Every OS sucks... A nice little ditty (requires either windows media player or flash player).

Note ; It requires WiMP or RealPlayer. Flash player isn't well known for running video ;) Not that WIMP is either, but hey.

Dead Trolls also has an internet helpdesk skit which I found funny, then somewhat disturbing in it's accuracy...

Watching a video about how operating systems suck....only on RealPlayer or Windows Media Player.....somewhat ironic, but fitting.

He has a good point about Linux, though -- sure, it's stable and free, but it's about as useful to me as "build your own car!" kit.

120degrees - this ain't yo grandma's RealPlayer... it's cross platform now. Oh, and Linux doesn't suck, but that's another discussion altogether.

tweebiscuit - linux is pretty much for the computer junkie i admit, but i'd choose building my own car over driving a pretty one into a Blue Brick Wall of Death every couple of days

Ever since I sold my Amiga I decided to never love another OS and since I switched to Windows that really isn't a problem.

Before catching myself I had a fleeting thought about emailing them to try BeOS... beat that.

I needed a good trip down low memory lane. Yup, those were the good 'ol days.

*sigh* unfortunately Holloway, the BeOS is already beaten. Don't get me wrong, I love it as much as I did the Amiga (read: a whole fucking lot), but it sufferes from being made by a company that invests little to no time, engery, or money on it anymore, and probably will end up just like the amiga, adored by few, but adored very, very much.

paddy - I guess you didn't get my point in my earlier post. I wasn't implying that Linux sucks, and don't recall saying that. What I was implying was, that if you were going to watch something that "sucked".....it might as well be on RealPlayer or Windows Media Player. Neither of which I currently have installed on my system, so I didn't actually watch the video. WMP is bearable, but RealPlayer......I still don't understand why people put up with such inferior technology, when there are much better players out there.
