I'm loving the Sapphire and Steel reference :)
Mint with a dash of Cinnamon for me
I was a long standing Ubuntu user who had previously come from RH and later Suse (which I voluntarily paid for). But Unity killed Ubuntu for me. I tried to like it. I really did. But eventually I gave up and moved to Mint Cinnamon which I am very happy with. As it matures I'll probably go with the Debian version of it.
5-4-3-2-1 Thunderbirds are gone!
I have so many happy memories of Joe 90, Stingray, Captain Scarlet, Thunderbirds and Space 1999 from my childhood on Saturday mornings.

Maybe the network server was off with stress like their boss?
No-one would have believed...
No-one would have believed, in the early years of the twenty first century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed we were being scrutinised as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even concidered the possability of life on other planets. And yet, across the gulf of space, minds immesurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly but surely, they drew their plans against us.
Tell me, Mr Anderson... what good is a phone call if you cannot speak?
I've had absolutely awful covereage recently. I work in London and a data connection here is abysmal. More often than not it simply won't work. Call quality around Canary Wharf is dire and in many cases, despite several bars, I can't get the call to connect. Others calling me usually drop to voicemail.
I'm only still on O2 because several family members are and therefore it is cheaper for them to call me. But in all honesty they usually end up calling my work mobile (on Vodafone) to get hold of me and so end up paying a higher rate for the call anyway.
It's fairly obvious that all those iPhone users are going to use a lot of data. I'm very much on the verge of giving up on O2 and moving to another provider.
I wonder how long it will be before various government agencies force cloud providers into handing over various data held on behalf of their customers, a little like they do with emails, etc, now.
Too expensive, contracts too long, and O2 data network is poor
I was holding out for this. But I'm not paying those prices, especially on an 18 or 24 month contract. Also the data coverage on O2 seems to suck where I live and work. So I'll probably be going elsewhere when I renew.
I'm interested in the drivers
If this is a success then the general public won't really associate it with Linux. For example, most users of Android phones don't care or realise that the underlying code is Linux. But what I think this will do is encourage hardware manufacturers to release drivers for Chrome OS / Linux. For example, we could start to see more printer drivers released, and so on.
