Linux Revolution 1945


This little idea came to me after browsing through the many, many communism-themed Linux wallpapers available on the internet. It's not unexpected, perhaps, that there are so many of them ? after all, the connection between Linux and communism is obvious, albeit perhaps not entirely warranted ? but I thought, "What about all the other extreme political doctrines out there?"

So I set out to make something different, and this is the result. It appears very controversial, even hateful at a first glance, but it really isn't once you realize it's made in good humor and as a joke/interesting take on wallpapers/art excursion. It might be illegal to watch in Germany, though. View at own risk. No offense is meant towards Linus Torvalds, penguins, nazis, or anyone else. That being said, I really doubt anyone in their right mind would take this seriously. I know that Betriebssystem, Volk and other words ought to be capitalised; unfortunately, capitals render almost unreadable in Fraktur fonts, which is why they are lowercase.

The wallpaper is available in 1024x768 and 1600x1200, both 256-color PNG images. If you can't view them properly, you are probably unfortunate enough to be using Internet Explorer.

Great one! )
However i can't understand german. What does the text say?

The big red text says: "Long live the Revolution." The smaller text, I'm not sure about. I only know Reich in that sentence.

"Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Betriebssystem" => "One people, one empire, one operating system". An obvious paraphrase of Hitler's "Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein F�hrer".
