i talked with a person at a local computer company (about two months ago)
and was just trying to find if anyone in this area used Linux/BSD's so i
could find some folks to aggravate (locally). after politely listening to
how M$ was the only _real_ choice for computers the young man says "we got a
guy here that uses Linux 8, he's been using it for a few weeks so he should
be able to answer any question you may have."
"wow, that's pretty interesting. i only run Debian 3" says i "maybe when i
come in sometime i can pick his brain"
err, i recently passed by their shop and it is now for rent. surely this
guy is making a fortune with "Linux 8", heck i've just got interested in
i will assume that his "Linux 8" was RedHat 8, but it didn't seem a prudent
point to make at the time.
