It Didn't Happen Quite This Way

Friend: Can you help me with a Windows Exchange problem?

Me (somewhat later): Sorry I was away, I had the kids by myself for the day.

Friend: It's OK, I used the standard Windows solution on the problem.

Me: What, complain helplessly to the internet, while Linux fan-boys chirp at you with helpful suggestions to dump all your windows systems and replace them with some dodgy open source project?

Friend: Well actually I meant a reboot, but I am planning to replace this whole thing with <project> on BSD.

Me: See? You're ahead of me on this.
