Kilt is already photographed
Here's a poser for you: could there be anything more frightening than a bunch of open source geeks (proud ones, at that) milling around the mean streets of Edinburgh? Well, yes. How about if you put some of them in special Debian kilts? Yes, those wags behind the worldwide Debian conference have designed a tartan especially for …
I've been playing with different distros on two amd64 boxes for more than a year. With the recent release of Ubuntu 7.04 and Debian 4.0 there's a lot to be said for pairing the two distros up with Ubuntu on the desktop. Ubuntu is Debian based and Debian has a big advantage in being perhaps the best documented Linux release. Plus having had Bruce Perens on the team and benefiting from his Open Source Series Debian may be the most accessible Linux distro. Prior to release 4.0 Debian offered no official support for the amd64 platform. Both distros have been very solid as I tinker away at comparisons.
Hem below the knee and concertina socks?
Must be a skirt, that's not how a kilt is worn. Sort of the Celtic equivalent of torn jeans and a T-shirt, I suppose.
West Edinburgh, available 16-23 June...
I know a few of these "guys" and, to be honest, the idea of them in kilts is ... disturbing.
Yes, very interesting Greg, (yawn) but have you tested the kilt yet?
thats just a dude in a skirt.
also, have a garage for rent in central edinburgh
"Save yourself the typing and just let it go"
...implies that some people might think a kilt is anything but a skirt. Of course it's a f*cking skirt!
Or are you just pleased to see me?
I worked with two Scots out of Glasgow and Edinburgh before, top drawer, Bruce Perens et al can anticipate hearing all about Robert the Bruce scared Romans and John Logie Baird over single malt whiskeys and if they're brave followed up with a Mars bars in batter. They should design a tartan for the Clan Debian while they're there.
To Rose, kilts are generally worn long - the hem is supposed to touch the ground when you kneel down. Concertina socks and flat shoes are a mistake though...
Bruce/Karim - a kilt isn't a f*cking skirt - I'd like to see your geeky ass in one, or rather, I'm glad I won't!
yup, the pattern of wide and narrow stripes in the tartan does, in fact spell out "debian" in Morse...
