Surviving Mars!!

Three sysadmins have a crash in a car against a tree. The car is broken. It refuses to move.

The first sysadmin uses Mac and says: "No worries, I have a good customer support. I will make a call and we will get the car fixed"

The second sysadmin uses Linux and says: "Don't bother with that. I have all the tools here to fix it. It will be way faster if we fix it ourselves".

The third sysadmin uses Windows and says: "Guys, why don't we just try to get out of the car and enter again?"

Honestly, I'd be happy with either game. Flip a coin?

How do you know if your friend uses Linux? Don't worry, they will tell you.

Surviving Mars is something I've been thinking of getting.

^ That was the joke, I am so busy that I will never have a chance to play it!
If you are wondering how my joke relates to Linux, please read the article once again.

Surviving Mars for me please.

What do you get when you cross a Fedora with an Arch?

Spoiler, click me

Surviving Mars would be nice.

What's the difference between Linux & Windows, you can't let in fresh air by opening Linux.

Surviving Mars sounds like it could be a sweet game.
Here's a couple of good/bad "jokes" related to Linux...

  • You can't play games in Linux
  • Steam Machines
  • Photoshop
  • Fresh packages in Debian stable
