Which Software Personality Would Sing These Lyrics?
« on: January 11, 2008, 07:04:42 PM »
Ok - just for fun, which major software personality could you imagine singing these lyrics?  ;D

Quote
Now I have you deep inside my everlasting grasp
The seven bloody gates of Hell
Is where you'll live your last

Warriors from Hell's domain
Will bring you to your death
The flames of Hades burning strong
Your soul shall never rest

The gates of Hell lie waiting as you see
Theres no price to pay just follow me
I can take your lost soul from the grave
Jesus knows your soul can not be saved

(From Slayer's "Hell Awaits")

I've put up probably the top best know personalities along with some extreme dichotomies. ;)

Slow Down Music - Where I commit thought crimes...

Freedom is the right to be wrong, not the right to do wrong. - John Diefenbaker

And it goes further - "Warriors from Hell's domain / Will bring you to your death" - that's obviously the horde of GPL zealots :)

I voted "Other", because this nowhere-to-run imagery somehow made me think of Larry Wall :)

mouser? Probably for the donationware thing ;D

Although the line "Jesus knows your soul can not be saved" points to Bill Gates, as every Microsoft users has been deemed guilty of "selling their soul to M$". The GPL zealots line is also very fitting for Mac zealots.

But of course, "There's no price to pay, just follow me" clash with the market concepts of Microsoft and Apple :)
