I think the title: I Ubuntu, Therefore, I Am
Should be changed, in my eyes, that's saying I exist because I use Ubuntu, if I don't use Ubuntu, I don't exist and am a nobody.

Please think about it.

I have never read that before. :confused:
Anyhow it seems advertising language.

Please think about it.
Consider it pondered.

If you have a better idea I'll consider it as well. No promises, though. :)

Well, the original pondering from Decartes was designed to demonstrate the fact of his existence (i think therefore I am), but he was not saying that on those ocassions where we don't think per se (e.g. when unconscious or acting on instinct) we cease to exist. To the extent, then, that the Ubuntu line is an homage or a nod to Decartes, I think we can consider it safe on the existence/non-existence angle.

Who'd have thought that Ubuntu could be so ontologically challenging?

How about:
A 10 Gallon Barrel Of Ubuntu

Or something along those lines.

+1 for "I Ubuntu, therefore I am"; it's not broke, don't fix it. ;)


... that's saying I exist because I use Ubuntu, if I don't use Ubuntu, I don't exist and am a nobody. ...
But it's true. :)

Either way, this is almost as silly as worrying over bean count. In the end, does it really matter?

yeah +1 "I Ubuntu, therefore, I Am."

the OP has the right to view it negatively, while the other few Hundred thousands has the right to view it positively. ;)

Oh that..yes the .gif looks horrible..
I liked it, pretty amusing.

However, I think it should be :

I Ubuntu, Therefore I am.
No comma between therefore and I.

Even if it is grammatically incorrect?
