Are you both idiots? That has "april fool's joke" written all over it. You can't tax something that's free. Duh.

The proposal is that a one-off tax will be levied on all Linux CDs or servers bundled with Linux. Downloads from US sites will be unaffected, but the spokesman admitted that "we are still working on an effective method of monitoring Internet downloads".
Ya right, this is a crock......LOL

Just after lunch, I had to go and get some nails from the hardware store. When I came out, my partner was listening to radio 2. She had heard the important news that both France and Germany where pulling out of the "Euro" and where both intending to adopt the £ sterling as their national currency.

They had even had some French and German "spokesmen" explaining how they intended to "lobby" the British government so that they didn't have to have a picture of the Queen on their version of "our" currency.

She related this in all seriousness, but looked "crestfallen" when I just asked her what the date was!

I saw the headline on slashdot, but figured it was written by A.F. Ools.
