(1). Linus' (The writter of the linux kernel) favorite programming editor is                   Microsoft Notepad.

(2). Linux® is commonly confused with LINUXOS,released by Linux Incorporated.

(3). Steve Ballmer (Microsoft) has called Linux a cancer on mankind.

      Linu Christ is believed to have run the Church of UNIX. Critics such as Pat
      Robertson contend that the X crosses out Christ.

(5). The bit-system was originally invented to make Linux®'s kernel-versions
       countable. Right now there's 64bit, since there are 2^64 different kernels.
       And the saga isn't even close to coming to an end.
