I’m currently running a new LiveCD within which resides the Linux operating system called NimbleX, and I’m writing this article with the Konqueror browser nestled deep within the LiveCD. The reason why this article is entitled “Irfan’s NimbleX” is because upon the startup of the OS, a voice says, “Welcome to Irfan’s NimbleX” in the voice of famed Star Trek and The Simpsons guest actor Stephen Hawking.

No, I’m not making it up.
Here’s JuK playing my Alice Cooper The Last Temptation CD mp3 rips. I think Sila bought the Marvel comics based on the album, written by Neil Gaiman and drawn by Michael Zulli.
And here’s Akregator reading the RSS feed of Hishgraphics weblog.
Obviously, this weblog requires the “Linux” category.
