I'm trying to install Debian in a blueberry iMac. Wow, that's an interesting experience. Everyone who complain about how difficult it is to install Linux should be forc^H^H^H^Hencouraged to try an iMac. >:)

I also realized that Conectiva is a terribly bad name for spoofs. Think of "Red Hat", and you immediately envision dozens of funny names: Red Rat. Mad Rat. Mad Hatter. Pinky Rat. Red Herring, whatever. Basically anything with a color and an article of clothing would work. Now Conectiva doesn't sound like anything that would inspire a joke. I've made a spoof of the old Conectiva Linux box but in that case I just replaced the word "Conectiva" for "South Park" and the Conectiva spoofing was in the box design and typefaces. Too bad these Conectiva boxes have such a distinctive, easily spoofable design, but a name that can't be distorted into something recognizable :\

I'm now working in the same room of Alfredo Kojima of WindowMaker fame. Wow, when I see all those women around him, the shiny cars and everything, I finally decided that I must write a window manager!
