An Epic Struggle on my Computer

Two nights ago I installed Red Hat Linux 9 on my Laptop computer–alongside the existing MS Windows XP. I would like to make the switch one of these days (mostly because I dislike Microsoft), and this setup should allow me to evaluate Linux for awhile with out giving up Windows just yet. Last night, since I couldn’t sleep, I got to thinking of the two separate entities lodged on my hard drive, vying against one another for my ultimate favor. Good vs. Evil and all that stuff. I just couldn’t resist a few midnight cinquain:

Microsoft
Evil Empire
Hiding, hoarding, scheming
Monster out of control
Dragon.

Linux
Mighty Maverick
Liberating, illuminating, sharing
Rising to the challenge
Knight.

Me
Distressed Damsel
Watching, waiting, hoping
Looking funny in dress
Rescue?

Microsoft
Secretive Sorcerer
Enchanting, manipulating, deceiving
The world is spellbound
Enslaved.

Linux
Spell Breaker
Healing, revealing, unconcealing
Truth shall set you
Free.
