    Back in the day, OS/2 Warp was waaaay better than the Micro$tink thing, whether it was called 3.1, 95, 98 or Me. But it appeared too late to make its place and could not stand a chance.

    It is obvious that a pretentious artiste would be using a Mac.

    these are ‘classic’ Dilbert, probably by the time when Apple used another family of CPUs (Power PC). Though today when you open a Mac by yourself is not the office police, but Apple police out to get you. By the way, many Linux distros are or have booter versions, so you can have your PC, yet you can boot it on Linux and work with Linux; or even more, maybe this cartoon is pre-virtualization era

    IBM / Microsoft were concentrating on business oriented software and letting other software companies develop other applications. Apple was working to develop integrated solutions Like graphic software, publishing software. Engineering software?

    Thus was born the resistance, though in the end it was altogether too passive.

    Neither UNIX nor OS/2 are computers, Ratbert…

    This was probably done when it was still dial-up Internet.

    That Linux isn’t mentioned (and OS/2 is) shows just how old this strip is.

    I used Geoworks for a while. They started out as an 8 bit GUI for Commodore 64 and Apple II, then went to a 16 bit DOS system but had too many issues trying to go to a 32 bit OS and basically died out. The original (DOS) version of AOL was based on the Geoworks platform.

    No! No! Not the Inquisition! I confess! I am part of the Mac-using Minority and don’t give a rat’s a$$ (you should pardon the expression, Ratbert) about the PC crowd’s endless complaints….
