Hail, Lord Linux! Hail, Lord Linux! Forgive us, Great Lord, for our mumblings of grub and discontent; who so loved Unix that he sent his only begotten son, Torvalds, to show us the way; whose great Crons at which we can only marvel! Ye, whose glorious tar balls which we are truly unworthy to lick from thy feet; who doth set before us, the unreachable and unfathomable CUPS from which only the most holy dare drink; who did make happen, the incomprehensible Nvidia display appear across the wondrous heavens of GUI.

Yet, we know Lord, in times of doubt that thou sendest thine daemons to try and test our knowledge and we know that if we only had faith the size of the Kernel, we could say to this Gnome desktop, “Move from here to there”, and it will move. We could say to this terminal, “Be unRooted and planted in the fertile open source fields”, and it would obey and nothing will be impossible for us.

Hear our pleas, O Lord, and forgive us our incoherent yums as we forgive our drivers. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from Windoze, for thine is the root:>, the acpi and the error free installation, forever, and ever. EOF.

{…ends with much groveling and bowing in the nether regions}

<--------<<<< ROTFL!

Classic! Just, classic!

Nice work ... except remember it's a family channel. Watch the language.

May I suggest the following edit?

Sure - go for it! Sorry, thought ars** would be more acceptable than other words. You can delete if you like.

I think we just need to lighten up, sometimes. We are all trying to make this work and everyone's efforts are definitely appreciated.

OK. Edited.

However, it might be a good idea to avoid things religious in the future. We are an international forum, and represent many nationalities and faiths. Our goal is to help each other with software, not to offend folks, and the easiest way to avoid unintentional offense, is to avoid things like politics and religion.

Fedora release is not quite bleeding edge, but yo uwill definitely get more than a few bumps and bruises from Fedora. If you want smooth running you should really seek out an end-user distro like Ubuntu or Mint or ....
I know Linux is not UNIX, but I consider it to be Unix. It behaves much the same way as other Unixes that share lineage. Also, Microsoft didn't overtake Unix entirely. Yes, during the past quarter, about sixty percent of all servers sold with Microsoft Windows operating systems. That's where the flaw lies. As much as Microsoft would like you to believe, sales is not a good indicator of dominance when you pit mostly open source against closed source. A lot of times, companies and organizations buy servers with or without operating systems and load Unix onto them afterwards. I know for fact that the NJ state government where my dad works as an Oracle DBA does this. The employees there load RHEL or Solaris on machines after receiving them.
