Anyone have some good comic that pokes at the holes of Windows, Linux, or OS X? Here's an oldie-but-goodie:

I've got OS jokes; my comics come later on! (after feedback) - (<3 Google)

"Avoid the Gates of Hell. Use Linux " -- Unknown

"being a Linux user is sort of like living in a house inhabited by a large family of carpenters and architects. Every morning when you wake up, the house is a little different. Maybe there is a new turret, or some walls have moved. Or perhaps someone has temporarily removed the floor under your bed" -- Unknown

"Besides, I think Slackware sounds better than 'Microsoft,' don't you?" -- Unknown

"Going from DOS to Linux is like trading a glider for an F117" -- Unknown

"Linux is not user-friendly. It _is_ user-friendly. It is not ignorant-friendly and idiot-friendly." -- Unknown

"linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste " -- Unknown

"linux: the choice of a GNU generation " -- Unknown

"Microsoft is not the answer. Microsoft is the question. NO (or Linux) is the answer" -- Unknown

"MS-DOS, you can't live with it, you can live without it." -- Unknown

"No. That's it. The cool name, that is. We worked very hard on creating a name that would appeal to the majority of people, and it certainly paid off: thousands of people are using linux just to be able to say "OS/2? Hah. I've got Linux. What a cool name". 386BSD made the mistake of putting a lot of numbers and weird abbreviations into the name, and is scaring away a lot of people just because it sounds too technical. " -- Linus Torvalds

"The box said that I needed to have Windows 98 or better... so I installed Linux" -- Unknown

"UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity" -- Dennis Ritchie
_______________________________________________
The Task:
GO TO THE STORE
=================

MS-DOS (<=5.0): You get in the car and try to remember where you
put your keys.

MS Dos 6.0: You go to get in your car to GOTO THE STORE but the car has
been run over by a steam roller.

Windows: You get in the car and drive to the store very slowly,
because attached to the back of the car is a freight train.

Windows NT: You get in the car and write a letter that says
"go to the store." Then you get out of the car and mail
the letter to your dashboard.

Macintosh System 7: You get in the car to go to the store,
and the car drives you to church.

UNIX: You get in the car and type GREP STORE. After reaching
speeds of 200 miles per hour en route, you arrive at the barber shop.

Taligent/Pink: You walk to the store with Ricardo Montalban,
who tells you how wonderful it will be when he can fly you
to the store in his Learjet.

OS/2: After fueling up with 6000 gallons of gas, you get in the
car and drive to the store with a motorcycle escort and a
marching band in procession. Halfway there, the car blows up,
killing everybody in town.

S/36 SSP [mainframe, obv.]: You get in the car and drive to
the store. Halfway there you run out of gas. While
walking the rest of the way, you are run over by kids
on mopeds.

AS/400: An attendant locks you into the car and then drives you
to the store, where you get to watch everybody else buy fillet mignons.

The operating system for your Brain. Which One???

Windows for brains:
-------------------
You think about one of any number of things at anyone time but
only for a short amount of time because then your mind goes blank
as you encounter a "general protection fault" and as a last
resort you have to re-boot your brain.


DOS for brains:
---------------
You only think of one thing at one time, and can't remember
anything else you were meant to be thinking about. You think only
in words and never any pictures.


Unix for brains:
----------------
Wow - you can think of lots of things all at once until your
brain runs out of sockets. You can only talk though with people
who have brains made by the same vendor. Unfortunately you also
never make any sense and have to read manuals to learn how to
think. Predominantly a random thinker.


CP/M for brains:
----------------
A very slow and old fashioned thinker. Any thing you remember
has to be less than 3 letters long.


MVS/CICS for brains:
--------------------
You have a very big and expensive brain. You can think about
many things at the one time but never now what other parts of
your brain are thinking unles you have set up SNA connections
between sections of your brains. You also need an army of system
programmers to define what thoughts you may and may not have.


OS/2 for brains:
----------------
You can think about lots of things at once but need the
equivalent of eigteen sets of encyclopaedias in memory to produce
any rational thought. No-one supports your way of thinking and
many laugh at you whenever you speak.


Mac for brains:
---------------
Simple thoughts for simple people. Thinking that looks good,
feels good but is expensive.


Pick for brains:
----------------
I now narthing. Narthing Mr Fawlty.

AmigaOS for brains:

You can think of lots of things at once, even with a very small
memory. The trouble is that, sometimes, one thought starts to
think about the things another thought was using. This leads to a
compelling need to wrap a teatowel around your head and sit,
crosslegged, on the floor.


Linux for Brains:
-----------------
You can think of any number of things and not run out of sockets.
Unfortunately, there is no support for your particular limbs,
ears, mouth or .... thingy.... available yet so you are reluctant
to change over at this stage.
