He's less creepy without the male cameltoe.

Is that supposed to make Linux appear slightly more acceptable than if he had visible MCT?
 
2007-02-09 07:51:21 PM  
And people give me crap for being against linux advocacy.

You never see people giving FreeBSD crap like this.

What, you want to see that?

/mods ain't the only crazy thing round here

For a site that uses open source software, Apache/FreeBSD the admins sure appear to have a hard on for Linux.

LOL. Nice.
 
2007-02-09 08:05:47 PM  
FreeBSD is more of an I WANT TO BELIEVE kind of thing, maybe with a big metal robot walking out of the saucer to say hello.

Long live Tron Guy! According to his blog, he's aware of this ad already, thanks to Digg's front page link to the image:

0918 - They Digg me!

Someone made a Photoshop spoof of the "I'm a Pc, I'm a Mac" ads... and it's on the front page of Digg. I'm impressed.

I too can live with this.

/Linux user since 1998
//Windows hater since....forever!
 
2007-02-09 08:47:41 PM  
Windows for the deskop.
Linux for the datacenter/server room.

It's a winning combination.
 
2007-02-09 09:04:12 PM  
I was going to come in here and offer the explanation that its friday night, and the admins are probably drunk.

But, now that I see wil == submitter, it makes sense.

/Still not ruling out the drunk hypothesis.
 
2007-02-09 09:08:58 PM  
Get it? It's funny cause, ummm. Cause... well shiat, it's not really.

/second the drunk admins theory

2007-02-09 09:23:21 PM  
Crap. I came in here to say that I *heart* subby, but I don't want to be accused of being a brown-noser. So I won't say anything.

I bet farkers could raise $5k for the charity of your choice (hell, they raised $3k for me!) if you showed up at Gencon in a Tron Suit.
 
2007-02-09 09:24:50 PM  

Windows for the deskop home computer so you can watch all flavors of porn.
Linux for the desktop.
Linux for the datacenter/server room.

It's a winning combination.


Fixed that for ya
 
2007-02-09 09:25:53 PM  
yeah google is so uncool.
 
2007-02-09 09:27:06 PM  
why is it that everyone that uses linux or MacOS (theyre both stolen from UX) are asshats???
/just noticin
 
2007-02-09 09:27:18 PM  
wilarity ensues.
 
2007-02-09 09:27:32 PM  
elchip: Your typical Linux administrator. Probably NSFW.

GAH! Thou art truly vile, elchip.

Most Linux admins I've met pretty well fit the "Fortyish guy with a ponytail and black Grateful Dead tee shirt, playing xpilot on a machine in the back" stereotype.

Oddly silent about Flynn and Ram though, dontcha think?

/Yes. *

2007-02-09 09:28:27 PM  
So, what the photo shows, is that they're all intolerable dweebs, just different in their own way?

Cos we're better than you.

im not seeing how this is a problom, i rather like it
 
2007-02-09 09:29:41 PM  
Hey, they need to add a pic of a smug Unix admin, older, long beard, smoking pipe tobacco. That would rock.

Jaedreth

ps. either that or a pic of a shark... technically it's prehistoric, but it's still around, and its still got teeth.

Ahem...or without a nutshell, as some are complaining.

/Thank you, I'll be here all week.

Post more. Please.

Oh my god elchip, that was awesome! Best laugh I've had all week.
 
2007-02-09 09:32:45 PM  
Of course, in real life John Hodgeman is way funnier than either of those assclowns.
