They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

Unleash the power of the TILDE~~~

If you are so disturbed by John's move, please don't direct your frustration towards him. People like myself were concerned about this so direct it all to me, I have broad shoulders.

As many of you know, I am refurbishing PC's and giving them to needy children. For my organization, "Damn Small" is a concern.

Mrs. Smith says to Mr. Livesay; "Thank you so much for the computer! My 9yr old is so excited because he will finally be able to do his homework like the other kids and not have to sneak into school early to type his papers so his peers won't know he doesn't have a PC. Where can I have my son go to learn more about this wonderful software you have on these PC's?"

Mr. Livesay says to Mrs. Smith; "Just have him log onto"

Mrs. Smith says; "Hmmm DAMNsmall linux? I can't tell my 9yr old to do that."

The above scenario about sneaking into school because of peer pressure is a true story. I'm sure there are some areas where damn is thrown around openly in public in the presence of children but there are some areas where that is not true.

If you truly want Linux to spread to the masses, you have to start with the kids. To start with the kids, you have to make sure that the distro is "kid -friendly" with no reason for it to be rejected. I would hate for 'damn' to stand in the way of thousands of people enjoying Linux.

By saying thousands, I am not being overly dramatic. If I had my full time to devote to me NFP, I could distribute 2-3,000 in a month, easy. The only thing limiting me would be how fast I could install the OS!

My $.02

DSL Small Linux is a good one!

I like DSLinux as well

political correctness is eating this country!

I could care less about the word "DAMN" I have left fly a few choice words accidentally in front of my kids (like the time I dropped a 14' monitor on my big toe on my left foot when it fell of a 3 foot desk) It it was played on the radio it would have been a 25 second solid string beep...people would have thought it was an emergency broadcast or something!

My kids see and hear worse all be cant protect them from everything...and this is one word that means nothing...

How bout translations in all different languages...

Damn Small Linux - English
Fichu Petit Linux - French
Verfluchtes Kleines Linux - German
&#23567;Linux - Traditional Chinese (whoah!!)
&#12356;&#12414;&#12356;&#12414;&#12375;&#12367;&#23567;&#12373;&#12356;Linux - Japanese
&#51648;&#46021;&#54620; &#51089;&#51008; &#47532;&#45573;&#49828; - Korean
Damn &#1052;&#1072;&#1083;&#1086;&#1077; Linux - Russian
Linux Pequeño Maldito - Spanish

Pretty cool huh?

-edit- hmmm...I could see the oriental languages just fine when I pasted them, they converted to numbers when it posted...wierd

It would be fine, but we really name DamnSmallLinux as:
Malditamente Pequeño Linux

Just a little bit more lovely  :p
