No offense, ninnle linux, but mklinux is pretty good. It's linux on top of the mach microkernel. (Think of it as a "fuck you" to gnu/hurd, though that's not why it exists :-). Since it's sponsored by Apple, it works better on Apple hardware than the stock linux kernel. Maybe now that Linux is using OS X and Sublime Text for linux development, we'll get better Macintosh support in the mainline kernel? Anyhow, mklinux is pretty cool.

There are plenty of Stallman parties. You know, people with one issue and one answer. "If we legalize meth, we can eliminate the deficit" (Legalize Meth Party). "If we lower the age of consent to 11, we can end the recession" (Lower the Age of Consent to 11 Party) "If we stick our thumb up our ass, we can bring peace to the middle east" (Thumb Up Our Ass Party). Democans and Republicrats start looking pretty good when those clowns are invited to the debates.
