Where's the Camel?

by brian d foy

Sleepycat Software, the guys behind Berkeley DB, had an ad in a recent Dr. Dobbs Journal with the hook "Where's the sleeping cat?"

The rest of the ad copy told me where the sleepy cat was (the usual suspects---Linux, Apache, and so on), saying "you may very well have used Berkeley DB without knowing it."

I like the idea of this ad. Perhaps Perl and a lot of other infrastructure workhorses could do the same thing---so "Where's the Camel?"

Have you seen good ads for open source products?
