Edited to reflect that at the time referenced in the comic (2003), Windows XP machines were not necessarily "more susceptible" to viruses, but rather due to their ubiquity (especially at large corporations or other organizations) were more likely to be targeted by viruses. I'm certainly not an expert, so please if anyone has a better understanding, update or revert the explanation, as appropriate. Orazor (talk) 08:52, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

"Cleaning viruses in the Win32 API" is such a stupid statement... Gonna edit it later. 13:28, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

When, exactly, is "later"?Elektrizikekswerk (talk) 10:47, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
When the prophets realise there is more to keeping Windows afloat than a cartel making hardware. Or do you imagine that moving to Adobe is a brilliant move on the part of US Intelligence.
Ah... Let me rephrase that...
There is no way on god's earth that Microsoft could have survived Vista without a lot of very well placed software makers shitting semicolons. Imagine the wave of panic that must have darkened the doorstep of every computer seller and manufacturer of Windows games and other software when it occurred to them it was Vista or Linux.
If going back to school would have sucked for Windows users, think how the schools were reacting to the news.

I used Google News BEFORE it was clickbait (talk)

I predict the Linux Event date to be sometime in 2016. That's because I, a confirmed disbeliever in the usability of Linux (due to many attempts and no successes), have decided that the Linux community has matured enough and grown large enough to have created a distro that I can get working. I will be attempting this major breakthrough in the next 6 months or so. Please stand by. Jakee308 (talk) 19:08, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Didn't happen. Linux just totally sucks. All the commands make no sense (If I hear 'sudo' one more time I will barf)

. Also Android is shit. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

IMO the commands make so much more sense than their Windows counterparts. And sudo (I don't care about your barf) is really simple, it's just "run this as admin". 12:41, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
You should try Fedora. Fedora is probably the best Linux distribution for GNOME. It's also the most up to date (while stable) distro. :) (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
As much as I'd like that too, it's 2020 and that ist still very far from happening. Any new guesses, when it will happen? --Zehka (talk) 10:31, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
