I use Vodoo. And if that doesn't work I find primal screaming and/or taking the mouse hostage until it surrenders and works and works again…that sometimes works too.

Not true at all, actually (at least in regards to Linux). It was sort-of-true 12 or so years ago, but hasn't really been true at all for about 8 or so.

I have used Linux since 2000 (Mandrake) & have never had to recompile my own kernel ๐Ÿ™‚

i took a computer with a broken motherboard and it still runs linux. Windows crashes too much. Windows 7 dropped major functionality and Apple is to closed so you can't really do any computing. It's more of a pretty art project

I have to say tho, my PC using Ubuntu has far less problems than it did with Windows. I did build it from scratch.

Credit +Matthew Inman for this lovely piece of satire. I don't understand how people don't see that this is a joke and it is not meant to be taken seriously.

Like seriously, "Cry Blood" and "Light from Saturn" should have been an obvious cue.

Actually just… 'Boot from an Ubuntu flash drive, backup your files' then reinstall/replace/whatever. If your 'nix breaks then you should have used Ubuntu in the first place, never had one break on me ever.

Knew my 44 years of IT would come in handy.
Step 1) Power off then reboot after 15 seconds. Soft reboot is not sufficient.
If that did not work ——

Step 2) Find maintenance pressure point (all cybernetic devices have them. Apply heel of palm against MPP using 1.2 foot pounds of rapid force. Did that work? If not…….

Go get a beer. Never weep, its just a damn computer.

P.S. Used to have 10 steps when I was younger. Cut it down to essentials through trial and error.

android OS is linux, google uses unix on its servers, why wouldnt they simply make another distro like android for a laptop?

It's so sad Amanda, that you need to add that caveat at the end!

Funny ๐Ÿ™‚ Except that it sends the message that Linux is complicated. I use Ubuntu Linux. I also installed it for my mom, dad, grandma and other people. They don't know C++. And they didn't need to fix it anyway because it works. Installing software is easier than in Windows or Mac OS, usually just one click. No need to pirate software, it's free. No worry about viruses. Usually no need to install drivers: most things work when you plug them. I know it was a joke, but I had to say that Linux is often as easy as the others.

Apple OS uses a variation of the UNIX command shell for their CLI. In addition there are features such as "user vs root" which also resemble Linux based OSes. As for chromeOS…when is that ever going to be released?

+Roland Gee Chrome OS is already out. It's in the Chromebooks they sell.

Lol! This Apple fad is a joke. Great marketing Scheme for those with the money to spend but honestly what does apple have that a solid build Windows platform does not?

This comic was by +Matthew Inman and he was poking fun at the old Linux distributions back in the day when you literally built the functionality of the OS from the ground up. These days companies such as Canonical has made Linux use a breeze which works right out of the box. Now with the updated features of the Unity desktop environment, this is probably the best time to try out Ubuntu…even if you're not a hardcore geek or linux savvy.
