Since there is a chance I may have to use a computer with Windows and other Microsoft stuff at work some time after the Easter holidays, I feel like sharing this e-mail joke I received today:

A helicopter was flying around above Seattle when an electrical malfunction disabled all of the aircraft’s electronic navigation and communication equipment. Due to the clouds and haze the pilot could not determine his position or course to steer to the airport.The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it, circled, drew a handwritten sign and held it in the helicopter’s window.

The sign said “WHERE AM I”? in large letters.

People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large sign an held it in a building window. The sign said, “YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER”.

The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map and determined the course to steer to Seattle/Tacoma airport and landed safely.

After they were on the ground, the co-pilot asked the pilot how the “YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER” sign helped determine their position. The pilot responded, ” I knew that had to be the Microsoft building because they gave me a technically correct but completely useless answer”.

Let us hope, though, that I am going to be able to convince the people who need to be convinced that switching to Ubuntu is a good idea.
