Humor That was my first reaction when I saw the headline. Should Hannah Montana and Linux even be allowed to be in the same sentence? Someone apparently thinks so. According to IT Knowledge Exchange, Hannah Montana Linux, obviously designed with Hannah Montana fans in mind, emerged recently on Twitter, being tweeted and re-tweeted so many times. It's been hosted at SourceForge and is currently available for download, but you had probably get your copy quickly because I'm sure the long, iron arm of Disney will find out about this project and quickly shut it down. Big companies are often touchy about their trademarks.

What the heck?

EDIT: It looks like the HML website is already down, no doubt pwned by Disney.

The sourceforge page is still there, but without the files:

Edit: the files were there this morning ...

Sister Distribution: Miley Cyrus Linux

Hannah Montana Linux will implement KDE4 as their default desktop, complete with hot pink (hair) extensions and neon wallpapers. In anticipation of this, and to appeal to her older, more post-pubescent fans, I will announce a sister distribution based on the 'less flashy' GNOME desktop called Miley Cyrus Linux.

Miley Cyrus Linux will possesses the wisdom of Gertrude Stein, the wit of Cathy Guisewite, the tenacity of Nina Totenberg, the common sense of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and the down-to-earth good looks of Eleanor Roosevelt

But can I dual boot and have the best of both worlds?

Top 5 Celebrity Linux Distros
----------------------------------------

5. Obama Linux - After boot-up, automatically erases history file. Startup sound is an Angelic Choir descending from heaven. Cost $2,000,000,000,000

4. ARod Linux - best permormance numbers available, but may reboot under heavy load. Missing "nice" command. Due to memory problems, may commence swapping periodically.

3. Cheney Linux - secretly logs all activity. Comes with water-proof keyboard. Cannot be uninstalled.

2. Palin Linux - "read" command disabled. All output automatically piped through "more". May shutdown without warning.

1. Eugenia Linux - no command interpreter installed.

But Chuck Norris Linux would be impossible to use.

First thing after install, Chuck Norris Linux would roundhouse-kick your CPU; causing the CPU to explode into flames with the heat of a thousand suns.

Hows about OpenBSD, Bruce Schneier edition? - So secure that you can't use it.

Through the random rant of Ballmer he made a very profound statement as to the nature of success or failure in the operating system market.

The quotation attributed to Gates only exists in the mind of the village idiot along with the same person who runs around claiming that Al Gore claimed he invented the internet.

Regarding Bill Gates and the internet - nice to see you dropped the context. I might as well dig up something from your past and claim, "ooh, ooh!, you got it wrong!"
