LXer: Top Ten Reasons for a Linux Laptop - Humor

Published at LXer:

In a bit of off the cuff humor, Mark Rais creates another Linux Top Ten countdown. As always, he recommends downloading and listening to a drum roll mpg while reading the list.

You will end the constant late night computer assistance calls from your “buddy.” He calls because “you’re the computer pro, right?” When he telephones you next, tell him, “Sorry I have no idea how to do that, I use Linux.” You’ll never hear from him again. Even better, he will now start calling someone else with Vista and bug them! The pleasures with Linux laptops are endless.

I've started doing this with my friends/family and the calls have just about stopped coming in!

I guess tech guys are not naturally funny. I will give them credit for trying, though.
