From the OCLUG May tutorial announcement:

“Power Linux for Newbies is a tutorial for those who are ready to move beyond merely being a Linux User and into using Linux to do real work.”

That’s how you bring people around to your way of thinking, folks. You call them newbies, and then tell them that whatever they’re doing isn’t “real work”.

    I forget precisely when (sometime in the last year or so), but the geniuses running the Purdue LUG somewhat recently created a bunch of fliers making lame MS->Nazis/Hitler/Whatever jokes.

    You want to know who found them the most hilarious? The MS rep. visiting campus that week.

    There’s an old line that the worst thing about pot is pot smokers. I think the same thing’s true for Linux.

    I didn’t realize so many pot smokers used Linux, but I guess it does make a weird kind of sense.
