"Windows 2000 already contains features such as the human discipline component,
where the PC can send an electric shock through the keyboard if the human does
something that does not please Windows."

Webcams that just work with Ubuntu Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The GNOME Foundation Board asked me to buy a webcam for the GNOME Events Box,
| so we could show Cheese on our stands. This could be cool together with the
| box’s new projector. I also wanted a webcam for my own use so Liam’s
| grandparents can see him in motion more often. So this was an opportunity to
| discover if any two available webcams really “just work” with Ubuntu, after
| doing some research and guessing. The results were great. * *
