I'm just sitting here waiting to watch the archduke drive by.

The difference is that Russia, the US, and China don't want to go to war.

In the early 1900s, not only did the royalty want to go to war, the regular citizens did too. They thought it would be fun, or heroic, or whatever. The archduke didn't matter, they were merely looking for an excuse. When war was declared, people celebrated in the streets. People had forgotten how bad war was.

In production environments, where outages cost real money, support contracts are definitely not a sign of ignorance.

Generally they're a sign of CYA. Seriously, how often have you seen outages as a result of the OS? If it was, then it's probably because you didn't test updates before applying them, or something.

Ubuntu already divides the server from the Desktop. It is split in two, and he didn't need to open his mouth, just do a Google search and he would have found it.

Of course, the distro doesn't have the exact minimal install he needs, but no distro will because everyone has a different set of needed packages. Unless he builds it himself. If only there were a way to do that......I'm pretty sure Gentoo "emerge nginx" will do exactly what he's asking, too.

Also, who on earth is Paul Venezia? He calls himself someone "who builds and maintain large-scale Linux infrastructures." Can that possibly be true?

Tell me, then, which is the best rock band in history, or is no knowledge of the subject possible?
