@ph what areas do you research?  My stuff is mostly on: http://many-roads.com 

As for the unhealthy food thing, remember eat healthy, exercise, and you still die... that's where the genealogy kicks in again.  Ah life is a beautiful circle.  :P

What you said reminds me of what Bill Hicks said....

"Non smokers die everyday too!"

I read all your answers and i have to say I'm very surprised I thought that most people using Linux was related with IT or Software developing but I can see it's not true.

I'm Aeronautic Engineer from Mexico for living and beer tester for fun  :)

Former IT Manager and Accountant made redundant at 50, now work for NHS (National Health Service in UK) as a support worker for people with dementia and challenging behaviour.  Work in the office one day a week organising training (for last seven months was working full time in office due to appalling rota software foisted on us, now back to what I love....).

Shows that Manjaro and Linux is not just for a few geeks
 It proves that Linux is for people from all walks of life and lack of money has nothing to do with it?
