Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu How surprised would you be, if I walked up to you and told you that every human needs oxygen to survive? I'm assuming that you wouldn't at all be surprised - you might start feeling a little uneasy that a random stranger walked up to you with such a crazy question, but you wouldn't be surprised by the we-need-oxygen fact. Apparently, people are surprised that Ubuntu is not a democracy.

Irritatingly enough, I'm finding myself agreeing with you.

The idea that people follow FOSS projects in a similar way to religions is something that I'd never quite thought about before, but at the same time makes sense when you think about it.

Religion is probably the second most popular comparison for analogies next to cars. There are points it's extremely accurate on.
