^ Hehe, good one.  User Friendly is classic.

Stumbled across Tira Ecol quite a while ago, before there were very many english translations.  There's been no new comics since 2010, and they stepped away from the OS humor towards the end, and really it's more chaff than wheat, but there's still some gold in them hills....

From https://www.gnu.org/...users-lightbulb.html

How many GNU/Linux users are needed to change a light bulb?

  • 1 to post a thread in a mailing list telling the bulb has burnt.
  • 1 to suggest to try to turn the lamp on through command lines.
  • 1 to complain that the user broke the thread.
  • 1 to ask what new bulb will he install.
  • 1 to advice that we shouldn't use the word burn for meaning a broken lightbulb, because it would mean that the bulb was set on fire and that it would be right to say that the bulb broke due to an excess of electrical current.
  • 25 to suggest to install all the kinds of existing and imaginable lightbulbs.
  • 5 who say that the burnt bulb is an upstream issue that doesn't belong to the distro. There's an open bug on the bulb's developer mail list.
  • 1 noob to suggest to install a Microsoft lightbulb.
  • 250 to flood the noob's mail address.
  • 300 to say that a Microsoft lightbulb would turn blue and that you'd had to reboot continuously to get back to normal.
  • 1 former GNU/Linux user who still frequents the forum, to suggest to install an Apple iBulb, which has a fresh and innovating design and it costs $250.
  • 20 to say that iBulbs aren't free, and that they have less functions than a 20 times cheaper standard lightbulb.
  • 15 to suggest to install a national lightbulb.
  • 30 to say that national lightbulbs are crippled remasters of foreign lightbulbs and that they don't bring anything new.
  • 23 to argue if it must be a white or a transparent bulb.
  • 1 to remind everyone that the right name is GNU/Lightbulb.
  • 1 to say that lightbulbs are a Winbugs users thing and that real GNU/Linux users aren't afraid of the dark.
  • 1 to announce finally which will be the model of the installed bulb.
  • 217 to discard the chosen model and suggest another.
  • 6 to complain that the chosen lightbulb has propietary elements, and that another should be used.
  • 20 to say that a 100% free bulb, isn't compatible with the lamp switch.
  • The same previous 6, to suggest to change the switch for a compatible one.
  • 1 to yell out: “STOP ARGUING AND CHANGE THAT LIGHTBULB FOR GOD'S SAKE!”
  • 350 to ask the previous user what God is he talking about, and that if he has scientific proofs of His existence.
  • 1 to explain how electricity works and why a light bulb is inefficient.
  • 1 to say that we can't trust in corporation-made bulbs and that we should trust in community-made bulbs.
  • 1 to post a link to an ODF file explaining how to build a lightbulb from scratch.
  • 14 to complain about the format of the previous file and asking to send it in txt or LaTeX.
  • 5 to say that they didn't like the taken decission and that they'll fork the house's electric installation and install a better lamp.
  • 1 to post a series of commands to put to change the lightbulb.
  • 1 to comment that he executed the commands and had an error message.
  • 1 to advice that the commands must be executed as root.

And finally:

  • The father of the first user, who while everyone was discussing, went to the shop and bought the cheapest lightbulb.

Oh gawd Edvard, that's damn scary...

"Phoenix vs Linux round four"

This month I'm drifting into trouble but here goes...

Despite the easy jokes, Windows OS has worked for me. But since my main rig keeled over without even allowing Safe Mode, well, I'm cashing in a coupon from Dad to get a new comp. (Multi B-Day and X-Mas all mashed together).

So I no longer have either of the boxes that led to my bad experiences, plus time has this way of passing, so I might be able to do some kind of wild triple-boot with my new rig.

Now I get to go back to what I avoided for x years, the wild questions of distro and version and ... stuff.

But look! It's brand new hardware, it's 2016 and neither 2006 or 2009, and Things!

Why complicate things? I suggest you save your money and get a basic box with no hard drive and external USB for everything. A reasonably good motherboard like an ASUS AMD and a fair processor like an AM3+ and about 16 GB RAM should set you back about $275.00 and you can work with anything in RAM from DVD or USB. Lots of help is available, depending on what you want to do. Check out live distributions on distrowatch.com and the KaOS approach is great.
