Got this in the email today, thought that since Linux isn't 
specifically mentioned, someone might be able to come up with a 
catchy "Skys of Linux" description.


What if Operating Systems were Airlines?

UNIX Airways
Everyone brings one piece of the plane along when they come to the airport.
They all go out on the runway and put the plane together piece by piece,
arguing non-stop about what kind of plane they are supposed to be building.

Everybody pushes the airplane until it glides; then they jump on and let
the plane coast until it hits the ground again. They then push again, jump
on again, and so on...

Mac Airlines
All the stewards, captains, baggage handlers, and ticket agents look and
act exactly the same. Every time you ask questions about details, you are
gently but firmly told that you don't need to know, don't want to know, and
everything will be done for you without your ever having to know, so just
shut up.

Windows Air
The airport terminal is pretty and colourful, with friendly stewards, easy
baggage check and boarding, and a smooth take-off. After about 10 minutes
in the air the plane explodes with no warning whatsoever.
