I heard that Mac OS X 10.5 will come with a super secret inovation  
called "sudon't" which is an acronym for Super User Don't Do... it  
will use the new time travel thing to don't do stupid things as the  
super user. I heard this will be backported  to FreeBSD and then to  
Linux where it will finally enable Linux to reach the desktop. <g>
