    The Rebellion vs. The Empire

    It just hit me. This whole MS vs. Linux thing seems like a version of The Empire vs, The Rebellion.

    Think about it. We (The Linux Community) are the small grassroots resistance with much better equipment to the big overpowering Empire that has money and numbers on its side!

    Haha, great analogy! I think that about half the draw of the Linux community for me is... well... the community. Its made up of people who really want to be here, because they found a really great alternative to *indows. The Storm Troopers aren't fighting for any cause they believe in, they just blindly obey the orders from above

    I hope the Troll and Bash Jedis are sleeping, or else this Jedi Knight might have to use the force to wipe this thread off.

    Linux IS user-friendly, it's just picky about it's friends.

    In our case, we had Chancelor Palpatine turn into the Sith Lord (Gentoo creator .

    As usual, just kidding.
