My Geeky Retired Mother

Recently, someone posted a YouTube video showing what happens when the super-user issues the dreaded “rm -rf /” command on a Ubuntu system. I was describing it to my mother, who has lived with my geekiness for 35 years:

Me: “Do you know what happens when you delete all the files on a Linux system?”

My Geeky Retired Mom: “You don’t get a C: prompt, do you?”

Haw haw haw! Good one, Mom!
