That was so unexpected it made my head hurt. And it was from IBM?

I was surprised they paid money for actual stars to appear in it, as if they expect a return for their money from that. I dunno - maybe they figured a bunch of system admins were watching and they wanted them to know that IBM PCs run good linux servers.

Me, I just enjoyed the Muhammud Ali segment

It's totally aimed at IT Directors, not actual tech people. It's so my boss will say "Hey, what do you think about IBM's new product, Linux?"

Well, my former boss, anyway. Probably not the current one



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Samoflange, you correct but so? This is just human nature. We want to feel good and feel like we are doing something whether we are or not.
