The “We have the way out” campaign describes Unix as an expensive trap. “No wonder Unix makes you feel boxed in. It ties you to an inflexible system. It requires you to pay for expensive experts. It makes you struggle daily with a server environment that’s more complex than ever,” one ad reads.

This sounds a lot like the Nazi’s “big lie” – if you repeat it often enough, people will start to believe it… or maybe they’re confusing Unix with Windows NT/2000/XP.
