Where is #! on the Linux world map?

Blogger Dedoimedo has created a "Linux world map" that's pretty interesting/funny.  See if you can find #! on the map, which is posted  - http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/linux-world-map.html

What do you think - Did Dedoimedo get his geography right?

Pretty inventive, aside from the "Communist Empire" tag which I don't get at all.

Re: Where is #! on the Linux world map?

Another geniality by dedoimedo. My two favorites the Noob Desert (we all have been there), it was a long road (and a little swim) to the Principality big_smile... the other one is the Forbidden Land of Gentoo lol... genius

Re: Where is #! on the Linux world map?

Now that #! is Debian based instead of Ubuntu, it should have probably gone on the other side of GCEU. Maybe not in the FOSS Channel, but much closer to Debian proper.

Re: Where is #! on the Linux world map?

I also note that the Principality of Crunchbang consists of two separate islands.  I assume that one is The Isle of Xfce and the other is Openbox Island.  My question now is - which is the larger of the two?  And even if one is larger in size - which is more heavily populated?

Yea, but why "Communist"? The shape of the empire is reminiscent of Russia; and I get perhaps the totalitarian/Napoleonic overtones (Shuttleworth!); but I don't see how, in caricature, Ubuntu is more/less communist than the other distros.

I am pretty sure it is supposed to be quite tongue-in-cheek, I would not waste too much time trying to decipher it. wink

To me, this is the notion of "Linux for human beings" under the name of "community" strive for personal goals. Dominance over freedom (libre). Equality (same UI [unity - the word itself references community]) for everyone, disencouraging individuallity. UbuntuOne, same idea of unity, centralisation.

Perhaps its just me, but I think the connection is there.

Re: Where is #! on the Linux world map?

Of course the Debian Republic is closer to us than it looks on the map:  Just sail west across the GNU Ocean.  (Unless it's a Flat Earth?)

My biggest beef is our proximity to the Android Sea...

Maybe the two islands of CrunchBang are an allusion to its UK origin?

for me linux, and not just ubuntu, is all about communism. Sharing your ideas, your configurations, tips, tricks.

Re: Where is #! on the Linux world map?

Is it me?  or does the Principality of Crunchbang look like a monkey (face) talking to a squirrel.

Also, "mount chroot" is cool.

Re: Where is #! on the Linux world map?

I loved how the Gnome Hills divide the Ubuntu Empre from Mint State, how Red Hat Commonwealth shares island with Independent Republic of Fedora! The forbidden land of Gentoo! big_smile

Mint State should be neighboring both the Ubuntu Empire and the Debian Republic and marked as "disputed territory" big_smile

How about a #! wallpaper version?

I hope it's OK I did that, and didn't harm any copyrights or sentiments.

Re: Where is #! on the Linux world map?

Startling news just came in! Aliens invaded planet Linudist - and started some strange terraforming on a couple of islands in the southern Android Sea!
