Surviving Mars sure beats the alternative (failing to survive Mars).

Never hire a Linux-using cleaning lady. Obviously, she doesn't do Windows.

I would like Iconoclasts! ^_^

To a Linux newcomer:
Welcome to Linux! Here, GNOME is one of the biggest players, Unity creates division, and getting to a terminal is just the beginning. You'll find it makes a lot more sense than Windows!

I'd like Iconoclasts my good sir. I now present you a tale of old:

Spoiler, click me
One day a Novice came to the Master.
"Master," he said, "How is it that I may become a Writer of Programs?".
The Master looked solemnly at the Novice.
"Have you in your possession a Compiler of Source Code?" the Master asked.
"No," replied the Novice. The Master sent the Novice on a quest to the Store of Software.

Many hours later the Novice returned.
"Master," he said, "How is it that I may become a Writer of Programs?".
The Master looked solemnly at the Novice.
"Have you in your possession a Compiler of Source Code?" the Master asked.
"Yes," replied the Novice.
The Master frowned at the Novice.
"You have a Compiler of Source. What now can prevent you from becoming a Writer of Programs?".
The Novice fidgeted nervously and presented his Compiler of Source to the Master.
"How is this used?" asked the Novice.
"Have you in your possession a Manual of Operation?" the Master asked.
"No," replied the Novice.
The Master instructed the Novice as to where he could find the Manual of Operation.

Many days later the Novice returned.
"Master," he said, "How is it that I may become a Writer of Programs?".
The Master looked solemnly at the Novice.
"Have you in your possession a Compiler of Source Code?" the Master asked.
"Yes," replied the Novice.
"Have you in your possession a Manual of Operation?" the Master asked.
"Yes," replied the Novice.
The Master frowned at the Novice.
"You have a Compiler of Source, and a Manual of Operation. What now can prevent you from becoming a Writer of Programs?".

At this the Novice fidgeted nervously and presented his Manual of Operations to the Master.
"How is this used?" asked the Novice.
The Master closed his eyes, and heaved a great sigh.
The Master sent the Novice on a quest to the School of Elementary.

Many years later the Novice returned.
"Master," he said, "How is it that I may become a Writer of Programs?".
The Master looked solemnly at the Novice.
"Have you in your possession a Compiler of Source Code, a Manual of Operation and an Education of Elementary?" the Master asked.
"Yes," replied the Novice.
The Master frowned at the Novice.
"What then can prevent you from becoming a Writer of Programs?".

The Novice fidgeted nervously. He looked around but could find nothing to present to the Master.
The Master smiled at the Novice.
"I see what problem plagues you." said the Master.
"Oh great master, please tell me." asked the Novice.

The Master turned the Novice toward the door, and with a supportive hand on his shoulder said, "Go young Novice, and Read The Fucking Manual." And so the Novice became enlightened

GOG Galaxy. :D

Quoting: WildCoderIconoclasts

I wanted to write an IPv4 joke, but the good ones were all already exhausted.

Spoiler, click me
I wanted to write an UDP joke, but you might not get it.

Iconoclast looks sweet.

GamingOnLinux and GOG: -Tell us a Linux related joke to try to get it!
Windows user: -A Linux related joke that isn't cringe?
Linux user: -Crinj is not a joke.

I'd like Surviving Mars.

Air DOS

Everybody pushes the airplane until it glides, then they jump on and let the plane coast until it hits the ground again. Then they push again, jump on again, and so on…

MacOS Airlines

All the stewards, captains, baggage handlers, and ticket agents look and act exactly the same. Every time you ask questions about details, you are gently but firmly told that you don’t need to know, don’t want to know, and everything will be done for you without your ever having to know, so just shut up.

Windows Air

The terminal is pretty and colorful, with friendly stewards, easy baggage check and boarding, and a smooth take-off. After about 10 minutes in the air, the plane explodes with no warning whatsoever.

Linux Airways

Everyone brings one piece of the plane along when they come to the airport. They all go out on the runway and put the plane together piece by piece, arguing non-stop about what kind of plane they are supposed to be building.

I'd love to get Surviving Mars.

No joke: My father administrated a Unix computer system of a juristical court. One day he wondered what unknown file that was in the root of the file system. He deleted it. So the system missed... its kernel.

I'd love to have Surviving Mars.

Surviving Mars please !

I got some Linux jokes but... in French. In other language it's not fun at all (cause of context words).

Linux a un noyau, Windows a un pépin. (It's like "Linux got a kernel, Windows got a problem ("pépin" is a seed, but in french it can say problem too, this is the fun fact :).
