LOL! I predict I'll see that in a sig line sometime in the future!
One of the interesting things about open source is insight into the simple
humanity aspect of the kernel hackers on occasion. Linus's always
real-world applicable humor is another example, and one couldn't help but
draw their own conclusions at the contrast between the pix of Bill Gates
with cream-pie in his face, and Linus, sitting on that dunk tank board. I
know which guy's kernel *I'm* more likely to be comfortable with running
MY "mission critical applications" on, even if those "mission critical
applications" are no more than XMMS, my newsreader (PAN), and web browser
(Konqueror), all running at the same time.
