    Six Six Six, The kernel of the beast.
    Hell and fire was spawned to be released

    Boards blazed and reviewed codes were praised
    As they start to try, hands held to the sky
    In the night, the coffee is burning hot
    The commit has begun, Linus work is done

        No, because he has already sent the beast with wrath.
        — because he knows the time is short.

        In any case, let him who have understanding
        reckon the kernel of the beast;
        for it is a human number;
        not a semver number. So don’t worry about it. \

        yieeeeeeaaaaaaaahhh

            If you see the word “LILO” during your windows startup (just after you turn the machine on), your son has installed lunix.

            Wow, that’s a blast from the past! Completely forgot that LILO used to be a thing.

              I remember dealing with migrating from LILO to GRUB when I was in high school, maybe 2005ish? It’s been a while. I remember the migration from ipchains to iptables, too (which is happening again now with the iptables to nftables migration)

              I used Ubuntu at the time… It was a great distro back then. I only had dial-up so couldn’t download large files easily, and Canonical or one of their local partners would mail you a CD for free regardless of where you lived in the world. I think that helped a LOT of people get into Linux.

                Similar experiences here. I remember waiting for the free CDs bundles with monthly magzines, and add then I’d the CD as a mirror in my repos to update my packages lol

                  Ubuntu was the distribution that had me switch from dual-booting with Windows as default to dual-booting with Linux as default.

                  I also remember ordering an actual Ubuntu disc, with the extra donation to fund the mailing for free program.

                  Now years later after lots of distro-hopping I just run Ubuntu LTS, and stay on the very boring LTS branch.

            Man I’ve seen derivatives of this stuff, but this must be the OG post - thanks for that!

            I thought the whole Lunix thing came from the elite hacker JEFF.K!!!11 so I’m chuffed there’s another level to this!

              It’s funny because the first time I read it, I thought it was serious and was just written by a tech-illiterate parent. Saying that Comet Cursor and Bonzi Buddy are hacker software kinda gives away that it’s just satire though.

              oh I guess that’s also something that younger people may not know about… In the late 1990s / early 2000s, it wasn’t uncommon for people to install spyware to get things like custom mouse cursors, emoticons, and purple gorillas that help you navigate the web.

      I had been trying out Linux and finally decided to install it to my ssd. The timing ended up such that I got the wifi issues on the new install but not my old one, and they basically make the OS unusable. I didn’t realise any of this and am new so did heaps of reinstalling and searching trying to figure out what had gone wrong since it was all fine when it was installed on my HDD.

      I finally found some forum posts and bug reports about this after wasting a day assuming it was something I’d done wrong 😂.

      Gonna stick to lts kernel from now on I think. 6.6.6 seemed pretty fitting to me, even if it was 6.6.5 that actually broke it.

    I’m not installing this… Scary. Will wait for 6.6.7 in a few days. :)

        Lol, I really thought that this is satirical 😂 but now it seems so real, I’m confused.

          It kind of makes sense. First I’ve ever heard about Ubuntu Christian Edition as well, but it seems to mostly be set up with filtering in mind, with the DNS tools and such. Add in productivity software aimed at preaching I guess, and you have a “safe” OS for kids and the laptop hooked up to the projector at a church.
