That's an excellent demo that I have never seen before. There many more that
are less of a 'directed effort' at:


There are also promotional videos at:


This includes:

| The Corruptibles
| Trusted Computing - Sounds great. Does it?
| Choice
| Truth Happens (video by RedHat)
| Inevitable
| "Prodigy" IBM Linux Advertisement
| Eben Moglen on Free Software
| Cory Doctorow on threats to Free Culture

Some of these (and more) appear in:

You know that Linux has gone mainstream when it has got so deeply entwined
with the production industry. Apple is heading down the same road. It seems
to have begun several years ago with the introduction of the iPod. And 12%
of today's laptops (or those that are sold) are iBooks. Most of the
remainder are sold with Windows (some are sold blank, e.g. Novatach in the
UK, which gives Linux-ready laptops). Many of these will be immediately
converted to Linux or be dual-boot laptops with GNU/Linux. I suspect that,
quite inevitably, we shall be seeing a lot of Linux on TV. What's more,
every Motorola, or Sony Playstation, or Nintendo Wii is a Linux device
(among so many other brands that head in this direction).
