What If Operating Systems Were Houses


#1

Unixis the old Victorian Mansion that was the first of it’s kind and set the standard for all things to come.

It is still considered one of the most solid and stable houses ever built since it was build by compliant construction practices.

It’s incredibly solid foundation allows it to be expanded upon and added to. This foundation has led to many other houses being built the same way and with the same compliance and care.

Windowsis the government housing.

The houses are built quickly, cheaply and go up anywhere and everywhere.

Unfortunately since they were all built so cheaply, you end up spending twice as much later to keep the place standing.

The foundation is shaky at best and anytime you hang a picture, you worry about knocking the entire house down.

You constantly have to call the exterminator to keep the bugs out and everytime you remove a piece of furniture, there are always parts of it left behind.

Mac OS X is the modern day mansion.

It’s built from the ground up using the same sturdy foundation as the Victorian Mansion.

When you look inside, every room is the exact same and is in pristine condition. The floors are so clean there is a mirror reflection of every item in the house and the lights are positioned perfectly to make everything look just perfect…just the way the owner wanted it, so don’t touch!

Once the builders were finished with the house, the owner had the front door locked, the doorknob removed and put bars on the windows so no one could get in to touch or move anything because that’s not the way he intended. If you don’t like it? Go screw yourself because he doesn’t care what you think.

Government housing owners start looking at other options and stumble on the mansion. They are awed by it’s beauty and blindly follow. Once they get their house, they realize it’s designed for handicapped people. They can’t get in the house because the owner doesn’t trust anyone using his design because he already designed everything just the way he wanted it and can’t imagine how anyone could possibly think it should have been done differently.

…but of course, it’s for your own good……you retard.

Linux is the carpenter/designer’s dream house.

The foundation is rock solid and is inspected every year by thousands of the best carpenters all over the world.

The house is everything you want, if you know what you’re doing. It’s all there for you. The doors, windows, walls and roof. You ‘get’ to assemble it yourself any way you like.

Once it’s finished, you rarely have to repair anything and will never have to tear it down and start from scratch. It’s designed in a way that allows it to be built upon until it’s turned into a skyscraper or left as is.

Everyone on the block is envious and wants to know how you bought such a beautiful house so cheaply. After you explain to them that you built it yourself, they leave in disgust and never talk to you again because you’re one of “them”.
