The Cat Who Knew Linux

Filed under

Humor

On a cold rainy day in March or was it April,
I sat at my PC, so bored ,that is , until.
I saw a strange cat walking, walking uphill.

He walked to my door and into my house.
I was taken aback, by this house entering louse.
he sat in front of my PC, grabbed hold of the mouse
and began to do things I'd only heard espoused.

This cat entered commands and clicked on all manner of buttons.
He hadn't said yet a word, not even "hi butthead"
This cat was a loon, a freak and just weird.
then he turned round and grabbed me , just from my beard.

Turning my heard toward the screen, he did say,
" you'll want to watch me, if you want to do this someday".
The screen was wild, colors so fulla, "this is beryl" he said " I mean it, no bulla".

"You can make windows wobble and desktop cubes spin,
But only if it's in linux you're in."
"No Windows can match this, not XP or Vista
very easy to do, even by your sista."

Among several products it highlights is disk encryption software, TrueCrypt, which was recently subjected to a crowd-funded audit that was able to rule out the existence of NSA backdoors in the product. “TrueCrypt is a typical example of a problem of the commons: worldwide use of software package was probably dependent on two or three developers,” the study notes to highlight why funding open source projects may be valuable.
