Linux is dough, windows is glass.

"Now lets simulate an operating system crash using analogy's. If you have children, or are a big child yourself (I am fat, grey and balding yet still a child :) then you most probably know about play-doh (tm). If you can grab a hold of some then take a handful and throw it at the floor as hard as you can. What happens? It goes splat, and flattens out but is still in one piece. That is what happens when Linux crashes.

"Next find a piece of glass, it could be an old window pain, a bottle (preferably empty from the beer you just finished) or a regular glass that you won't miss. Take that glass and throw it as hard as you can against the floor. What happens? Of course it smashes into a million pieces. OK, not a million pieces but I am claiming artistic license here :) This is what happens when windows crashes."
