Oh, dear! I can't believe you posted that junk (no offence intended), unless
it was intended to become a discussion involving laughter and ridicule. I
saw it mentioned in so many places, but its utter 'bullsh*itness' make it
less than worthy to justify reading the second paragraph. So that's that
same article that mentioned Osama Bin Laden and associated that with
GNU/Linux. Correct? I have mixed feeling about leaving the link on top in
