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.
