Judaism is Linux

with 3 comments

This is a response to Heather Gold’s Microsoft = Christian, Apple = Jews.

Judaism is really Linux:

  1. There’s 100s of commands, most users don’t know half of them and don’t understand half of those.
  2. Maintenance can keep you busy from the second you open your eyes until the second you close them again.
  3. It doesn’t do marketing. If you want to buy in, you need to convince us that you’re good enough.
  4. Every user and his sister have their own customised version.
  5. At the core, its text based. Have a question? RTFM.
  6. Ok, we’ll give you a friendly interface (Ubuntu / Reform).
  7. You won’t believe the bizarre ideas people still have about us (no, I don’t speak Yiddish, and I don’t compile my own kernel).
  8. The vendors suck, but you can always rely on the community.
  9. Everybody copies our code.
  10. Arrogant? no, we’re just better. But sush. Don’t want to upset anyone, do we?

Dear Times of India, what part of Creative Commons don’t you understand?

Times of India is finding it hard to get its head around internet culture and intellectual rights. I mean, stealing a Wikipedia article? How stupid can you get?
