    I just learned that the name of my favorite Linux distribution, Ubuntu, is from the Zulu language. It means humanity. The Zulu language belongs to a group of languages called Nguni, which in turn belong to a larger group of languages called Bantu. The Zulu language is spoken by approximately 27 million people.
