8 reasons why linux is like religion

1 Christianity has Jesus as Lord and Savior. Linux has Linus Torvalds.

2 Jesus Christ was followed by the disciples, while Linux Torvalds was assisted by the original programmers.

3 Christianity has different Denominations. Linux has Distributions.

4 Accepting Jesus as your savior saves you from the fires of hell and demons, while installing Linux on your computer will protect you from the hell of data loss, viruses, and malware.

5 Christianity views Satan as the being of ultimate evil, while Linux perceives Bill Gates as the Evil One.

6 Linux is defined by its source code, while Christianity follows the Bible.

7 Christianity offers salvation for no cost at all other than the occasional tithe and charity donation. Linux is also free with only the occasional shipping charge or support fee.

8 Religious folks are instructed to go out into the world and teach others the good news. Linux users also do their part in converting those that have been drawn in to the evil darkness of Microsoft.

i dont know who wrote this a friend just emailed it to me

Linus is pretty cool, no wonder it has such a strong 'fan-base' :P

today i just gave ubuntu a first try (got my 64-bit CD from ubuntu today, finally :P)

the OS is pretty solid. I just can't find how to install drivers for my sony-ericsson phone (which also happens to be my modem).

i have just tested Ubuntu 8.04 running it off the CD.

ruhaan and others, any idea how to install drivers of my phone?

plus, i can see all my drives (NTFS c:/,d:/,e:/ etc) which wasn't the case when i tried an old version of Fedora a year or so back, will i be able to access all my drive even if i install ubuntu?

in ubuntu 7.10 you had to install some software (cant remember the name) to make it able to write to those ntfs partitions now ubuntu 8.04 supports writing to ntfs partitions by default!

somewhere on the forums i got to read about Ruhaan jslip ........... Linux extremist Ruhan jslip :P :p :D ,,,,,,,,,

While i am a linux user, i also use windows... Why? Simply cause i like difference, thus, i use linux & windows.

9th reason could be: where christianity has preachers like pope and others, similarly linux has ruhan and his followers.
