How About “May Apple Linux”

Ian‘s Linux adventures continue, which is interesting in itself. However, this reminded me of an item I saw yesterday on Hearst having threatened the Mandrake Linux folks into changing to Mandriva.

Who the hell cares about an obsolete, obscure cartoon character that happens to share the dictionary word for a plant with a respected Linux variant? Ian had the right word for it: Ludicrous.

It reminds me of a friend’s experience owning vader.com, when once upon a time the Lucas people called him. He told them there was nothing to stop him from using the Dutch word for “father” and they never bothered him again.
