I've been assimilated by Lisa and resistance was futile.

Post by day50 » Sun Dec 11, 2011 6:19 pm

The Linux Mint Borg aka “Lisa” is a cybernetically enhanced Linux Distribution, made up of bits and pieces multiple distros. Utilizing what can only be described as a hived mind system, Linux Mint's small group of talented developers and contributors were able to link a vast amount of code to make Linux Mint 12 code name Lisa irresistible to us common users. The group operated, solely, towards fulfilling one purpose: to "add technological distinctiveness of other Linux species" in pursuit of their view of perfection. I used the live dvd for an evening. The next morning my wife (Borg Queen) mentioned that while sleeping I was mumbling, “yeah, Duck Duck Go!!” I was unaware of my metamorphosis. What happened next was.. I started thinking I don't need Google Earth, I can use Flash Earth and so on. If anyone has a method to reverse my assimilation, please don't PM me. I like what Lisa has done to me. I have used Linux since 2004 and she's the best system I have used! I only hope in the future, she will have many children and grand children. As the Mint man said “if it's not broke don't fix it.” 8)

Resistance is Futile

Welcome to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
