    more free advertising for ubuntu

    one of our local radio stations in the last hour was calling for people to ring in and tell them what they thought the greatest thing since sliced bread was. sliced bread started happening in australia 80 years ago apparently

    so i rang in and told them all about ubuntu

    we all had 60 seconds to tell why our device or what ever was so good, but i had written a heap of stuff down and i just kept going and going and going

    it all went to air, i had a friend of mine in the other room listening and he was laughing his head off


    so, i have again done more free advertising for this operating system for free and it has reached over 100,000 listeners

    had to share!

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu

    sliced what?
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    I don't want sliced bread. I want my bread unsliced so that I have the freedom to choose whether to slice it, or whether to leave it as is, and if I choose to slice it, to choose my own thickness, before passing my modifications on to the next user
