Santa Clara, CA - A recent survey of Linux users
found that the two main factors in their migration to Linux was
its stability and that it made them feel intellectually superior. Developers
promise that along with USB support there will be increased intellectual
superiority in the upcoming 2.4 kernel release AKA the "Hubris" kernels.
"Many users complained that in our previous release that we
sacrificed some intellectual superiority in the name of 'ease of
use'. We aren't going to make that mistake in this release," said
kernel programmer Johan Klens.
"Programmers have worked very hard in the latest kernel release
trying to make even simple tasks more difficult," continued
Mr. Klens, "This release is going to include the "ocsh" -
the obfuscated C shell, sure to be a favorite of intellectual superiors. In
addition to inputting commands as obfuscated C code, users can also
input commands in binary directly to the registers. It took
me 10 minutes to code the directions to 'cat' using ocsh, but it
was worth it!"
"I was impressed by the stability of Linux," said Thomas
Azizi "and since I'm a loser in pretty much every other facet
of my life, gloating about my OS choice makes me feel great."
"Let's face it. Linux isn't for dummies," said Linux advocate
Dieter Braun, "There may have been a Linux for Dummies book,
but I doubt it sold a single copy. I'm sure Windows for Dummies was
a best seller."
