Sun aims ads directly at Microsoft employees

Posted by Kim Peterson at 9:50 AM

From The New Marketing blog comes word (and photos) of some advertising on buses running routes on the Eastside touting OpenOffice, Sun Microsystems' open-source collection of productivity programs. The ads refer to a "Us-opoly" and tell viewers to "stop giving a bully your lunch money." Other slogans include "compatible with expensive, closed, memory loving software" and "prehistoric reptilians welcome."

You can even buy these slogans on clothing at Sun's Cafepress store.

I thought Microsoft and Sun were making nice?
