So then what does that say about Ubuntu users?

or Google employees?: http://haacked.com/images/googlebillboard.jpg

or EA?: http://cdn.jobmob.co.il/images/recruitment-marketing/ea-canada-billboard-job-ad.jpg

or Groupon?: http://cdn.abclocal.go.com/images/7live/2011/photos/8028637_600x338.jpg

None of those companies are known as "low quality" places to work to
my knowledge, and have some pretty high-caliber employees.  I think
billboards is just one more way to market and get out from under the
clutter.  The fact that it was posted to the Linux group here and that
a number of you had seen it is certainly testament to that :-).
