Sexy OS's

Posted by DarkLordoftheMonkeys, 21 June 2010 - - - - - - · 333 views

I've noticed that whenever I search Ubuntu on Google Images I get pictures of boobies, and whenever I search FreeBSD I get pictures of hot girls in red underwear. :confused: I can't help but think these OS's must not have much to show in terms of quality so they feel a need to compensate by making them sexy. Perhaps that's just my Debianist elitism...

I just found that I could boot into different desktop environments on Knoppix. All I have to do is hit F2 when Knoppix is loading, which brings up a screen full of options, or "cheat codes", that control how the OS is loaded. One of the options is for the desktop environment.

Seemed like Open-Source was the way there for me.

I thought I could write and do DBM to.
Downloaded it, thinking, this beats M$ Word,
Which makes me do $hit both insane and...

It has no gcc or make. On the one hand that means I can't compile C code (which I can always do on my Mac, so that's not a problem). But on the other hand, when people write open source software for Winblows, they don't assume you can compile it from source. Which means, I get the fu¢kin' binary! :D:D:D I get the final, compiled product for a change,...
