    The Linux Counter

    For all of you Linux fans out there (like me ) check this site out http://counter.li.org/ and get counted as a linux user!

    I'm user number 126776
    OS: Linux Mandrake 9.0
    Compiler: gcc-3.2
    Languages: C, C++, Java

    If you go flying back through time and you see somebody else flying forward into the future, it's probably best to avoid eye contact.

    I disagree, I think it's more of a "See?? Linux is important and liked!! Look at this pretty counter!!!!! It doesn't lie!!!" type thing.

    What does that have to do with "The Linux Counter"? If you don't like it don't post.

    Ok it seems to me that you don't agree with Barjor's reponse, so if this is not it, would you mind explaining what it IS?

    Exactly, "The Linux Counter" just does what it says. It counts Linii. If the population levels get too low in some part of the world the National Society for the Prevention of Linux Apathy can send in some highly fertile, fully grown Linuii to boost the local levels. It's all in the name of preserving wildlife.
