Looks like it's part of the source code of the linux kernel.

Was that done in GIMP? I wish I could figure out how to get color output.

ascii means it was done with characters, this is all keystrokes and html, no pictures

Have you seen the source code of that page, though?

Ugh, it's full of <FONT> tags. True nerds use CSS.

Gimp saves as ASCII but not like that.

There are plenty of converters that will make an HTML document for you, and there are ones that will use whatever text you want.

Looks like it's part of the source code of the linux kernel.

Is it though? Must be an old version, because I am pretty sure the kernel's entry point for x86 processors is: /arch/x86/boot/main.c not /init/main.c

That ascii image has been around for years, I believe it is the source code for one of the early 2.4 kernels. This thread has been around for years too. Closed.
