Linux All of us who use computers create a problem we rarely consider. How do we dispose of them? This is no small concern. Estimates put the number of personal computers in use world-wide today at about one billion. The average lifespan of a personal computer is only two to five years. We can expect a tidal wave of computers ready for disposal shortly, and this number will only increase. And as if that isn't challenge enough, there are already several hundred million computers out-of-service, sitting in attics and basements and garages, awaiting disposal.

Slashdot called and they wanted their meme back.

Seriously though, which of his points do you consider a "joke"?

All of it - as all his/her posts. nt_jerkface is a troll and is what his/her name suggests. That's about all. The same could be said about ronaldst, who is probably the strongest MS-fanboy at OSN. Neither poster have any credibility what-so-ever.

nt_jerkface never fails to attack GNU/Linux (and occasionally also *BSD) whenever it is beneficial for MS. The same goes for ronaldst.
