View Full Version : A new religion?!?

09-28-2001, 07:28 AM
I am going to register a new religion!

I just have to get 20 or more "followers".
At least that's the law here in the cold Finland.

If you have any ideas for the rules etc. just put 'em here!

I'm a Windows user myself, but I can't stand it anymore :(

There is only one OS: Linux.
Worship your God: the great Tux!!!
Praise the holy messiah: Linus Torvalds!
Microsoft©®™ was the devils creation,
ment to corrupt people.

But it is a good idea....... Isn't it?

What's the clock? It's 9:51 AM in my time zone... If you ask someone like doubleanti, it'll be 7:51 or 6:51 (I can't really remember how far California is off from Michigan)

Does this board automaticly sensor the "rude" words?
Who needs that?

Sorry for misspelling...

So you're going to WORSHIP a tux...err... the penguin... wonderful. That's what we need a freakin religion for it. It's a hobby and a job for most of us that use it, why make it more than that?

The question is more like "why not"?
Okay, I'm a co-conspirator in this project and I've thought of some stuff...
Of course there are always people who say that Microsoft's virtual monopoly over PC-systems is a good thing, because it creates standards. That's all good and fine but when the standards go awry (C# for example) the users pay the toll. MS has created some pretty good standards (DirectX has consolidated the graphics pretty well), I will admit that much but are they open for normal people to know how they actually work beyond the MSDN documentation? No.
We who believe strongly in Open Source (GPL for example) are quite convinced about it and so the next logical step is of course religion. Maybe some Windows coder sacrifices are appropriate for the opening ceremony :D
(If you didn't get it already, it's more like a mind game than a real religion, we just might go ahead with it some day, the atheists we are...)

You might want to, cuz you'll probably generate flames one way or another...

What's wrong with C#?

I konw who you are, and where you live.
So don't anger me or my god... :D

And that's the holy truth
at least I think so :confused:

It means, that there's three of us now. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D
(Well I'm not sure about that other guy, but I'll blackmail him to join us). :rolleyes:

Do you have any ideas or something?
