I'm only 15 days into my current boot and X has gone haywire, it's so
slow that many of my programs are unusable.

Look at that memory profile and all that time it's wasted me!!!
GODDAMN!!! =(( This is outrageous for such an absurdly short uptime...
Maybe if it was after three months I could possibly understand, but
fifteen measily days? PATHETIC!!!!
Tell me what about this OS I should like?
In other news I've been playing some Dungeon Keeper on my DOS machine,
(P150/64megs) and it plays nice and smooth, it can provide you with a 3D
doom-like first person perspective with no acceleration while it is
simulating a clossal dungeon, much of which you constructed yourself,
and only slows down when you have 20 creatures in close combat casting
lots of spells on each other. =P It's probably one of the most
technically impressive games I own.
Want to know my favorite thing about DOS? IT NEVER DOES ANYTHING THAT
YOU DON'T >>>NEED<<< IT TO.
If you need it done, DOS does it. Then you gotta figure out how to spend
the rest of your day....
Linux wastes your time like it doesn't matter then you gotta spend the
rest of your day figuring out why it's so broken. =(
DO NOT USE OBAMACARE.
DO NOT BUY OBAMACARE.
