I thoroughly enjoyed this post at

The Top 10 things a Linux distribution might be called, if it were released by Microsoft:

10. Seattle’s Best.

9. Breakable Linux.

8. The best thing Microsoft ever came up with.

7. Open Windows.

6. Something that will never happen.

5. Closed open source.

4. Steve Ballmer’s nightmare.

3. Blue Screen Linux.

2. A distro we’ll never use.


Personally, I favor #2, 3, 5, 7 and 9. I think my favorite among those would have to be #7: Open Windows. Number 10 (Seattle’s Best) sounds like a brand of Coffee . . .

The comments page over at have a pretty healthy number of further recommendations for such a distribution . . .
