The Great Exodus

..and so it has begun. I have taken that first step and embarked on a brand new journey with the penguin OS.. yes, I have migrated over to Linux. Gone will be the oppressive days of Blue Screens and endless anti-virus updates. Gone will be the days of merciless rulings and useless ‘support’ coming from Microsoft.

A whole new world awaits.. where software is and will always be free. Where ppl gladly share knowledge and where software codes mature faster than Microsoft can say BillGates.

So anyway, it’s a start, and I’m feeling good about it. It’s quite interesting really, I really wind up learning a lot more about what’s going on in the background, rather than the usual WINDOWS splash screens and automated everything.. it’s no wonder that the great IT users of this world don’t dabble with windows.

Came across an article a few days back.. quite timely.. and I thot I’d share it since it really fits the whole ‘IT’ topic of this post. Enjoy!

Upgrade From Boyfriend To Husband

Dear IT Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a slow down in the overall performance, particularly in the flower, gifts and jewellery applications that had operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 un-installed many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, but installed undesirable programs such as Formula One 5.0, NBA 3.0 and World Cup 2.0.

And now Conversation 8.0 no longer runs and House Cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?

Desperate Housewife


Dear Desperate Housewife,

First keep in mind:
Boyfriend 5.0 is an entertainment package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Try entering the command C:\ I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME and download
Tears 6.2 to install Guilt 3.0.

If all works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewellery 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

But remember, overuse can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Late Night Teh Tarik 6.1.

Late Night 6.1 is a very bad program that will create SnoringLoudly.wav files.

Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-Law 1.0 or reinstall another
Boyfriend program. These are not supported applications and will crash
Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have a limited
memory and cannot learn new applications quickly.

You might consider additional software to improve memory and performance. I personally recommend Hot Tasty Food 3.0 and Tongkat Ali 6.9.

Good Luck,
IT Support
