This was inspired by the recent file making its rounds on the Net
describing how to shoot yourself in the foot in a variety of
programming languages. Now, the madness is extended to operating
systems:

Unix:
     You shoot yourself in the foot.

DOS:
     You keep running up against the one-bullet barrier.

MS-Windows:
     The gun blows up in your hand.

Windows NT:
     The gun is so huge and unwieldy that you have to keep swapping it
     from
one hand to the other.

OS/2:
     The gun and the bullet aren't speaking to each other any more.

Mac Finder:
     It's easy to shoot yourself in the foot -- just point and shoot.

AIX:
     You can shoot yourself in the foot with either a .38 or a .45.

IRIX:
     The Terminator shoots you in the foot. A T-Rex bites your other
     foot.

SVR4:
     The gun isn't compatible with your foot.

Minix:
     You learn how to shoot yourself in the foot with a Saturday Night
Special.

Linux:
     Generous programmers from around the world all join forces to
     help you
shoot yourself in the foot for free.

HURD:
     You'll be able to shoot yourself in the foot Real Soon Now.

VM/CMS:
     IBM shoots you in the foot.

VMS:
     \FOOT\ ambiguous: supply more toes.

AMIGA-DOS:
     The gun works pretty well, except that few people use one and
     it's
impossible to find bullets.

Mach:
     The bullets work pretty well, but they don't make guns for it any
more.

Cray:
     You shoot yourself in the foot with an Uzi.

MasPar:
     You shoot all of your friends' feet simultaneously.
