Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

The author's favorite celebrity is Rebecca Black, who happens to be 15. I'm guessing he/she is around the same age?

Kids these days. Wow...

Maybe I'm in denial, but I still refuse to believe that the whole "brony" thing is anything other than hipster-irony gone overboard. Basically, the Web 2.0 equivalent of the "Lumber Cartel" or "Cabal" jokes from Usenet (conspiracy theories that people would ironically pretend to believe in).

It is a bit of a joke distro that has been around for a while.

I don't get the Brony thing at all, but it at least seems mostly harmless... Assuming these guys don't get into fistfights over which pony is more awesome, or whatever.

One would certainly hope so - or least hope that he/she meant "favorite" in an ironic sense... I honestly have a hard time believing that there are any genuine Rebecca Black fans out there.

Then again, back in 2003-2004 I worked with a guy in his early 20s who was practically obsessed with Miley Cyrus...
