I would like to know something about this thingie called "kudzu".  To
me, kudzu is an evil groundcover that is taking over parts of the United
States and causing serious environmental damage.  I think it was
originally supposed to be good food for cattle but it ran rampant.

So when I hear "kudzu" and something to do with computers... I imagine
something like Microsoft Windows... It tries to take over your computer
and eradicate what belongs there.  Also, once it is there, it is almost
impossible to get rid of.

So what is kudzu really and I am the only person who gets this sort of
image from the name?
