Operating Systems Cars

Here what driving to the corner Seven Eleven would be like if OS ran your car.

  • MS DOS: You get into the car and try to remember where you put the keys.
  • Windows: You get into the car and drive to the store very slowly, because, attached to the back of the car is a freight train.
  • Mac System 7: You get into the car and the car, all by itself, drives you to church.
  • UNIX: You get in the car and type “grep 7-11”. After reaching speeds of up to 200 miles an hour enroute, you arrive at the barber shop.
  • Win NT: You get in the car and write a letter that says, “Go to 7-11.” Then you get out of the car, place the letter on the dashboard and wait for something to happen. But all the cars does is blowing its own horn.
  • Taligent PINK: You walk to the store with Ricardo Montalban, who tells you how wonderful it will be when he can fly you to the store in his Learjet.
  • OS/2: After fuelling up with 6000 gallons of high test gas, you get in the car and go to 7-11 with a motorcycle escort and a marching brass band in procession. Halfway there, the car blows up, killing everyone in town.
  • S/36 SSP: You get in the car and drive. Halfway there you run out of gas. While walking the rest of the way, you are run over by kids on mopeds.
  • OS/400: An attendant locks you into the car and drives you to 7-11. When you get there, you watch everybody else get free Filet Mignon.
