Mac OS X cats VS. The Linux animals – The Aftermath..
I just want to start off by thanking our fantastic blog audience and customers for all the fun answers, good time banter, support and link-love our recent ‘Who would win in a struggle between all the Mac OS X cats and all the Linux animals?’ post resulted in. You guys sure know how rally around something you find amusing!
Our original idea was just see if we could possibly get 10 people to name a few animals, maybe comment on our little artwork and hand out a few GB of free storage to a few users. Something that turned into over 10.000 hits, 60+ comments and our image and following desktop-wallpaper pack being syndicated to several major blogs and wallpaper websites.
Since Wednesday I have been trying to figure out what to do to reward all you wonderful people who contributed and I think (I hope no one gets upset by this sudden change of rules) since our contest rules were vague to say the least and very few actually got 100% on the naming, order etc. (if we want to be picky) this is what we are going to do.
ANYONE who at the arbitrary time of midnightish between Thursday and Friday September 23rd/24th commented on the original post is welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the name you used for your comment and where geographically you posted the comment from (we will check this with Geo-ip, cause we are just that awesome!). Then as if by magic, you will receive back a code good for adding an extra 10GB to your free or paid SpiderOak account!
For those interested the correct animals, in order of appearance according to the artist should be as follows: [Linux]: (Top) Heron; (Left to Right) Ibex, Gibbon, Gecko/Chameleon, Badger, Koala, Warthog, Lynx, Fawn (Deer), Jackalope, Eft (Newt); (Bottom) Hedgehog, Drake (Duck). [Mac]: (Left to Right) Cheetah, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Tiger, Jaguar; (Bottom) Puma, Panther.
Of course we encourage everyone to give our service a shot by downloading the SpiderOak client and signing-up for our free service.
Once again, thank you all for your support and I look forward to ‘seeing’ you all again shortly for something completely different!
