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.

    • I have put it into clover drivers 64uefi folder on Yosemite thru High Sierra which allows me to edit my High Sierra disk if needed in Yosemite system.   There is no functionality of apfs in other versions but it does allow other clover bootloaders and systems to recognize the HS apfs drive or open it for inspection.   If you don’t have it you can’t see your HS drive or access it in another macOS version.
    • Hi! Is it possible to get codec AD1981 running with AppleHDA on HP Compaq 8710w? It works nicely with VoodooHDA. Speakers and HP are switching automatically.  Internal and HP mic also work - no switching in SysPref but it works when mic is plugged in and internal mic works when hp mic is unplugged.   It has same weird pathmap - connected directly:  Playback: nid=5 [pin: Speaker (Analog)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001 nid=6 [pin: Headphones (Grey Left)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001   But inputs are really weird. There are 5 nodes from input to HP mic/Internal mic nid=4 [audio input] | + <- nid=21 [audio selector] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=12 [audio mixer] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=30 [audio selector] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 | + <- nid=8 [pin: Microphone (Grey Left)] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 + <- nid=31 [audio selector] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 | + <- nid=24 [pin: Microphone (Analog)] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 Can pathmap like that even work with AppleHDA? What codec should I patch? I tried patches from AD1984 but no luck.    These are manually patched verbs: 00571c10 00571d01 00571e17 00571f90 00570C02 00671c20 00671d10 00671e21 00671f03 00771cf0 00771d00 00771e00 00771f40 00871c30 00871d10 00871e81 00871f03 00971cf0 00971d00 00971e00 00971f40 00a71cf0 00a71d00 00a71e00 00a71f40 01671cf0 01671d00 01671e00 01671f40 01771cf0 01771d00 01771e00 01771f40 01871c40 01871d01 01871ea0 01871f90 01971cf0 01971d00 01971e00 01971f40   Codecgraph and linux codecdump attached.

    •   Yes, 'cause APFS log is coming before clover boot screen.
    • and you suspect apfs on before clover issues
