Naming

I went to the local print shop today.  It turns out that they are switching to Linux.  I asked why and they said “because we hate Microsoft”.

“Great,” I thought.  So I told them I worked at Red Hat… blank stares.  Elyn asked what distro they’re installing (way to go Elyn!) and they said Kubuntu — which, I learned, is cool because it has a Japanese name.

I made a comment about Shuttleworth being an astronaut.  More blank stares… this kind of thing is funnier at OSCON.

Be the first to leave a comment. Don’t be shy.
