Mac, PC, and Linux - Advert 10Mac, PC, and Linux - Commercial 10: The Switch
PC: Hey, Mac, check out my widgets and multiple desktops.
MAC: Hmph. That's nothing, nya. You haven't seen my lenses and application indicators. They're very intuitive.
LINUX: Hey, you guys forgot to tell us you were starting!
