Tech’s Poem for those Linux folks like me and my son Karl.
Twas the night before Christmas
And all round the house
the only things stirring
Were me and my mouse.
I was working with windows
It was making me fractious,
And I knew that quite soon
I would have to take actions.
It slowed and it stuttered
And finally froze
Then showed a blue screen at the end of my nose,
My anger was rising and thoughts turned quite bad,
“PC through the window, was one that I had”
But my genetics and lineage ensured my calm;
And decided, the computer should come to no harm.
The O/S is to blame, and will never improve
I was conned by Bill Gates and this upgraded move.
Then I had an idea as I sat in my muse,
I have other options like Mandrake or Suse;
Or Debian, Red Hat, or Fedora Core,
PClinux, Ubuntu and so many more..
So I set to downloading a distro named Suse;
And burned a CD for this data to use,
It all went so smoothly,”I waited for hitches”,
As my mind was attuned to the Microsoft glitches!
I entered the disc in my CD Rom drive
And sat back, and watched my PC come alive,
As it smoothly installed the O/S Suse 10
I know I will never use windows again.
So to all you users of Microsoft software,
With its viruses, Trojans, and various Malware,
Blue screens, and freezes, and drivers to find,
Registry problems that muddle the mind
Take a leaf out of my book, “give Linux a try”,
Its all free of charge, with no programs to buy,
With so many versions of this excellent kernel
The choices you have are almost eternal
So download a distro that won’t cost a penny,
The flavours of linux are varied and many
You’ll find one to suit, I’m sure of this;
And using your PC, will once more be bliss.
