Wow, I haven't heard this song in years. I like the updated LRR version of the video opposed to the guys sitting in the basement or wherever that was...

Kathleen as a Mac O/S, and Tally as Windows... Yeah, there's a couple of O/S' that are better stripped down... (Sorry, I couldn't help it)

Linux is too customizable, that only nerds can tweak it to its optimal setting. It's really a pain in the arse, especially when you change a single line in a configuration, then suddenly it goes on a Kernel Panic... Yea, i'm a Linux Newb, I know... Don't blame me. I still use it for other tasks, like Audio Processing and Editing.

Riiiiiiggggghhhhhtttt............ O_O

haha...the end made me laugh. Such hopelessness.

edit double post. (BTW why cant I see my post when I type it for the first time)

windows never crashed on me before, unlike apple computers

...and that's why I never get into the OS wars. I use a Mac currently, because my brand new, "top-of-the line" PC I had before wiped all my data at the slightest provocation, and forced me to constantly update, back-up and reinstall to avoid problems. But my Mac was expensive, occasionally locks up for no reason, and has a bunch of weak, unintuitive programs in it. Also, you have to pay through the nose for updates any sane company would give you totally free, and any time you want to get customer service you have to sit through three hours of advertising of Steve Jobs' groupies talking about how awesome Macs are, when he stole the god damned OS in the first place.

Every OS sucks indeed. There are competent programmers in the world, I know it. Why aren't they working to fix this? The first person to create a moderately priced reliable OS will surely make a killing.

Catchy as hell song, reminds me a little of Johnny Cash. Great idea behind the video. Always nice to the see the ladies of LRR with a video to themselves.

Plus the after credits clip was so true to life and funny as hell

-M

That was really catchy!

I would just like to say I enjoyed the song up until the second refrain.

Then Flash crashed. I assume that is a worthy punchline and will be moving on.

Truth.

I am user of all three systems (Macbook Pro+Homemade PC), and they all got huge problems.

Snow Leopard - Damn thing crashes very often. Maybe it's not the bluescreen, but there's no real difference - just a spinning ball, and freezed computer to restart. Problems with handling NTFS files, crashes 30 percent of times when i copy something to external memory of any kind. And my printer doesn't work there.

Linux 10.4 - Although it haven't crashed (but it may be because i don't spend much time there), there are many problems with programs, installing things is hell, and there are no noteworthy substitutes for many essential osx/windows apps. Working there requires knowing command line.

Windows 7 - Unluckily for this comparison i had to think a lot to find something bad. Just as Linux, when used normally, it does not crash anymore (last bluescreen i remember was in Release Candidate version, during installing of beta drivers), but when you make too much mess it will slow down - registry still present.

I love the Troll hat he's wearing. took me a while to get it, but once i did... i laughed...and laughed...and laughed.

Sad <---------------

drisky:
I love the representation of Linux as a crazy hipster chick.

Yeah, the ball kicking is particularly apt.

Damn that song is amazing !!!!

A-MEN!

Windows can be unreliable but it is the best in my opinion, 7 hasn't caused me any hassle in the past year.
Mac/Apple has caused me no end of grief for 3 years .... the only good thing about Apple has been the iPod
Linux is just one big fail-pie!

A seven-year-old Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie song? Impressive. Repackaged and made new.

Its not really possible. You start out with good intentions but you have to make compromises almost immediately. You can pick any two of scope (how many supported devices, programs, formats, etc..) quality (how well it runs) and cost. Actually, I'm not even convinced you can do both scope and quality since scope means you have to interface with other peoples broken drivers/apis/formats/etc...

Oh...My...God. That was borderline brilliant. I'm sending this on to my friends. XD

Yup. This pretty much sums up everything. I'm a proud Windows user, but GOD it has problems.

I hadn't heard it before and I LOVE IT *($*U(Q$Q" ehh... there goes windows... again.

The echo things in the chorus are kinda annoying.. but yay, didn't think you'd put the video out so soon after mentioning on desert bus.

Xerox came as.. a surprise. ^^

Nice work guys.

Timely Video Win! My brother spent almost 10 hours fixing our mom's blue-screened windows 7 PC last night.

Heheh... Every OS does suck. Just the degrees and ways that they suck differ just a little... so it comes down to which kind of sucking you are most familiar and comfortable with.

Also Reminds me of this:

According to this AmigaOS is the only windowing OS that doesn't suck. Sounds about righ*** Guru Meditation #00000100.0000A002 ***.

Ubuntu these days is pretty easy and painless to get up and running. A lot quicker and more hassle free than Windows anyway.

That has Christmas number one written all over it.

I enjoied this mostly because my computer's acting up recently.

I've been a Technology Support Specialist for years; I've used, mastered, and programed for every OS since win 95 and mac OS 6. I say that to say this... This video made me cry.

It so true. I'm going to have to dust off my commodore 64 and remember what I was like when things never froze... things just took forever to load.

blue_guy:
Which is a very bittersweet victory, as the only reason you get less viruses with Mac/Linux is that more people use windows (therefore it makes sense for virus designers to specifically target it).

Or because with Linux, everyone can see the source code so security holes get patched shut about as quick as they're found. Or because with a completely transparent security system it can just worry about security, rather than making it completely black box. Or because the average Linux user is a lot more tech savvy than your average Windows user so they wouldn't be as likely to pick them up.

Nahh you're right, it's just that one reason. :p

<- Windows user.

Yeah. I'm going to join the "It's true" bandwagon. I own a Windows laptop, and after two blue screens, I should be worried even more.

Indeed they are. They run so much better without all that.

Pretty much the truth of it isn't it?

But, these days, even game consoles and mobile phones can crash. Which demonstrates that even the most restricted of devices still needs a lot of work to get it to function flawlessly.

It's a matter of complexity. Though to a degree, one thing that's become apparent (especially for windows) is that the errors become less severe as the OS becomes better.

For instance, where an outright system crash used to be normal several times a day on windows, now you're more likely to get individual programs crashing.

But, failure is still failure, in the end.

That's a great way to summarize almost 30 years of computers in ~3 minutes. The inevitable sequel that comes to mind: Every Game Console Sucks.

So, does it mean I'm doubly fucked if I dual-boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04?

I don't think I'd mind it too much if it were those girls...and those bitches didn't crash or hit me in the balls. Shit, we need to go back to basics again so only people that know how to work one of these things can actually develop for one.

Fat, slow, pimply, command line, here I...

You know what, I think I'm going back to the plain-Jane pen and paper. She may be old, but she's got a whole bunch of tricks up her skirt and she never, ever crashes, overheats, or breaks unless it's your fault.

On the other hand, my wrist will hurt a whole lot more.

I think the performance during desert bus was better, but I still really enjoyed the video.

Its funny because its true. And also sad because its true. And also makes me a little depressed because of how FUCKING TRUE IT IS.

The tag at the end was great.
