"Next time around, we'll get back to the techie stuff, I promise. But, this is something I've got to do. Maybe it's the season. Maybe it's because I've been known to help out the old guy from time to time by slipping on the red suit and offering up a hearty "Ho Ho Ho". Maybe it's because I think I've come up with a way to add a little extra stuffing to the stockings without spending a whole lot more cash. Or, maybe it's just cause I'm a Linux guy and I'm okay; I tweak my OS and it's really all play."
"Sorry about that last part. I don't know what came over me. Anyhow, the more I think about this, the more I think it is an excellent idea. After hanging out with me in the SysAdmin's Corner for the last year (or perhaps spending some time with François and Chef Marcel at the restaurant), I can't help but think that you are the people to share this crazy idea with."
"This year, why not give the gift of Linux for Christmas or Hannukah? Sure, I admit it: When your loved ones see a Linux CD in with the rest of their gifts, they might look at you as though you are a little bit strange. Then again, don't they already think that?"
