Somewhere in California - At 8:30 PDT with the release
of Snoopy Linux 2.1 and Goober Linux 1.0, the number of Linux distributions
finally surpassed the number of actual Linux users.
"We've been expecting it for some time," Merrill Lynch
technology analyst Tom Shayes said, "but this is a little sooner
than most expected. We've seen explosive growth in the number
of Linux distributions, in fact my nephew just put out Little Tommy Linux 1.1 last week."
Long time Linux guru Bob Tallman said, "This is great for the
open source movement. I have 7 different versions installed
on my computer at home. Some guys I know have over 30."
Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer said, "Microsoft will have to
play catch up with the number of versions that Linux has, but we
think we can do it. With the break up of Microsoft imminent
that will instantly double the number of Windows versions available."
Microsoft also announced the release of Pocket PC for Workgroups,
Windows GT special edition and Windows 2000 - the Director's Cut
with special code added by Bill Gates himself that wasn't in the
