I don't think that OSS needs advertising at all. In my opinion this money
should better be spent on developers (paying someone full-time,
sponsoring meetings etc.)

After all it's not about competing with someone but about creating
something really useful. I don't care whether some graphics artist uses
Adobe products. I care about a cool program to get my stuff done. And I
like the possibility of telling people: "You don't need an illegal
copy of xyz, use this free program instead."
