don't know what to think about that: There was a guy, coming to us, and asking: "Oh, Debian, do you guys do key signing? Never mind, I don't have no fingerprints" and then he just disappeared (dangerous question, if say the word "keysinging" somewhere near to a Debian booth at a exhibition, you risk to get overwhelmed by DDs suddenly springing out of the floor, throwing their fingerprints and IDs at you).
for example: "Why are all those Linux guys have long hair?" (I answered, that it might have something to do with the fact, that the hair of humans tend to grow), or "Why is the graphical system on Linux in general instable?" (okay, that belongs more in the "Questions which you can not really answer" categorie). But, I'm (still) quite impressed to hear something like: "I'm learing Linux at school now, they gave us a Knoppix, but I would like to have a real operating system..."
The storm of "pack rats" (Thanks for the translation) has not yet arrived. CeBIT not as good visited as last year.
Hmmm... well... perhaps they are just sleeping a bit longer.

yes, I know how to use a dictionary. But it often fails to translate the "spirit" of a translation.
A question to the native english speakers: Do you understand me, if I write here, that we here at the CeBIT got visited by many Opossums?
Just got visited by a couple. She forced him to move from Gentoo to Debian, so he wouldn't spend that much time with his computer watching compile runs...
