Anecdote

In my Game Analysis class, the teacher who goes by Gibby (short for GibbletOmelette), was telling us how bad we all need to play Halflife. I guess its the closest thing this class has to required reading. I know I could get it to, but to be a smartass I was like, "Does it run in Linux?" He was like, "You do everything in Linux?", and I was like, "Yep."
"You do your homework in Open Office?"
"Yep."
Then he asked, "What distribution do you use?" and I started with, "well...", so he interrupted me and said he wanted what I use right now, not my history. I told him SuSE, and he said, "Pff, mainstream."
"Well, before this I used Gentoo."
"Pff, mainstream."
Gentoo is NOT mainstream. I don't think the idea of compiling your entire operating system from the source code appeals to many people. He said I should use Slackware (the oldest distro still under development), an I retorted, "Slackware's for old people."
His jaw dropped. He grabbed the clipboard with the roll sheet. The sheet has a space for notes next to each student's name. I don't know if he was really writing, but he acted like he was, and he said out loud, "Called teacher old fucker."
I was like, "What?!", and he said, "They'll believe me, not you."

It was good times.

Wow...you're all kinds of spammed. Anyway, that's amusing...silly Linux people, fighting about who's old, and who's mainstream. No linux is mainstream. I don't understand compiling, and it's been explained to me about five times.
