10 Most Common Comments that I heard about my Linux laptop while traveling

Posted on 14 June 2009

Due to my work I have to travel daily from train. It’s a 50 minutes ride and I am riding train from last 5 years. In that daily 50 minutes train ride I use to read books, sleep or work on my Ubuntu loaded laptop.

10 Best Comments about my Linux laptop

In this long time of daily train riding I had collected few funny comments that I heard so many times.

From those here are the 10 best ones that I am sharing here.

  1. One teenager saying to another “ it’s a Mac, not the Windows
  2. So many times I’ve been asked directly by different people in train about my laptop “ where is its start button?”
  3. One person to another pointing to my laptop and saying “ he must be in Marketing, and he is making a new picture” the other one saying “ I don’t know, his dress is not like Marketing person”
  4. Some time people say me directly that why don’t I work in IT.
  5. Two business men talking to each other about me considering me as a hacker “ don’t turn your computer on bill, that guy can look into it!”
  6. Two teenagers whispering to each other “ How did he get Vista so much earlier?”
  7. A man talking on cell phone in train said this “ yeah, I am surrounded by yuppies, kids, drones and two people using Linux”
  8. Some time gets conversation with fellow travelers in train and most of time they points towards my laptop screen and says “ what the hell is that?” and after that they start a long conversation on computers.
  9. There was a guy with Sony VAIO running Vista asked me that “ can you game on it?”
  10. Tow Mac users sitting beside me talking to each other “ they stole that spinning cube thing from a Mac!”
