Retired Teacher If Operating Systems Ran The Airlines... UNIX Airways - Everyone brings one piece of the plane along when they come to the airport. They all go out on the runway and put the plane together piece by piece, arguing non-stop about what kind of plane they are supposed to be building. Air DOS - Everybody pushes the airplane until it glides, then they jump on and let the plane coast until it hits the ground again. Then they push again, jump on again, and so on... Mac Airlines - All the stewards, captains, baggage handlers, and ticket agents look and act exactly the same. Every time you ask questions about details, you are gently but firmly told that you don't need to know, don't want to know, and everything will be done for you without your ever having to know, so just shut up. Windows Air - The terminal is pretty and colourful, with friendly stewards, easy baggage check and boarding, and a smooth take-off. After about 10 minutes in the air, the plane explodes with no warning whatsoever. Linux Air - Disgruntled employees of all the other OS airlines decide to start their own airline. They build the planes, ticket counters, and pave the runways themselves. They charge a small fee to cover the cost of printing the ticket, but you can also download and print the ticket yourself.

When you board the plane, you are given a seat, four bolts, a wrench and a copy of the seat-HOWTO.html. Once settled, the fully adjustable seat is very comfortable, the plane leaves and arrives on time without a single problem, the in-flight meal is wonderful. You try to tell customers of the other airlines about the great trip, but all they can say is, "You had to do what with the seat?"

Cambridge Friends School "I agree with Gerald about the children taking charge of technology. For 6 and 7 years old children, that holds true. At the start, many children may be asking for a lot of help because they are used to instant gratification based on their experience on video games and other games they play on computers. But when we frame the learning experience as "exploring activities" rather than "play games," their mindset shifts, and so does their behavior. They begin responding to each other's questions, e.g., "Oh, I know how to do that. Let me show you." They talk to each other as they explore." Gerald Ardito
