Welcome to the wondeful and ridiculous world of Linux Tycoon! For DOS!
The original version of Linux Tycoon was written (for Linux, Windows, and Mac) as a bit of a goof.
This is the DOS version, written entirely in Visual BASIC for DOS.
Also as a bit of a goof.
A game. Where you simulate running a Linux Distribution project. In DOS.
Is it fun?
Is it worth downloadng?
See. I mean. The entire file size is like 100k. So. You know. Even if you hate it... it'll be quick to download!
== Download ==
== System Requirements ==
== How to Install ==
Copy the file LINUXT.EXE anywhere you like.
Because there's just one file.
And it can live anywhere.
== How to Run ==
There's... just one file.
== Release Notes ==
= Version 0.9.2
== Links 'N Such ==
That's a great URL. That'll probably go somewhere.
== Neat-O Mosquito! ==
Yer darn skippy.

I believe there are a couple naughty words in this one. From back on my "occasionally use a naughty word" days.
This is the 2020 installment of "Linux Sucks" -- originally released on May 28th, 2020.
The Internet was being stupid. Or perhaps it was just Google. Either way, the chat got way out of sync at one point. Which was both frustrating... and highly amusing. ;)
Thanks for all the nerdy questions, everyone! Made for a fun evening!
It sorted out in Part 2. :)
Thinking about the DOS Subsystem for Linux. Because it's fun.
The first chapter of Linux Sucks is available for supporters (either here on Locals or over on Substack)! Chapter 2 hits later this week! If you haven’t already, sign up and get the chapters as they roll out.
Plus, and I totally didn't mention this in the show, but audio book chapters of Linux Sucks will be released as subscriber only exclusive episodes. With the first two audio chapters dropping later this week. Pretty rad.
Should computer A.I. have rights? What about SkyNet... or Johnny 5?
I have so many thoughts on the story “Missouri man fighting for right of computers to hold patents”.
Big day tomorrow. Got a thing to unbox and setup at work. Anyone care to guess what’s in the box? (don’t mind the mess in my office).
A new Amiga 1200 accelerator board has appeared: the Tsunami 1230.
New hardware upgrade (with a 68030 CPU) for a nearly 30 year old computer. Love it.
In order to post or comment, you'll need to become a paying member. This supports the work I do -- and also keeps out the riff raff. ;)
The rules around here are super simple:
1) Be Excellent to Each Other.
2) No cursin' or posting material you couldn't show on prime-time TV in the 1980's.
That's it, really! Be cool and keep it clean so folks can enjoy this at work and around their kids.
Oh, and nerdiness is encouraged. The nerdier the better.
