Talking 2 Women two Operating systems


I would like point an observation on the operating systems i.e Linux and Windows that I have observed. A man's point of view.

I have observed that one can compare Linux and Windows to 2 types of women.
This is no insult to anyone or anyone's preference.

Windows is like a Whore, Hooker or Slut in that on the outside is pretty, goodlooking, appealing to the eye, eye candy all the good things, but on the inside is viruses, ugly, loose, free for all to enter, dirty, filthy, trophy wife syndrome, does her best not to show her real self, trying to get money for all her inadequate services and made up to hide flaws and promises to change when she is busted but is never does.
While Linux is the not so good looking, not appealing difficult to get to know, difficult to get into, nobody seem to like or interested in because she doesn't sell herself to anyone, she is tough but she got no viruses, not loose, no hidden agendas, reliable , clean, not after your money, easy going if you have patience and get to know her provides enough service at no charge she is the best one woman for those who get to know where for she is and she is a natural beauty who get more beautiful without make as she ages.

What do you think of this observation?
If you want to add to this feel free i might have missed out something.

Thank you

well i guess it can be looked at like this to a certain extent, but one thing i want to
comment on is :

and with that comment i would like to say that it is only true if you were a windows
user your whole life, and are spoiled by the ease of doing anything you please ...

otherwise i think it is very good looking and not difficult "to get to know" if you
are not impatient, and like to learn
every person that has ever started to use a computer, and 9 times outta 10 they
would have started using windows, they to did not have any idea how to use it
and they to also had to take time to learn how to use it ...

You've certainly got a way with words sheryco - that's a novel way of looking at it

i think your some horny guy with to much time on his hands

but as DrOzz pointed out, besides you calling linux ugly and such, its a pretty good observation

maybe next someone will try to make a android (like on that show Andromeda) (making it not look like some hooker, but something pretty that dresses modestly)and put linux on it, then make a different android (this one a cheesy whore, with not much on to wear) and put windows on it

then take them around and show them to people, and observe how many people will pick windows and find there wallets empty and they have 100 new diseases

then see how many people can tolerate linux not giving it up, and if linux breaks there noses in because you set it on a high security setting while those people wanted a quickie

Nonsense. It just doesn't look like the "pretty" stereotype propagated by the mass media. One with a bit of independence of thought and natural behavior can easily observe the unique beauty that lies within her whole being.

You hit the nail on the head. Though I didn't want to imply linux is not goodlooking but it is not the looks that people expect to see. Those who have never seen Linux expect a Windows type Environment. Like you say people look for the stereotyped "pretty". for example Hollywood where i find SOME of those Actresses and model ugly as hell especially without makeup. Linux needs not to be made up.
