    I’ve just done a joke “What OS are you?” quiz on BBspot:  

    My result, to my delight, was:

    I went ahead and gave it a try.  Unfortunately, I’m not OS X.  However, I am Debian Linux.

    I think that’s pretty decent myself.  :D

    It depends on what you look at, obviously,
    But even more it depends on the way that you see

    The explanation makes sense, but I was kind of hoping for something a little more exciting than…

    Guess it would help if I wasn’t so damn boring… smile

    At least I wasn’t given Windows ME - I’d have to go shower right away.

    I wound up OS/2 Warp.  I have feelings of abandonment and think everyone else missed the boat.

    Hmm.  I have the awful feeling this may be true :o

    This is a remarkably prescient test - I’m really impressed with how everyone is coming out on it - and how much it hit me on the mark.  Thanks for pointing it out, LaurieF.

    OS X all the way baby.  And, yes, if I had ended up Windows ME someone WOULD be getting hurt.  Badly.

    Um, do what?  Run that by me again.

    There is more variety in answers than I realized at first.  I did not even know that HP-UX was an option.

    What she means is that the test (I came up as WinXP, btw) is more than a little patrifocal in nature.  It was definitely designed by a man for men.  In fact, it was designed for straight men at that.  I thought I was the only one who noticed until I saw jinkies’ post. smile
