How best to sell a Windows 7 laptop this holiday? show it with an Ubuntu wallpaper of course! [sales fail]

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

‘The Source’ (formerly known as Radio Shack) appear to  have hit upon a rather unique way of selling their Windows 7 running Toshiba laptops to the public judging by a recent flyer…

Show them running what looks like an Ubuntu wallpaper.


Yeah, yeah we know – this probably wasn’t intentional and that image isn’t strictly Ubuntu-branded. But it’s a rather close mimic – and incredibly odd choice – that we, as Ubuntu fans, can raise a snarky smirk to this holiday season.
