    Creative Challenge to kick off the new year

    It's new year's day, and people all over will be crafting lists of things they plan to do in the coming year for personal edification (most of which will be thrown by the wayside before we even hit February).

    Instead of asking what everyone is resolving for the year, I thought I'd challenge your hangover-laden dendrites to a challenge:

    A Linux- (or even distro-) related haiku.

    I'll start the bidding with the one I wrote while in the datacenter just a few short minutes ago...

    Well, taking Bill out might qualify it as "about Linux" in many circles...

    psst.

    I think a haiku is supposed to be in the following form:

    5 syllables
    7 syllables
    5 syllables

    As in:
    *nix is new to me
    There is so much I can see
    cause I have source tree

    I haven't the slightest idea of what you're talking about.



    Well, you're right, but the overall principle is still valid. It's like a standard, it describes how it's supposed to be, but nobody actually abides by it.
