Can you imagine Windows on the Tracking Point rifle? The soldier has a evil terrorist in his sights is about to pull the trigger and sees " please save all work now, Windows needs to reboot after a update"

 

 

A few years ago the International space station switched to Linux because it seems even in space with no internet connection Windows got a virus. :hysterical:

 

 

in 2008, a Russian cosmonaut brought a laptop aboard with the W32.Gammima.AG worm, which quickly spread to the other laptops on board. Switching to Linux will essentially immunize the ISS against future infections.

Now, if you're old enough, try to picture that line being spoken by that guy with the deep, sinister voice who used to do all the movie trailers...

 

(cue creepy music)

In space...

with no internet connection...

Windows got a virus...

 

That's a sci-fi/horror film I'd pay to see :tvhorror:


Gen. Barker - You haven't heard the last of this!!

Hawkeye Pierce - I wasn't listening to the first of it...
