How many Linux users are needed to change a light-bulb?

 1 to post a
thread in a forum telling the bulb has burnt. 1 to suggest to try to turn
the lamp on through command lines. 1 to complain that the user broke the
thread. 1 to ask what new bulb will he install. 1 to advice that we
shouldn't use the word burn for meaning a broken light-bulb, because it
would mean that the bulb was set on fire and that it wold be right to say
that the bulb broke due to an excess of electrical current. 25 to suggest
to install all the kinds of existing and imaginable light-bulbs. 5 who say
that the burnt bulb is an upstream issue that doesn't belong to the distro.
There's an open bug on the bulb's developer mail list. 1 noob to suggest to
install a Microsoft light-bulb. 250 to flood the noob's mail address. 300
to say that a Microsoft light-bulb would turn blue and that you'd had to
reboot continuously to get back to normal. 1 former Linux user who still
frequents the forum, to suggest to install an Apple iBulb, which has a
fresh and innovating design and it costs 250 $. 20 to say that iBulbs
aren't free, and that they have less functions than a 20 times cheaper
standard light-bulb. 15 to suggest to install a national light-bulb. 30 to
say that national light-bulbs are re-masters of foreign light-bulbs and
that they don't bring nothing new. 23 to argue if it must be a white or a
transparent bulb. 1 to remind everyone that the right name is
GNU/Light-bulb. 1 to say that light-bulbs are a Winbugs users thing and
that real Linux users aren't afraid of the dark. 1 to announce finally
which will be the model of the installed bulb. 217 to discard the chosen
model and suggest another. 6 to complain that the chosen light-bulb has
proprietary elements, and that another should be used. 20 to say that a
100% free bulb, isn't compatible with the lamp switch. The same previous 6,
to suggest to change the switch for a compatible one. 1 to yell out: "STOP
user what God is he talking about, and that if he has scientific proofs of
his existence. 1 to say that we can't trust in corporation-made bulbs and
that we should trust in community-made bulbs. 1 to post a link to an ODF
file explaining how to build a light-bulb from scratch. 14 to complain
about the format of the previous file and asking to send it in txt or
LaTeX. 5 to say that they didn't like the taken decision and that they'll
fork the house's electric installation and install a better lamp. 1 to post
a series of commands to put to change the light-bulb. 1 to comment that he
executed the commands and had an error message. 1 to advice that the
commands must be executed as root

 And finally: The father of the first
user, who while everyone were discussing, he went to the shop and bought
the cheapest light-bulb.
