Cooking with Linux - Tonight's Menu: Diner's Choice!

The December 2006 Cooking with Linux marks seven years of Chez Marcel, its Linux Chef and François, his famous waiter. For this occasion, Marcel has invited some regular readers of the column to share their favorite issues and, of course, a glass or two (or three, or four) of wine.

François, how did you manage to sneak in that portrait of yourself? You truly are efficient today, mon ami. I see that you have continued to refresh our guests' glasses. Excellent. Sadly, it seems that closing time is upon us, so the next refill will have to be the last one. My sincere thanks to everyone out there for joining me here every month these past seven years and for helping make Cooking with Linux as much fun as it has been. I also want to thank the members of my own WFTL-LUG, aka “The Lug Nuts” (new members welcome), who joined me in the restaurant today. For a complete list of past Cooking with Linux columns and links to each article on-line, check out Now that François has so graciously refilled your glasses, please join me in a toast and let us all drink to one another's health. A votre santé Bon appétit!
