not true at all :)but I like I'd say how to fix a comp: Apple : click the mac button, FIXED! Alright, alright, don't throw me tomatoes yet. Still though. Great machine!
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.
a little too trollish for my preferences 🙂
flatten and reinstall applies for any of them
Lolz… but completely false! "How to fix any x86 computer?" …. install Linux on it! 😀
I thought for sure this was going to require an open window or a hammer…oh well.
not true. all computers works with smoke, if smoke come out they don't work.
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 🙂
not true at all imho.
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
all the choice is difficult
+Amanda Blain Pretty funny. What computer do you use?
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.
in ways u can fix a computer but depends on the type of computer u are using and its problems
id say about right lol
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.
you got it
lol yea im a pc
Very good +Amanda Blain I've been toying with Ubuntu for a couple of weeks, and am about to go native.. Beard is almost there, and a hat with a propeller on is on order 🙂
of all the social networks i have been on G+ is the only one ive seen were so many people like to get very serious business on what is clearly a joke…. You joke correctors concern me. I shall cry tears of blood for you…
What about Chromebooks though?
chrome books are linux
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?
+Dan Scott LOL 😀 nice… i find a swiff kick works too 🙂
Love this one…
US military manual 101 – Electronics: if it wont work, hit it, if it still doesnt work, hit it harder
lol… Love it
Nice to be recognized +matthew petherbridge Thanks for the compliment.
Yea, the person who created the graphic hasn't used Linux in the last six years. Wake up!
i have these as wallpaper on my pc at work…. makes me smile and i'm an IT tech.
xkcd has a good pc/mac webcomic xkcd.com/934/
It's so sad Amanda, that you need to add that caveat at the end!
Funny 🙂 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.
love gnu/linux but still funny
Very good. Thanks for sharing!
very good and nice
