OR maybe the LinuxFoundation needs money and thought a course taught by some celebrity will provide more of it. whatever, I think it's cool. ..but I'd rather have Bill Gates explaining how to set up an home network on Windows 95. Just for my private, perverse enjoyment.

Boot Sector Virus Shipped on German Laptops
