Nat Friedman, the company's vice president of Linux desktop engineering, showed Novell Linux Desktop 10 playing videos and MP3 music files, and exchanging music and photos with an iPod and a digital camera, in a keynote presentation at the Solutions Linux conference and trade show on the outskirts of Paris.

...and lo, what could have been an interesting discussion turns into yet another pointless Gnome vs KDE trolling session.

But I guess I should at least treat it for what it is, and as everybody knows, no good trolling session is complete without a reference to Hitler.

So here goes: the situation we're in right now is like Europe in 1939. The Evil Empire has conquered 95% of the territory.

We've got the Soviets (whose philosophy is to many almost as abhorent as the Nazis') fighting them on one side, and just about holding their own (their army being funded principally by the sale of iPods).

But on the other side, Britain and France, who have squabbled for centuries over whose country is better, have finally alli-- oh, wait. Britain and France are *still* squabbling.

Well that's Europe f*cked then, isn't it.
