A bit of trolling, but i mean this seriously in a way.

The article mentions having a villain. Who is our villain? Is it
Microsoft or Canonical?

But seriously, we focus on being a leader where it doesn't matter what
other people are doing. Being compared to either of those two just
goes against our principles.

I think our villian is proprietary software and closed formats. Our
villian is maybe people who don't share?

Looks like a good book to read. I question the villain item recently. Yes, that is what the mac ads are. But the keynotes are all about lifestyle and coolness. The Air had no villian, and I dont think the iPhone did. It was more coolness then against "Them".

For broader adoption, I think Linux and FOSS needs that type of coolness which speaks to a broader audience. Closed formats speak to some, but for others who can read their 10 year old .doc formats in Office 2009 it is not a big play.
