Linux Developer Gets Laid

By Brian Briggs

Philadelphia, PA - In news that is sure to excite the Linux community, long time Linux developer Todd Stanton got laid.

Happy Todd"I still have trouble believing it myself," said Todd.  I was doing some coding for a blog hosting client  when my power supply blew.  Instead of pulling out the spare like I usually would, I decided to head down to Best Buy to check out the new DVD releases.   Nothing new was out, so I bought another copy of  'The Matrix' since the one I had was pretty worn out.  Turns out the checkout girl was a Matrix fan too and well one thing led to another."

Word spread rapidly on message boards and on IRC.  "It's pretty irresponsible of him and shows his lack of dedication to Linux and the open source movement," said Fred Simpson.  "If others try to emulate this behavior then a lot of projects could get derailed."

Others like Gary Wilcox were glad to hear the news, "We're tired of all those Microsoft developers shoving their Win-Ho's in our face.  Now we can tell them about Todd.  Who's laughing now?" Certainly not those with with an information assurance degree or a masters in public administration.

Some developers are also excited that this may increase their chances of getting lucky, but most are being realistic.  Walker Crandall said, "We thought we'd all be doing the hokey-pokey after Bill Fitzsimmons got some during the LinuxWorld Conference in 1999.  We were fooling ourselves.  Nobody got nothing."

This is the third such occurrence for Linux developers since 1991.
