Maybe he started life on a redhat photo shoot? Maybe, just MAYBE redhat actually have copyright on that photo and can add winging off with it to their list of "shit we're going to kick SCO's arses for".

I'm fairly certain this is supposed to be a humor submission. I have a few ideas as it seems that all of his requirements seem to contradict each other. For instance Microsoft Mail servers (closed technology), Open Source Management Software (open technology), and SCO server authentication (litigious technology). Therefore maybe this "famous person" doesn't exist. Just a theory, but I would be interested to know what it is all about either way.

I make myself a not bad living as a system administrator and general techie for hire when the need dictates. I know basic HTML (I truly believe it's become an artists medium, and haven't bothered to learn more than the basics). I can code if four or five of the popular languages, as well as being good enough with most of the common OSes you might find, including several shades of Windows, several flavors of unix (free and commercial), and the macOS.

Tourist Guy (3, Funny)

big_debacle (413628) | more than 10 years ago | (#6877568)

I'm glad to see he escaped the World Trade Center in one piece. And it seems as though he's cleaned himself up and gotten a job...or two...or three.

And also... (1)

slebog (609847) | more than 10 years ago | (#6877569)

Judging from the ones I know, the best looking geek in IT too.

He can play with my patch panel any day...

rei_slashdot (558039) | more than 10 years ago | (#6877573)

...the chinese kid with the headphones is the piece of stock photography that's overused. god, i hate him. can someone track him down?

They could at least pick a cute guy... (1)

slash. finally finds a way to write articles that force us to read the links!

It seemed like someone was stupid for a minute there and forgot his name...

Anybody got any ideas on what his name is?

My bets on Joe.
as in Shmoe.

It seems at Ipswitch his photo id name is
messaging.jpg.

Whereas at Plesk he is Mr. productPhoto.jpg.

Then over at SCO is the auth_guy.jpg.

All Hail AUTH_GUY!

He must a transvestite then if SCO is calling him an authentic guy. (No offense to the transvestite reading population, just seems to fit as far as SCO lying goes.)

Hmm. Anybody know his true identity?

sco has airbrushed his RED HAT out (-1, Redundant)

evil_one666 (664331) | more than 10 years ago | (#6877583)

It appears that he is holding a Red Hat in all the pictures apart from the one on the SCO site

SCO has airbrushed his RED HAT out- some significance perhaps...?

I see your wife also modded you up. That's the only scenario that makes sense for the '4'

Photodisc (5, Informative)

ChiaBen (160517) | more than 10 years ago | (#6877591)

Image number AA024508 [gettyimages.com] at Photodisc (creative.gettyimages.com, select Photodisc). Scroll down in a mozilla browser, the guy who wrote this page obviously didn't care about us _REAL_ users... just the SCO's of the world. ;)

That's all for now...

That 's not what's funny (5, Informative)

ckrause (42914) | more than 10 years ago | (#6877592)

I don't find it funny that three companies have by chance chosen the same stock photo. What's is completely ROTFFL funny is that fact that SCO uses the photo and tries to cover up the fact that it is a derivative work based on a red hat.

Why is Slashdot report on stock photos?

Did SCO pay to use that image? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#6877651)

I'd love to find out if SCO have paid to use that image, its been badly mangled perhaps to make it less obvious if it had been stolen.. god I would love it to turn out that they've been up to more nefarious behaviour..

Same guy? (-1)

SCO hiding something... (1, Funny)

pubjames (468013) | more than 10 years ago | (#6877659)


Notice how the SCO version has been badly retouched with a black stripe across the guys t-shirt?

They're hiding something... My guess is that he is wearing a Tux t-shirt...

It wouldn't be so bad... (1)

Craig Ringer (302899) | more than 10 years ago | (#6877665)

if it wasn't such an incredibly bad pic. Look at the colour in that thing - it's awful. Personally, if somebody tried to sell me a clipart image gallery with samples like that in it, I'd be rather offended.

That, or the web designers involved in using that pic hire the photoshop work out to lobotomized monkeys.

Hmm, no glasses, no zits, no 'programmers belly', unthreatening but serious, fit, and wearing a t-shirt that fits with no geek logo?

Sorry ladies, but if this guy exists he probably plays for the other side.
