True Story - also shamelessly stolen from twitter (https://twitter.com/nixcraft/status/979621040992079872)
@finux My fav is Arch, which is pretty similar to Gentoo here.
@minego it's like that old joke;
Q: How many Gentoo developers does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Pffft, it's not that dark!!!
You could easily re-purpose that for Arch :D
@finux The Arch answer would be: No idea, but here are 13 wiki pages describing all your lightbulb options, and dependencies, and instructions, etc.
@minego you forgot 13 'outdated' wiki pages 😂
@finux That would have been better.
@finux Used to be the last one was Slackware's spot. Except cutting off the branch so you *can't* go back.
@Nezchan oh my days now that is going back, it's been a long time since someone utter the words 'slackware' to me
@finux My friend compared Windows (at the time CP) as an overly friendly but incompetent waiter. "Oh, you'll love this! I know you didn't order it but it's wonderful! Oh, I'm sorry I spilled it all in your lap!".
Meanwhile Slack was the surly cook who throws a bunch of raw ingredients on the table and says "Here, make the damn thing yourself."
@finux XP, not CP. That's what I get for not paying attention.
@Nezchan the horrid truth is XP was probably their best OS too
@finux Hey, don't you disrespect Microsoft BOB!
@Nezchan the brighter the candle the sooner the darkness - RIP BOB
@finux BSD: kicks you off the branch, but gives you a manual on flying first
Arch: "Fly, don't fly. idc tbh."
Debian: "you can't flap your wings that way, it's proprietary"
RHEL: "you need a license before you fly"
