With one’s recent ascension to the throne, one has been charged with a mighty and honourable task. Therefore:
I solemnly promise and swear to govern the Peoples of the Bad Voltage Community, and of my Possessions and the other Territories to any of them belonging or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs.
I will, with my power, cause Law and Justice, in Mercy, to be executed in all my judgements.
I will, to the utmost of my power, maintain the Laws of UNIX and the true profession of the Kernel Source. I will, to the utmost of my power, maintain in the Bad Voltage Community the POSIX Reformed Religion established by law. I will maintain and preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of Emacs, and the doctrine, worship, discipline, and government thereof, as by law established online. And I will preserve unto the Bishops and Clergy of vim, and to the Churches there committed to their charge, all such rights and privileges, as by law do or shall appertain to them or any of them.
The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me Linus.
