On Debian, but not on Time

It was kind of interesting to see this the other day, on the train from Monselice to Padova:

Debian Trenitalia

That’s a Debian system, kernel 2.6.8.1, which appears to have some problems booting. That’s not the only problem with the train system in Italy, unfortunately:

My Padova->Monselice train, roughly a 20 minute train ride, was 65 minutes late, and would end up being nearly an hour and a half late. Ouch! To be fair, the train system in the US is actually even worse, if that can be believed. And in Austria, while they run on time, they’re so expensive and don’t run often, so that it’s often much more convenient to drive.
