The Man who is Killing Linux

I finally found him.

This man, an Intel employee living somewhere around Portland, Oregon, joined us for dinner one evening during GUADEC.

I think I need not impress upon my readers exactly why and how he is single-handedly killing Linux.

  1. I followed the link and STILL didn’t get the joke.

  2. You just now made me realize I was wearing sandals (no, correction, “FLIP FLOPS”) the entire week. I am amazed you said nothing of this.

    I guess that apparel decision was justified by the beautiful warm climate that was lucky enough to have GNOME in its presence.

  3. Here’s a link to a CNET News.com article about the infamous comment at the root of the joke.

    This should clear things up for SomeoneCluesLess.

  4. But you really need to listen to the podcast because Ted took a nice “random” sampling of the Linux community during his footwear survey at the start of the show.

  5. SomeoneClueLess, did you take time to listen to the first few minutes of the podcast?

    Did you follow the fourth link in the show notes?

  6. Even worse, his T-shirt proclaims he is a *rocket scientist*! Has he no shame?

    Ian (certainly not wearing the same shirt, no sirree…)

    P.S. don’t let the BMW-driving VP’s know that he unicycles to work.
