Behold, the page source reads.....
We start our little story with the invention of the modern day computer.
Over the years, the computers grew in numbers, and the next natural step in the evolution was to connect them together. To share things.
But as these little networks grew, some computers gained more power than the rest and called themselves servers ...
They could have used the 'Advertising slogan generator'. http://www.thesurrealist.co.uk/slogan.cgi?word=HMRC
Some of my preferred choices...
* Stop! This HMRC is not Ready Yet!
* Hands That Do Dishes Can Be Soft As Your HMRC.
* You Can Do It When You HMRC It!
Scary eh? Soon we'll all be replaced by computers! Mooowahahahahaha....
I'm guessing you've not heard about the phenomenal success of the Linux powered Walmart PC or the Linux powered Asus Eee PC that stores like Toys R Us are flogging at the moment then?
Also, I believe Asda is also selling a Linux PC albeit through their online electricals store.
You'd be surprised ;-)
I love all of the 'Linux is too difficult for bog standard users and no one is using it comments' - You guys crack me up!
Watch this space, as the cheapy PCs without MS tax start getting more and more popular, you'll bow down to your penguin leaders Mooooowahahahahahahahaha!
Footnote. I've migrated my missus, older family members and a guy who fried his graphics card, because the fan ended up full of man hair and kebab leftovers to Ubuntu and I don't get nagged to fix their computers anymore. They just work!
You've only to look at some of the up-and-coming products like the asus eee PC and the Walmart gOS Linux PC to see that Linux is going starting to go mainstream.
At the end of the day, money talks, and if someone can get themselves a cheap PC that browses the net, and runs a word processor, they're happy.
Another blogger has also run tests comparing load/unload cycles of Windows Vista and Ubuntu.
"Now I rebooted in Windows Vista Home Premium, let the system run for fifteen minutes and rebooted into Ubuntu. After taking measurements again, surprisingly there was a ten cycle increase.
So the only conclusion I can draw here is that Windows Vista does not alter settings provided from BIOS/microcode either."
After post mortem, the pathologist tends to chuck all of the organs he removed for examination into a yellow clinical waste bag, then stuffs said bag, back into the happy customer.
This being true - the chance of the vampire hunter hitting Slobo's heart with a stake - blind, is pretty similar to the chance of a pork pie reaching its expiry date in Rick Waller's fridge.
