And if I'm not mistaken, Linux also clears up acne, cures male-pattern baldness, and increases sexual stamina.


That sentence is absolutely true, if you consider the first clause. :)

Linux also clears up acne, cures male-pattern baldness------snip

After I installed MX-14 to my kids laptop, (teenager), it really was amazing, but his acne also disappeared.
And my younger brothers, they use windows, both are younger then me, one being almost 15 years younger, any way they both , well the youngest is starting to go bald, the older one, but still younger then me, is bald,...any way they use Windows.
I have been using Linux for many years, never did use Windows, all though years ago, and still do use DOS, years ago msdos, but now "FreeDos", and then Unix,...anyway,
I do not have a trace of baldness. Not even much "gray", a little but at 62 that is not unusual, ...in fact my hair grows to much, to fast, tomorrow I have to go get another haircut,..
Also both my grandfathers, and my father went bald at fairly young ages. I am the only one in our family that use Linux, and I am the only male that is not going bald.
That sentence is absolutely true

So that is enough proof, for me , that your statement is true. :mrgreen:
I had never connected it with Linux, but sometimes I had been wondering why they all
went bald and I didn't, Now I know.

Male pattern baldness is inherited from the maternal side, not the paternal. Whether or not your father was bald has little or no bearing on whether you will be bald. Look rather at your maternal grandfather. Nothing is certain, however. My maternal grandfather was mostly bald, but I've never had any trace of it.

Keeping a dog/cat as a pet is fine with the caveat that your hardware might get damaged as reported on these forums:

Yeah, wait until those conures start chewing on wires, then they won't be that cute. They are compulsive chewers, more like little cute feathered rats, so you'll have to keep them away from dangerous wires for their own safety, or give them something that's more fun to destroy, like balsa wood.
