OSNews, Generic OSes As here in Europe Christmas eve has already begun, we, the OSNews team, both editors and site maintainers, would like to wish all of our readers a very merry Christmas. May everyone be with the ones they love-- no matter one's nationality, religion, favourite operating system, favourite desktop environment, or whatever. Let us also hope the victims of the tsunami, the earthquake in Pakistan, and Gulf Coast hurricane, and all others who have suffered this year, have found comfort. Let's have a moment of silence on the 26th for them. Merry Christmas, people (and anyone who dares to sing "Last Christmas" in the comments gets banned for a week) !

Merry F*cking Christmas ...

What happened to christmas ?!?!
Have we all forgotten what christmas it really about?
We eat like we haven't eaten for weeks,
and in other parst of the world there is real hunger,
We buy present for millions of dollars,
and in other parst of the world, there are people without any money ...

Have we forgotten what christmas it supposed to be about?

Well, not really. The presents we bought were manufactured by poor little children from poor countries. Think about it. We're helping them earn some cash. Huray for us!

Yeah.... hooray for us ... NOT !
That would be even worse ...
To exploit them, to work for too little money,
so you can have your toys ...

The world would be a better place if there was no
money at all ... but unfortunately there is,
and only, because of greedy people who want to
be richter than others ... this world is sick:
infected with greedy people, people who don't care
about anything but themselves ...

Given the forum, I think it only appropriate that Linus tell us what Christmas is all about:
