    haha! Love the Beer <-> Linux comparisons!! Even though started off considering this a light-hearted/humorous article, I was surprised that by the end, my knowledge of German Beers is considerably better!!

    Thanks for the educational article! I'm sure this will come in handy next time I'm in Europe!

    As it turns out there's a coke brand called Ubuntu. You can buy it in the UK and potentially elsewhere.

    Maybe the question should be what drinks distros would be?

    Ubuntu - coke
    Suse - beer
    Arch - whiskey
    Gentoo - scotch


    Oh, and no sane scottish person would call a scotch whiskey. :P

    Well, I'd say that Gentoo would be you choice of beverage, alcoholic or non-alcoholic,
    served in high/bowl/martini glass, wooden cup or a shooter, with or without a pinch
    of salt, sugar, cinnamon, combined with vegetable/fruit or clean, preheated or cooled.
    And if you change your mind it can be unshaken and poststirred. Enjoy.

It's the Gnome (or Cinnamon?) desktop among the Oettinger beers.
    But that would imply that Mint is the worst distro out there. Oettinger is the most disgusting beer in the whole of Germany, the only reason why so much of it is sold is that it only costs like 30 cents a bottle.

    You are right, Koorac. That's is not fair for Linux Mint. Instead of Oettinger, Linux Mint is the Krombacher of all Linux distributions. Krombacher is the second best selling beer in Germany. It is not cheap stuff, but good standard beer that tastes well for a large majority of consumers. Do you agree?

    Krombacher is the second most popular DE beer in terms of quantity sold? Wow, I'm not a fan of that nor Oettinger... At least I only have 31 hours until having good Weißbier und Weißwurst in MUC.
