That Other OS Is Not Funny. It’s Schizophrenic…

“essentially it showed a Windows Phone with a standard error message.

Here’s the line that caught his eye: “Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.” Really, and where exactly would one do that?”

see This is the funniest Windows error message you’ve ever seen – The Next Web.

This is the kind of thing that happens when a bloated software is shoe-horned into another architecture. One hand does not know what the other does and no one really understands it. */Linux on the other hand is fully configurable to run on just about anything in a dozen architectures and because the thing is nice and modular we get what we want.

I recommend Debian GNU/Linux. It will run on most PCs even tablets and smartphones with few modifications.

    Each Windows upgrade is just a pretty shell, call it a paint-job over a rusting hulk.

    I shouldn’t be surprised but I am. Microsoft has been recycling the same bloated piece of crap for well over a decade now. Nothing new but more layers and user interfaces. Their customers pay for the privilege of having to learn a new interface just to give Microsoft the facade of creating something new.
