A kernal so oftenly mistaken for an operating system on urbandictionary.com. Most nerds will cream whenever linux is mentioned in a conversation and will get go super sayian whenever it is insulted. Most people do not actually know what linux is (and from the definitions on this site it seems to be less than i thought) and probably wouldent care if it overthrew Microsoft (then again, why would they?)
Sure linux might be liek 1000000 times better than anything microsoft has ever/will ever come up with... but nobody cares.
linux > windows
fresh air >>> linux
