Well, I really like this picture, but I interpret it in a somewhat different due to my experience in linux (I love linux). I see a penguin who got a computer "outdated" because it uses windows (xp suppose). Then our penguin friend decided that with some lightweight linux distribution computer again be fully functional and supported. But the expression on his face is one that is having problems with drivers (but not confundad, he enjoys it)

Bien, me gusta mucho esta imagen, pero yo la interpreto de una forma un tanto distinta debido a mi propia experiencia en linux (yo amo linux). Yo veo un pinguino que consiguio un ordenador "pasado de moda" porque usa windows (supongamos xp). Entonces, nuestro amigo pinguino decidio que con alguna distribucion liviana de linux el ordenador volveria a ser completamente funcional y compatible. Pero la expresion de su rostro es por que esta teniendo alguno problemas con los drivers (pero no se confundad, el lo disfruta)

No doubt Linux has it's benefits, but do you really want to install everything from a Terminal window?

True. I was kinda playing the devil's advocate considering I'm running Linux Mint.

Lmao. Yeah, it really is frustrating to use Windows XP (and especially newer versions) after using Linux.

It's like, why should a computer come with built-in problems? @_@ I really like how you drew this, though. It's amusing. XD
