Linux: A European threat to our computers

I’ve just read a great article on Linux (sort of). You’ll probably like it even if you don’t use Linux — it’s not at all techy. But be sure to turn your sense of humour on before visiting the website (if you’re a linux fanboy, anyway).

If you want to be entertained, read the article, it’s hilarious.

Do you want to learn the Bible and the Christian faith online? Check out my new resource:

If you want to be scared, read the comments (how anyone could take that article seriously I do not know — I’m just hoping it’s mostly stereotypical Americans who don’t have a sarcasm detector installed…)

Anyway. Speaking of Linux — I spent some time messing around with FreeBSD last night. I installed phpMyAdmin (a fairly painless process using the ports system), as well as making a local copy of this website. I do like ports, it’s similar to Gentoo’s portage system — works by downloading the source code and compiling locally. I haven’t managed to find a dependency problem yet!

  1. Yeah I have used OpenBSD a bit, a few different things but as long as you have bash then bash is bash…

    (What The ??? Windows users are thinking)

  2. Actually, the version of FreeBSD I have didn’t come with bash. I was thinking about installing it the other day but haven’t got round to it. Fortunately the C shell has got filename completion etc, so it’s not all bad!
