You're right - they've announced unbreakable unbreakable linux, u^2 linux.

But then, you have heard that in the latest release of Sun's, er, Oracle's
java, they changed the identifier to read Oracle, rather than Sun
Microsystems, and for some idiot java (sorry, I repeat myself) reason, a
fair number of packages out there, including ALL VERSIONS OF ECLIPSE for
the last 3-4 years, break, because they can't find those magic words,
rather than just looking at versions...?
