    Depends how you parse it. With uncompress-ing, the word "uncompress" is
    actually a pronoun -- it is the name of the traditional uncompress
    program. Being a name, it does not have to be a real word. :-)

    Now really, the kernel is not "compress"-ed per se, it's "zipped".

    So may I suggest:

    Unzipping linux.... done <grin>
