G o N E logoNew Economy survivors add their own stories to a song about the dot-carnage...or just enjoy what others have written.


C prompt graphic

GUI? Phooey!

Windows is for weaklings, and so's the Macintosh
Don't need no stinkin' GUI
Just gimme MS-DOS


Gimme back my C-prompt
My MDA display
Nothin' that's worth doin' should exceed 640k.


I don't need no filenames of more than eight-dot-three
That's how God, and IBM, intended them to be


Sometimes I boot from floppys for that ataviatic thrill
I regard my hard disk an unnecessary frill


So hang up your sinkin' rodent by its ever-present tail
I'll stick with my command line
About, retry, or fail
