Ever wonder what driving to the store would be like if operating systems ran your car?

MS-DOS: You get in the car and try to remember where to put your keys.

Windows: You get in the car and drive to the store very slowly,

because attached to the back of your car is a freight train.

Macintosh System 7: You get in the car to go to the store and the car drives you to church.

UNIX: You get in the car and type GREP STORE.

After reaching speeds of 200 mph en route, you arrive at the barber shop.

Windows NT: You get in the car and write a letter that says, «Go to the store.»

Then you get out of your car and mail the letter to your dashboard.

Taligent/Pink: You walk to the store with Richardo Montalban,

who tells you how wonderful it will be when he can fly you to the store in his Learjet.

OS/2: After fueling up with 6,000 gallons of gas, you get in the car and

drive to the store with a motorcycle escort and a marching band in procession.

Halfway there, the car blows up, killing everyone in town.

5/36 SSP: You get in the car and drive to the store. Halfway there, you run out of gas.

While walking the rest of the way, you are run over by kids on mopeds.

OS/400: An attendant locks you in the car and then drives you to the store,

where you get to watch everyone else buy filet mignons.
