I remember reading this a while back, I think it was in the late nineties when I first read it, probably only a couple of years ago, but it feels like decades. I recently went back to the Dilbert website and started going through old cartoons. When I found this, I had to share.
(ha! ‘Deviant’ computer users!!! Mentality of the mid-nineties: If it ain’t Windows, it’s CRAP!)
People ask what kind of computer I use , I say Linux, they say ‘what?’, and I say “Here’s a nickel kid…”
The last cartoon shows why GNU/Linux computers aren’t used more frequently in the media and television:
OK, maybe it doesn’t completely explain it. Heck, there was a movie recently with Ashton Kutcher where his spy character used a T-Mobile G1 to do awesome spy-stuff. And now everybody and my brother has a little Linux computer in their hand (Under the name ‘Droid of course) You never know where the Unix spawn will show up next.
