Humor: Linux Genuine Advantage program

Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) is a controversial anti-piracy program initiated by Microsoft that requires users of Microsoft Windows to validate the authenticity of their copy of several recent Microsoft operating systems when accessing several Microsoft Windows services, such as Windows Update, and downloading from the Microsoft Download Center.

Now you have a Linux Genuine Advantage program 😉
Linux Genuine Advantage is an exciting and mandatory new way for you to place your computer under the remote control of an untrusted third party!

According to an independent study conducted by some scientists, many users of Linux are running non-Genuine versions of their operating system. This puts them at the disadvantage of having their computers work normally, without periodically phoning home unannounced to see if it’s OK for their computer to continue functioning. These users are also missing out on the Advantage of paying ongoing licensing fees to ensure their computer keeps operating properly.

    LOL 😉

    The WGA misery and nagging is one of the main reasons I’m moving towards Linux even for my desktop use.
