    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    I am assuming it is a joke being april fools and all but when I see the term "blue Screen" my blood boils.
    Then I have to post it.

    I think this is a joke. Actually, I hope this is a joke. If it's not then it's really weird.

    Actually.... I often see a blue screen at my pc at home.
    But don't worry, it's relaxing.... it's just a "BSOD" screensaver

    Yes, this was a joke. I had a good laugh though.
