utter contempt from everyone around to its gradual acceptance everywhere. Inspirational stuff. Watch it.

Pretty neat commercials. Most

Pretty neat commercials. Most people thought Linux was some freckle faced kid after watching those IBM commercials from years past.

re: Commercials

Except they're waaaaaaaay too long.

Commercials are 15-30 secs, not 1:30 - 3:00.

Most people have long since left the building (along with Elvis) after the first 20 seconds or so.

That's one of Linux's main problems - no elevator pitch.

If you can't tell the unwashed hordes what Linux is and why they should be interested in under 20 seconds - you've already lost the battle.

more like info-mercials

rather than commercials.

I agree though, they are interesting for web content, but on regular broadcast media, they wouldn't do.

most people seem to have the attention span of a drug addled 3 year old anymore.
