[Comic for Friday, January 8, 2010]


Nick: Linux has thoroughly invaded the mobile market. Palm has WebOS, Google has Android, there's OpenMoko, Bug Labs, Limo...

Fooker: Don't make me laugh.

Fooker: By Randal Schwartz's karaoke lyrics, if I can only make run Vi, Emacs, or Nano...
Nick: Ahem... There's an app for that.
