Air Apparent

A Twitter debate I had last Sunday spurred the idea behind today’s comic. Why can’t people be satisfied using what they use, instead of burning wasteful cycles trying to tell everyone else their choice is “wrong”? You never see this type of argument take place over things like toothpaste, radial tires, or cheese.

And yet, the OS “conversions” continue, and probably will for as long as we have choices. Thoughts?

Oh, and it’s pure coincidence that today’s comic happens to share the same date as Ubuntu 11.04‘s launch.


P.S. If you like today’s comic please Stumble It, add it to Reddit, or retweet it. (The handy buttons up above work.) Bonus points if you send today’s toon to a computer snob. ;)

    I didn’t want to say anything, but if you’re not using Listerine Toothpaste, your teeth will probably rot out of your head faster from stupidity than decay.

        You know, it would be pretty easy to be an elitist about random things. People just call it advice though.

    It comes down to the old Ford or Chevy arguement I used to see guys get into that would nearly come to blows. At last count I think in my 25 years as a pro computer guy I’m up to around different OSes. That does not count the multiple flavors of Linux I have used. Computers are computers really. I love them all. ;)

    That should have said 10 OSes.

    The discussion just made me think of the lyrics to the Rolling Stones’ Satisfaction (I Can’t Get No) song…

    When I’m watchin’ my TV
    And that man comes on to tell me
    How white my shirts can be
    But he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke
    The same cigarrettes as me
