Knowing that I use Linux, a friend sent this to me. I found it fall down 
funny, hope you do as well.

...... To this end, I have decided to publish the top ten signs that 
your son is a hacker. I advise any parents toread this read list 
carefully and if their son matches the profile, they should take 

*8. Is your son obsessed with "Lunix"?

__BSD <http://www.bsd.org/>_, _Lunix <http://www.lunix.com/>_, _Debian 
<http://www.debian.org/>_and _Mandrake <http://www.mandrake.com/>_are 
all versions of an _illegal hacker operation system 
<http://www.lunix.com/>_, invented by a _Soviet computer hacker 
<http://www.goldeneye.com/julian/boris.html>_named Linyos Torovoltos, 
before the Russians lost the Cold War. It is based on a program called " 
_xenix <http://www.xenix.org/>_", which was written by _Microsoft 
<http://www.microsoft.com/>_for the _US government 
<http://www.usflag.org/>_. These programs are used by hackers to break 
into other people's computer systems to steal credit card numbers. They 
may also be used to break into people's stereos to steal their music, 
using the "mp3" program. Torovoltos is a notorious hacker, responsible 
for writing many hacker programs, such as "telnet", which is used by 
hackers to connect to machines on the internet without using a 
_telephone <http://www.att.net/>_.

Your son may try to install " _lunix <http://www.lunix.com/>_" on your 
hard drive. If he is careful, you may not notice its presence, however, 
_lunix <http://www.lunix.com/>_is a capricious beast, and if handled 
incorrectly, your son may damage your computer, and even break it 
completely by deleting Windows, at which point you will have to have 
your computer repaired by a _professional 

If you see the word "LILO" during your windows startup (just after you 
turn the machine on), your son has installed _lunix 
<http://www.lunix.com/>_. In order to get rid of it, you will have to 
send your computer back to the manufacturer, and have them fit a new 
hard drive. _Lunix <http://www.lunix.com/>_ is extremely dangerous 
software, and cannot be removed without destroying part of your hard 
disk surface.
