+<h2>How many GNU/Linux users are needed to change a light bulb?</h2>
+1 to post a thread in a mailing list telling the bulb has burnt.
+1 to suggest to try to turn the lamp on through command lines.
+1 to complain that the user broke the thread.
+1 to ask what new bulb will he install.
+1 to advice that we shouldn't use the word burn for meaning a broken
+lightbulb, because it would mean that the bulb was set on fire and that it
+would be right to say that the bulb broke due to an excess of electrical
+25 to suggest to install all the kinds of existing and imaginable
+5 who say that the burnt bulb is an upstream issue that doesn't belong to
+the distro. There's an open bug on the bulb's developer mail list.
+1 noob to suggest to install a Microsoft lightbulb.
+250 to flood the noob's mail address.
+300 to say that a Microsoft lightbulb would turn blue and that you'd had to
+reboot continuously to get back to normal.
+1 former linux user who still frequents the forum, to suggest to install an
+Apple iBulb, which has a fresh and innovating design and it costs 250 $.
+20 to say that iBulbs aren't free, and that they have less functions than a
+20 times cheaper standard lightbulb.
+15 to suggest to install a national lightbulb.
+30 to say that national lightbulbs are crippled remasters of foreign
+lightbulbs and that they don't bring nothing new.
+23 to argue if it must be a white or a transparent bulb.
+1 to remiind everyone that the right name is GNU/Lightbulb.
+1 to say that lightbulbs are a Winbugs users thing and that real Linux
+users aren't afraid of the dark.
+1 to announce finally which will be the model of the installed bulb.
+217 to discard the chosen model and suggest another.
+6 to complain that the chosen lightbulb has propietary elements, and that
+another should be used.
+20 to say that a 100% free bulb, isn't compatible with the lamp switch.
+The same previous 6, to suggest to change the switch for a compatible one.
+1 to yell out: âSTOP ARGUING AND CHANGE THAT LIGHTBULB FOR GOD'S SAKE!â
+350 to ask the previous user what God is he talking about, and that if he
+has scientific proofs of His existence.
+1 to explain how electricity works and why a light bulb is inefficient.
+1 to say that we can't trust in corporation-made bulbs and that we should
+trust in community-made bulbs.
+1 to post a link to an ODF file explaining how to build a lightbulb from
+14 to complain about the format of the previous file and asking to send it
+in txt or LaTeX.
+5 to say that they didn't like the taken decission and that they'll fork
+the house's electric installation and install a better lamp.
+1 to post a series of commands to put to change the lightbulb.
+1 to comment that he executed the commands and had an error message.
+1 to advice that the commands must be executed as root
+The father of the first user, who while everyone were discussing, he went
+to the shop and bought the cheapest lightbulb.
