Did You know that Biology and Linux have something in common?

I found this! Who knew Linux was natural!?

So will Linux survive like bacteria :slight_smile:

yep.
and, moreover: the closed systems will die from inbreeding. (and/or
from killing the “golden goose”)

You didn’t get that from the article, which was about the fittest components. The theory doesn’t apply to closed systems such as Windows, as mentioned in the article. :slight_smile:

This is what it’s about:

They have this enormous common pool of genes that they are freely sharing with each other. Bacterial systems can easily add or remove genes from their genomes through what’s called horizontal gene transfer, a kind of file sharing between bacteria

GitTorrent ?

More like OBS :slight_smile:

Which is about survival of the fittest components, i.e. the stuff you quoted (not GitTorrent). :slight_smile:

So linux is not [like] a virus, as some body once claimed, it infects like a bacteria. :smiley:

i sure did get it from the article…read the last two paragraphs
again. in thumbnail it says it is the common pool of freely shared
genes which allows Linux to flourish–but the theory does not extend
to Window because, being closed it can’t benefit from the external pool.

ouch - that is so much better :frowning:
I had a bacteria infection a few weeks ago, maybe I can blame Linux :wink:

I trust you are feeling better now. :slight_smile:

A virus is generally harder to manage and overcome.

yes it is better while I am still using Linux, maybe I became immune

sure, I wonder what kind of thing MS Windows is in that context?

Some might say it’s a plague, global reach suggests a pandemic.
