You wouldn't dare say that in the FreeBSD, sorry, OS, forum.
But windows is better than linux
*refuses to get dragged into this arguement*
I know what windows are, but I've never seen a house with a Linux. anyone care to explain? Is it like a patio?
[Sound of Gurnox foaming at the mouth and twitching]
i think theyre the loft windows.
I allways thought a "Linux" was the toilet?
No, Linux is more like the plumbing and wiring - it's not pretty, you don't really know how it works but you'd be completely screwed without it.
That anology doesn't work as Plumbers and Electricians don't feel the need to rant endlessly about how superior what they do is.
No, they let their bills do the talking...
What Sar said - plumbers and electricians are greedy bastards, and so they charge you exorbitant prices. Unix/Linux geek ethos is based around everything being free, so they have to do something else to demonstrate their superiority.
I often thought about becoming a plumber if tv work dried up. Last week's episode with the toilet put paid to those ideas.
Woo a holy war!
*Digs up King Richard th Lionheart and sets him eating the participants*
Windows and Linux both have there purpuce...
try to play a game on linux...
try to setup a mailserver on windows...
Both posible but be honest..
Plumbers and electricians always, always, blame the previous workmen, fekin fantastic when your around long enough to get the same guy claiming someone else's "...botched it up big-time, used the wrong widget, installed it upside-down...(*insert llamas' exploits here*)...".
So, yeah I'd agree with what you said, they don't rant endlessly, but the effectively achieve the same result by degrading other workmen who aren't around to defend themselves...in fact, in not ranting endlessly they may actually be "keeping shtoom" just in case an unsatified customer overhears them in the pub...(another random glassing explained then eh?)
Alrighty Scoob, how's you?
But as its free its dodgy plumbing and wiring put in by ya arthritic father
