Pat V. seems to handle total control rather well and doesn't seem (from what I know) as militant as Stahlman. I like my dictators a little laid-back and with a sense of humor.

Do we really get a free PS3 for voting?

(not that I really need one, and I'm pretty sure it's a joke, but I'm just curious, y'know )

I hope it's not going to be Playstation 3 Slim - you can't install linux on it.
So how shall I give you my postal address so that you could send it to me?

Why isn't jeremy on the list? FYI, I voted for 'other', sorry brianL, it was just a slip of my 'any' key, which is right next to my "Don't Panic" key.

Funny, I would have put Mother Teresa on the list as one of the worst people in modern history.

I think Christopher Hitchens said it best, ""Mother Theresa spent her whole life saying (that what Calcutta needs) is a huge campaign against family planning. I mean, who comes to that conclusion who isn't a complete fanatic? She took - and I would directly say stole...millions and millions of dollars and spent all the money not on the poor, but on the building of nearly 200 convents in her own name around the world to glorify herself and to continue to spread the doctrine that, as she put it -- when she got her absurd Nobel Peace Prize -- that the main threat to world peace is abortion and contraception."

Eh, I wouldn't bother, even if it were a regular PS3. You don't get access to all the power of the hardware if you install Linux on it. IIRC it's because of some stupid patent issue

Anyways, I'd say: GLaDOS. She has a wonderful(ly awful, depending on how you look at it) sense of humor. Just don't forget the morality core!

(oh yeah, and don't forget to make sure the red emergency phone can't get disconnected )

I vote for Sauron.

I know some say Cthulhu would be better, but I like Sauron.
