If Operating Systems Ran Your Brain

If operating systems ran your brain

Windows for brains:
You  think about one of any number of things at anyone time  but
only for a short amount of time because then your mind goes blank
as  you  encounter a “general  protection fault” and  as  a  last
resort you have to re-boot your brain.

DOS for brains:
You  only  think of one thing at one time,  and  can’t  remember
anything else you were meant to be thinking about. You think only
in words and never any pictures.

Unix for brains:
Wow – you  can think of lots of things all at  once  until  your
brain  runs out of sockets. You can only talk though with  people
who  have brains made by the same vendor. Unfortunately you  also
never  make  any sense and have to read manuals to learn  how  to
think. Predominantly a random thinker.

CP/M for brains:
A  very slow and old fashioned thinker. Any thing  you  remember
has to be less than 3 letters long.

MVS/CICS for brains:

You  have  a very big and expensive brain. You can  think  about
many  things  at the one time but never now what other  parts  of
your  brain are thinking unless you  have set up  SNA  connections
between sections of your brains. You also need an army of  system
programmers to define what thoughts you may and may not have.

OS/2 for brains:
You  can  think  about  lots of things  at  once  but  need  the
equivalent of eighteen sets of encyclopaedias in memory to produce
any  rational thought. No-one supports your way of  thinking  and
many laugh at you whenever you speak.

Mac for brains:
Simple  thoughts  for simple people. Thinking that  looks  good,
feels good but is expensive.

Pick for brains:
I now narthing. Narthing Mr Fawlty.

AmigaOS for brains:

You  can think of lots of things at once, even with a very  small
memory.  The  trouble is that, sometimes, one thought  starts  to
think about the things another thought was using. This leads to a
compelling  need  to wrap a teatowel around your  head  and  sit,
crosslegged, on the floor.

Linux for Brains:
You can think of any number of things and not run out of sockets.
Unfortunately,  there  is no support for your  particular  limbs,
ears, mouth or …. thingy…. available yet so you are reluctant
to change over at this stage.
