OMG.

Finegan, I can't quite believe you made a website to counter a daft quizzes verdict based on a dubious Q & A process with little correlation to anything.

I was Apple DOS 3.1. I wasn't happy so I changed the very last option to something else and *ping* I was Slackware. Change it again and *ping* Windows XP.

Only someone who was given something bad like Palm OS or Windows 98SE would go and script a counter attack.

Oh but ... ah! I see. Bad luck Fin.

I got NetBSD. Not bad I suppose but in the words of Kirk, (adapted for this of course)

Not getting a Linux distro is like an open wound. I feel I have left the nobelest part of myself back there, and that test website.

Hey, I haven't seen this before. And I have to respond, because I just took this quiz, and I got 'Apple DOS 3.1'

I'm still picking myself up off the floor right now.

I mean...Apple DOS 3.1....did anyone else get this? Who are these guys? What are they on, for gawdsake?

Hell, I got amigaOS. What is that about? I've never even seen anything running amigaOS. In fact, I've never even met anyone whose ever seen anything running it. LOL. Could be worse, I could have gotten that bastard-child of an OS WindowsMe.

I saw GNU/Hurd there.

That was the first time I read this OS,
so I searched them through Google, and visited the homepage.
http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/hurd.html

To my surprise:
===================
The GNU Hurd is the GNU project's replacement for the Unix kernel. The Hurd is a collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux).
=============

Is it a coup for Linux ?
Will Debian not a GNU/Linux anymore but become fully GNU Debian ?
