Can't Use The Name Lindows? How About Lin—s?
from the won't-back-down dept
Michael Robertson is not known for backing down when challenged. In fact, his specialty seems to be taking controversy and turning it to his advantage for the publicity. Thus, it should be no surprise to hear that when told he can no longer use the Lindows name in certain European countries, he’d change the offering name to Lin—s instead (pronounced LinDash). No matter how much of a cheap publicity stunt it is, you have to admit that the hangman graphic on the Lin—s.com site (yes, they got the domain) showing all the crossed off letters not needed to fill in the missing letters is somewhat amusing.
