I was trying to help someone once with a Linux problem and had him
insisting over and over again that he had kernel version 6.0.  Turned
out he had SuSE version 6.0.  It was very frustrating for me because I 
really needed to know what kernel version he had and I _simply could
not_ drag this information out of him.
