Scott Lazar, who wrote the Grinch That Stole Linux for Groklaw, has been inspired again, this time by the last article where I wrote, "So that's the plan, Stan", and has come up with another parody for us, Fifty Ways to Leave Your Windows. Enjoy.

Fifty Ways to Leave Your Windows,

by Scott Lazar


"The problem is all inside your OS",
Linus said to me
The answer is easy if you
Take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle
To be free
There must be fifty ways
To leave your Windows

He said it's really not my habit
To intrude
Furthermore, I hope my coding
Won't be lost or misconstrued
But I created it myself
Despite IBM being sued
There must be fifty ways
To leave your Windows
Fifty ways to leave your Windows

CHORUS:
Ooo try the new Red Hat,
Or the new SuSE, Bruce
You don't need XP Pro, Joe
Just get yourself free
Hop on the F/OSS, Gus
You don't need to spend much
Just download with ease, Lee
And get yourself free

Linus said it grieves me so
To see your server in such pain
I know there is much you can do
To make it secure again
I said I appreciate that
And would you please explain
About the fifty ways

Linus said why don't you
Just give it a try tonight
And I believe very shortly
You'll begin to see the light
And then I tried it
And realized Linus was absolutely right
There must be fifty ways
To leave your Windows
Fifty ways to leave your Windows

CHORUS:
Ooo try the new Red Hat,
Or the new SuSE, Bruce
You don't need XP Pro, Joe
Just listen to me
Hop on the F/OSS, Gus
You don't need to spend much
Just download with ease, Lee
And get yourself free
