I'd like Surviving Mars.

Spoiler, click me


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.

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 .

All I've got is an UDP joke

"Why did the chicken cross the road?"

Or maybe the joke should be

By far the best linux-related joke out there is:


Surviving Mars please.
Duke Takeshi 14 June 2018 at 5:38 pm UTC

yet another shell joke:
[stop@hammertime ~]$ touch /this touch: cannot touch '/this': Permission denied
