	Geez, my father is 58, I just can't imagine him as a Debian
Developer , that would be funny :)

	Hmmm, If I am not mistaken Unix is 31 years old, isn't it? I trust
Unix almost ultimately. If I need machines to assist my health in a
hospital one day, please install debian on them :) It would be disgusting
to see "module beep caused a General Protection Fault" in the screen of
the heart monitor ... someone wanting to make euthanasia legal should
consider installing MS products in life support systems :)
	I prefer the 31 year-old Unix than the 18 year old Microsoft
"equivalent" :)

	By the way, I am 24yr old. :)
