Similarities between (Girls and Windows) and (Boys and Linux)

September 21, 2006

Girls and Windows

  • Both have a great UI.
  • Both consume large resources and do less work.
  • Both crash unexpectedly.
  • Both are not easily portable on different architectures (environment).
  • Both can’t work on low resource architectures (environment).
  • Both are costly to maintain.
  • Both give mostly unexpected outputs.
  • Both’s working often contradicts with their documentation.
  • Both are easily prone to viruses (rumors and doubts) (and they (viruses) do spread very fast in windows based networks).
  • In spite of all above disadvantages, both are liked.

Boys and Linux

  • Both have an average UI.
  • Both are robust.
  • Both are highly secure.
  • Both can be easily modified to support new concepts/features.
  • Both are efficient.
  • Both are easily portable to any architecture (environment) no matter how low are resources.
  • You can easily guess the output for your input (in Linux just open its code, for boys they are mostly transparent by natureJ).
  • Both provide large support for development (work environment).
  • Both are poorly documented.

    JL : Unfortunately or fortunately, there aren’t many of the feminie breed that drop by my blog. Or even if they do, they wish to hold their silence, in a lady like fashion rather than voice out their opinion.

    Not forgetting Savi, Sach and a few who actually bother.

    Game on :
    I know the comparison is flawed, but I chose to upload it, as it is instead of altering.

    Personally Linux, unlike those days are well documented. This is mostly handled by communities of volunteers. For the women folk who want to know what guys think, go to
