    in case you wonder, the Portuguese words go:

    Mussum Lives! announces early:
    Person of the Year 2020

    "Keanu Reeves" sounds like "que ano horrível" = "what a horrible year!", more so with late comedian Mussum's signature pronunciation (horrívis)

    .oO wouldn't it be nice if people who maintain Free Software packages would devote to software freedom concerns at least the same attention, interest and willingness to change that they devote to people who claim to be offended by certain words?

    wow, crazy times!  I wish for more attention to software freedom concerns by Free Software maintainers, and I get criticism for supposedly dismissing the pain that others feel for other offenses imposed on them.  so much for wishing for higher standards...

    .oO Linux, besides naming an operating system kernel, is an African word that means "I am what I am because I stand on the shoulders of a giant #GNU"
