n. Someone who displays an unusual or embarrasing amount of enthusiasm for Jesus.
This term was first used in the 1960's in reference to the growing movement of radical, unconventional Christians who often displayed hippie leanings.

n. An example of a freeware operating system. Idealogically beautiful, but practically a bit of a hassle, this fast-growing operating system is often used by computer programmers. In fact, almost all programmers that work for Microsoft do all their work on Linux boxes...hmm...
My impression of Linux is that it's vastly improved but still not as user-friendly as Windows. I continue to hope that it completely overthrows the "evil Microsoft empire" as a large triumph for the free software movement, but it's not going to do that anytime soon unless it cleans up (from a non-programmer standpoint) some of the difficulties of installing programs.
Keep on, brave penguin!
I know Linux has something to do with GNU, but I can't remember the exact relationship...
