Japan is weird. We know that. Linux fanatics are weird. We know that, too.

When you combine the two, you get "Ubunchu," a romantic comedy manga about the joys of running Ubuntu on your computer. No, really. You do.

Personally, I'm waiting for the ero doujins based on the manga. I've got a few good titles I could suggest, like "modprobe -v aic7xxx."
Since I apparently have a readership that ranges from raw milk conspiracy theorists to famous science fiction authors, does this mean that I could maybe get a gig as a science fiction journalist? I'd be good at it. I'd certainly be better than the folks at io9. I mean, if I happen to land an exclusive interview, even a short one, with the man who might produce a new movie adaption of Dune I will not ask dumb questions like "Are they still going to have the blue spice-eye?"

There is such a thing as a stupid question, and that is one of them. Especially when you've got like THREE questions and that's what you come up with.

I know, most of io9 is crap, just like Wired. I hate them both, but they churn out a nugget of good journalism or interesting stories enough that I check them every now and then. I don't know what's worse. Their atrocious attempts at being the Rolling Stone magazine of their respective fields or that I care enough to check them out in spite of their ability to piss me off.
