Novell’s take on the Mac vs PC ads

We've all seen those new ads from Apple - the one where the Mac is ever-so-trendy and cool and the (fairly obviously Windows-based) PC.

You've probably also seen some of the many different spoofs that you'll find in vast quantities around the web.

To promote their SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop product, Novell have done their own spoof versions of the ads, with their own similar, but no the same PC and Mac guys and a woman who represents Linux.

I'm not too sure about continuing to promote the idea that PC == Windows, but still, they are quite well done.

They've produced two so far, and there's another one yet to come.

YouTube versions below, or you can grab Ogg Theora versions of the first and second spoofs as well.

So what are FOSSwire readers views on the spoofs? Good, bad or a complete waste of time?
