Well some people just dont know neither proper etiquette on the web, or apparently anywere else in life.
Not realising that spreading lies is simply no good, a guy started spreading the story that he got an McDonalds switched to Ubuntu Linux. This was of course good news that a Linux distro was accepted into another mainstream place… had it been true that is.
After finding out he got Dugg, the author of the McDonald’s story admits it was a fake. What’s even more interesting is what happened after the Digg community shined a light on this guy. Since I broke the story, I thought it only fair to be the one to followup on it.
