Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”

Quick, name the author of that quote.

Albert Einstein, very good.

OK, so I’m working on a survey. In this survey, people are asked to put in a request for a Linux port of an application that is currently Windows-only. This is in hopes that we can help the Linux movement a little by porting the apps that keep people from moving to Linux. Makes sense, right?

Now, keep in mind that the idea is that they request an application that is currently WINDOWS ONLY.

I got a request for LINUX.

*blank stare*

I saw another for KDE.

Another requested the GIMP. I had a few for THUNDERBIRD. Then there were some for AUDACITY, COURIER-IMAP, FIREFOX, MYTHTV. MYSQL? Is this truly beyond that many people?

What’s also astounding is the number of Microsoft applications requested. Yep, that’ll sure happen.

Oh, man. Does anyone know how much it would run me to start up a worm farm?
