I was upstairs in the office working on the servers when I hear a ruckus on the monitor from downstairs. Some know-it-all Wintard was arguing with one of my techs about the advantages of Windows over Linux, blah-de-blah, same stuff we read here on COLA all the time.
I decided to have a little fun with him, so I ring my tech up over the intercom and tell him to have the guy sit at one of the systems and talk to it, then I hung up. Logged onto the firewall-dhcp server and looked for the IP of the system the guy booted, then I logged in via ssh.
I have festival installed on all the workstations, so while I'm listening to this guy over the monitor, I'm responding to him via the festival speech engine on the system downstairs. Of course, he's clueless, but the tech soon caught on to what I was doing.

So he's giving his version of the turing test, asking all kinds of questions that no computer would ever be able to answer with today's technology. And I'm upstairs LMAO responding to him in kind, and he's like, "NO F*CKING WAY!", "THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE!", etc. My tech is somehow holding a straight face through this, I'm in tears upstairs so bad I can hardly type.
After a few minutes of this, the guy is totally freaked out and takes off, no doubt to do some more research into Linux and OSS. Me and my tech sit down and pee ourselves cracking up for a good half hour at this idiot
Man, I LOVE Linux! :-))
