I dislike these kind of sites. Not because of the satire, but because it confuses novices. That chap may think it's funny and harmless satire and all that, but visitors who want to use Linux get the wrong message, because they don't see the satire. They simply don't know it's meant that way...

DM makes a good point. Trouble is, satire has to be good to be effective, and that link wasn't.

And satire often doesn't survive crossing a cultural divide.

If you want to have fun with Linux, I prefer Uncyclopedia.

Linux

Ubuntu

Gentoo

... and for 1sf (troll):

Gnome
