Hehe.. My guess based on the map shown in the comic is that those OSnews readers who get offended by the comic this time could be those who are living in Alaska and other northwestern parts of North America?? ;)

Looks like I'm a Windows 2008 Server zealot. And I certainly never expected to have occasion to say that on this site! ;)

Oh well. Could be worse. Looks like RMS is a Windows NT zealot. Expect an email. ;-)

Not really. I used to draw detailed and MUCH larger maps of imaginary worlds - those took days and days to make.

This one was done in under 40 minutes.

Hey, I am very happy that I live in OS X land!!!!! Actually, I can't quite work out if Adelaide is in the eastern part on that map or the west. I'm guessing the west as the divider looks like it follows the South Australian borders...

Wonder if I should print this and try playing... I'm sure I can finally get OS X to dominate the world - <insert evil laugh here>

Hmm, I live in SkyOS and I don't even know anything about it.

I lived in Syllable for a while, too. I was actually working at the same company as the guy who created AtheOS, from which Syllable was forked.

Windows? All of North America is Windows? Come on, couldn't you of at least made Red Hat/Fedora a Rhode Island sized piece so we don't have to be 100% Windows? Their American aren't they?
