Re-spinning famous quotes: Linux and Cancer.

SweatyI had this thought whilst wandering down to the pub last night. It’s a very pleasant walk on a warm evening; through leafy unmade lanes in the south of Farnham and has, on a number of occasions, been inspirational.

On my jolly jaunt I was pondering the usefulness (or not) of Mono. As regular readers will know, I don’t particularly like it. There are too many ifs and butts and “unknown unknowns” with Mono for my taste. And, quite honestly, it doesn’t give me anything I need that I can’t get elsewhere.

And I was also recalling Ballmer’s famous quote about Linux and cancer.

The strange thing is, replace just one word in the quote and it makes perfect sense to me:

Linux Mono is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches.

Has anyone else got any good re-spun quotes that would be more applicable than the original?
