GNU/Linux for cavemen

While working two jobs and trying (“trying” is the key word at this point) to keep up with GNU/Linux developments, something that crossed the ol’ radar was this article which appeared on LXer.com a few days ago, but originally came from The Inquirer.

Thanks to Dr. John — not the musician, although I can’t be sure — he whipped PCLinuxOS onto box he threw together (so says the story) with a Celeron D 2.8 MHz processor. A half-hour later, even keeping the clock running while going to the bathroom, he had Linux up and running. I guess they don’t call him a doctor for nothing . . .

Way to go, Doc! I guess Dr. John showed us “journos” that Linux is easy to install. But then, some of us in the field already knew this and we’re doing our damnedest to spread the gospel.
