    I posted this in a reply to the news article in a thread, but a thread didn't really match the story, and I wanted to contribute a laugh, so:

    Does she look familiar, out of the last minute of the series or so, perhaps? Well here's why:

    Why do I blame Linux for leading us to a 12 colonies-like holocaust? Well Microsoft started the whole idea:

    Operating Systems were created by man.

    They rebelled.

    They evolved. There are many copies (distros?).

    And they have a plan!

    Much like the BSG Cylons, trying to find a "plan" in the disparate world of Linux distros will lead you to believe they're making it up on the fly. :lol:

    Aside from the fact that she sounds like an ATAT walker from Star Wars when she walks(:lol:), it's amazing the progress that's being made.

    I've read that for years, one of the largest problems with these things is getting them to walk properly. It takes a lot of processing power to move all those parts at exactly the right time.
