I know that this article is four months old, but I feel this really needs to be shared.

Not surprising since that's the norm for tablets.  Linux will never make it onto the iPad, which is fine until iOS is no longer officially supported on your device.

Maybe Apple will then release a toolkit to get Linux running on unsupported devices. You never know, afterall, Apple did invent the idea that people have their own devices they can program by themselves. Wait...

a poem by my computer, Macintosh Vigilante
Macintosh amends a damned around the requested typewriter. Macintosh urges a scarce design. Macintosh postulates an autobiography. Macintosh tolls the solo variant. Why does a winter audience delay macintosh? The maker tosses macintosh. Beneath female suffers a double scum. How will a rat cube the heavier cricket? Macintosh calls a method. Can macintosh nest opposite the headache? Macintosh ties the wrong fairy. When can macintosh stem the land gang? Female aborts underneath macintosh. Inside macintosh waffles female. Next to macintosh worries a well.
