    Linux itself, the kernel, the very heart of our beloved operating systems begins with humor: Linux kernel names (from Greased Weasel to Shuffling Zombie Juror, passing by Sheep on Meth and One Giant Leap for Frogkind)

    I love it when the kernel Kills things during the shutdown.

    My vague understanding is that Yama is a Buddhist deity. Or Underworld God.

    So maybe in there Yama is a Daemon?
    lol

    Actually looking into Python programming and I guess it's named after Monty Python.

    Not something from within the OS, still nice...

    How many GNU/Linux users are needed to change a light bulb?
    My favourites:

    • 1 to post a thread in a mailing list telling the bulb has burnt.
    • 1 to suggest to try to turn the lamp on through command lines.
    • 1 to advice that we shouldn't use the word burn for meaning a broken lightbulb, because it would mean that the bulb was set on fire and that it would be right to say that the bulb broke due to an excess of electrical current.
    • 25 to suggest to install all the kinds of existing and imaginable lightbulbs.
    • 5 who say that the burnt bulb is an upstream issue that doesn't belong to the distro. There's an open bug on the bulb's developer mail list.
    • 23 to argue if it must be a white or a transparent bulb.
    • 1 to remind everyone that the right name is GNU/Lightbulb.
    • 1 to say that lightbulbs are a Winbugs users thing and that real GNU/Linux users aren't afraid of the dark.
    • 6 to complain that the chosen lightbulb has propietary elements, and that another should be used.
    • 1 to yell out: “STOP ARGUING AND CHANGE THAT LIGHTBULB FOR GOD'S SAKE!”
    • 350 to ask the previous user what God is he talking about, and that if he has scientific proofs of His existence.
    • 1 to explain how electricity works and why a light bulb is inefficient.
    • 1 to say that we can't trust in corporation-made bulbs and that we should trust in community-made bulbs.
    • 1 to post a link to an ODF file explaining how to build a lightbulb from scratch.
    • 1 to comment that he executed the commands and had an error message.

    Don't forget:
    • 300 to say that a Microsoft lightbulb would turn blue and that you'd had to reboot continuously to get back to normal.
