Heh. But it is true .. in a corporate environment, it's a lot more
professional to say 'I'm running Ubuntu 7.10" rather than "I'm running
Gutsy Gibbon" ... this presumes calls from end-users. Even so,
telling the CEO "we have to replace that Gutsy Gibbon database server"
doesn't sound too good, either. :-)
