Linus isn't so much disgusting as he is slightly overweight.

Ballmer is just ghoulish.

Sorry to hear about your flu, Tom. Get well soon!

That photo of Steve must have been taken in happier days, as he's now quite gaunt. Much as I'm not a fan of his, I wish him the best and hope he gets healthier.

GrannyGeek:  Thanks for your wishes!  And about Steve Jobs, I've seen those recent pictures too.  I think I read he might need a liver transplant.  I also hope he gets better soon.

EFG: Edited for content.  See the "Hook up with Zenwalk" thread.

EFG:  I agree about Linus, he's not disgusting ... for me it's the whole speedo thing.  It could be a European deal.

It is; also true of 'Europeanized' countries such as Brazil.

As far as Steve goes, I think it might be fun to hang out with him, though I wouldn't want to play dodge-chair.

The problem with Steve Ballmer is that his face (and especially nasal architecture) remind me of:

What's the problem, man? They're just Microsoft coders on a debugging run ...


@Tom:  glad to see you're keeping your spirits up with humor.

My vote:

Linux - despite Torvald's questionable attire - and lack of geeky neurotic slimness - anyone willing to do that kind of public performance has got to be a nut job or a genius who doesn't care what people think. (Maybe he's both.)

And why can't I help imagine that the pool below him is ice-cold water filled with penguins?
