Ubuntu Humor

MarkShuttleworth’s FAQ has the following passage in the answer to the question “What about the GCC 4.0 transition? Why did you adopt GCC 4.0?”:

“This was discussed with the Debian toolchain maintainers, who were themselves planning to adopt GCC 4 at some time (well, sort of involved the Ubuntu maintainer talking to himself, they are the same guy, …).”

Several minutes after reading the FAQ, I still find the above passage to be hilarious.

Note also Bug #1 in Ubuntu.

I am deaf since birth. I played with big computers which eat punched cards and spew out printouts since age 12. Ever since they became available, I work and play with desktop size computers which eat keyboard keypresses and spew out display pixels. Among other things, I developed software which helped the deaf in Israel use the telephone network, by means of home computers equipped with modems. Several years later, I developed Hebrew localizations for some cellular phones, which helped the deaf in Israel utilize the cellular phone networks. I am interested in entrepreneurship, Science Fiction and making the world more accessible to people with disabilities.
