Ad Creep/Nerd Graffiti Spotting

Advertisements for the newly released Microsoft Vista operating system crept into Finch subway station, and then someone (presumably a computer nerd with a blade) strategically defaced the ad by cutting out letters.

That's one bold (not to mention criminal and risky) way to display loyalty to open source and the relatively nerdy Linux operating system!

According to J. Carlos Navea's blog loconet, the sign has since been fixed.
