“DOS is for those who want to know why their computer doesn’t work”

An operating system joke was posted on the newsgroup de.comm.infosystems.www.servers by Nikolaus Rath on March 5, 2001:
     
“Macs are for those who don’t want to know why their computer works.
Linux is for those who want to know why their computer works.
DOS is for those who want to know why their computer doesn’t work.
Windows is for those who don’t want to know why their computer doesn’t work.”
