ccleaner - crap cleaner irony

pretty hilarious, crap cleaner (ccleaner) is supposed to remove unwanted crap that is taking up space or slowing down your machine, but during its own installation it asks you if you want to install the yahoo toolbar in your browser.

hilarious =)

how did ubuntu linux get so popular so quickly?

What was the reason for Ubuntu's stunning success? Firstly, the project was created by Mark Shuttleworth, a charismatic South African multimillionaire, a former Debian developer and the world's second space tourist, whose company, the Isle of Man-based Canonical Ltd, is currently financing the project. Secondly, Ubuntu had learnt from the mistakes of other similar projects and avoided them from the start - it created an excellent web-based infrastructure with a Wiki-style documentation, creative bug-reporting facility, and professional approach to the end users. And thirdly, thanks to its wealthy founder, Ubuntu has been able to ship free CDs to all interested users, thus contributing to the rapid spread of the distribution.
