Ubuntu causes girl to drop out of college — h3h3 reaction video

, , 100 Comments


[H3H3 theme song plays] – “That’s when she called me. She thought her laptop was coming with Windows, instead she got that thing called: Ubuntu. pronunciation was the least of her problems.” – Have you guys ever heard of Ubuntu? Well, I had neither until I saw this news report. Apparently, it’s a linux based operating system that Dell’s been just pawning off on people, on their PCs and completely ruining their lives. – “Well, odds are you don’t use the word Ubuntu very often or maybe not at all. It’s a type operating system for your computer,
similar to Windows, but it is not windows and what works on Windows doesn’t always work on Ubuntu.” – Well, odds are you don’t use the word Ubuntu very often. [pretentious laugh] UBUNTU?! [pretentious laugh] What is that? Oh, it’s Linux? [pretentious laugh] Ubuntu? Pleeease! Ubuntu? [Ethan Klein Cough™] – “Abby Schubert’s life was supposed to start getting easier with this new Dell laptop, but let’s be clear. It’s not.” plop ploop ploop ploop plop
[Ethan imitates computer sound] I’m on my computer. WOOOAH?!
What is this? It’s not Windows! AAAHHHH! – “Ubuntu might look a lot like Windows, but it sure doesn’t act like it. That’s because her Verizon Internet CD won’t load on Ubuntu.” – Holy fuck, man! She’s trying to get-, she didn’t have the internet?! [Shouting] UBUNTUUUUU! Not again, it didn’t give her the internet! They forgot to install the CD-ROM the internet. – “The entire internet is located on this CD-ROM.” – I’m not one to judge a book by its cover, but that is a ffff-, ssss-stupid- stupid, vacant face. I mean, there’s not much behind there.
I can tell just by looking at her. She’s out to lunch, She- She went out to lunch she never came home, okey? That is just the empty attic right there. Boy, just a couple marbles and couple cobwebs; couple of tumbleweeds just blown around in the- dusty, dusty noon. – “They tried to-, umm. Get on the internet on it and that did not work.” – Try Again. She clearly did everything, guys. She- She opened up the internet. It didn’t work. she clicked “Try Again.” She’s clearly done everything! It’s time to call the local news here. “Um, did you try clicking the a “Try Again” button? Oh yeah, I tried that. Okay, well, I see you’ve done-, you’ve exhausted all your options. So, let me go ahead and just get you the a-, white knight. Who is going to take care of all your problems. A fine young man, 30 years old, he’s virgin, by the way. Makes him a real GO-getter. He’s gonna come out to you. He’s gonna help you out with all your problems. Oh, terrific!” – “And I found out that Microsoft Word is not compatible- And Ubuntu comes with OpenOffice and not Word.” By the time she found all these out, Dell said it was too late to go back to Windows. That’s because her Verizon internet CD won’t load on Ubuntu. And the internet is simple to install. Dell said it was too late to go back to Windows. And this semester? It’s too late to go back to MATC. Extremely frustrated I am- just I’m sick of it. and I wanted to get back to school, but I need the computer to be able to do that.” [Shouting] – You don’t need to drop out of college because you got a different operating system! And you thought it doesn’t matter, you can just tell them! And enter you college though- by telephone or go there! [slow] – “I need the computer to be able to do that.” [Shouting] – Or you can just uninstall and reinstall Windows. That would- That would work just fine! [Shouting] Can you hear me?! Can you hear me, please?! I can help you! You don’t need to go to the news for this! Please, listen to me! – “Well, that was the course before she called 27 News and we were able to help her. We’re still waiting to hear from Dell, to what they have to say about this. But we are going to be able to help Abbey get back to school.” – Great! He’s helping her get back to school. I guess he got her a new laptop, right? That would make sense. – “I called MATC this afternoon they said, “No problem, she can enroll in any of their classes with what she’s already got installed on her machine.” Then I called Verizon about that CD that wasn’t working. And they said the CD might not work, but they will still be able to get a tech support crew to her house so she can start using the internet with her current machine, Ubuntu.” – Well of course, that was before she called us at Channel Fuck Me News. Well, I’ve made couple phone calls on behalf of her and I acted like an adult for her. What I did is I called the school. They said: “Of course you don’t need a laptop to enroll. What are you? Fucking Brain-Dead?!” And then I called Verizon and they said: “Of course you don’t need to CD to install the internet. What are you? Fucking Brain-Dead?!” and I was like, “No, I am just calling on behalf of a-uh stupid, young woman. Completely vacant, brain dead in the head. In the hopes of me getting in to her panties. Cause I’m 30 years on and I’ve never had sex and- my father got me this job in broadcasting. This is the only thing I can do to bargain to try ‘n get some pussy. ‘Cause I’m just a complete fucking wet towel. I mean, my life is completely worthless! This is what I do. I can’t believe it!” – “Pronunciation, she might have to work on that a little bit, but at least you can get back to school and start doing what she wants to do. What a huge hassle? Yeah.” – What a huge hassle. Oh! Boy! What a huge hassle [pretentious laugh] UBUNTU?! [pretentious laugh] [Ethan Klein Cough ™] – “A dumb girl, lazy, not worthy of a college degree. Unscrupulous reporting! 27 News is incompetent. A new low for local news.” [Shouting] – HELLLOOOOOOO! Sometimes, I get the feeling that nobody’s really listen to me. ♫ An unoriginal ♫ [horn sounds] pew-pew, ♫ Production ♫

    You know when I first saw Ethan I didn’t understand him. But my hate was rooted in misunderstanding and jealousy. H3h3 is awesome and his wife is quite lively

    I bought a laptop that has Ubuntu without a graphical user interface. So I obviously called donald trump, the army and santaclaus. What else is there to do?

    This is pretty pathetic as far as local news desperation, but nothing takes the cake from last years 10 minute news segment focusing on an overflowing dumpster disaster behind an apartment complex. They added dramatic music and interviewed several residents that made this dumpster sound like a total landfill with hundreds of rats etc.,……they finally show the dumpster at the end of the segment and it turns out to be simply a full dumpster with three trash bags stacked next to it and someone’s old couch leaned against it.

    Was this lady from 2001? Why did such a simple ass problem require the local news, a call to the school, a tech support crew, and a call to her service provider?

    BSD – Berkeley software distribution. A college created an operating system but she can't come up with the resources to resolve this? Why would anyone hire her if she needs everyone to think for her and hold her hand.

    Broooo. There's a program called WINE that allows Windows programs to run on Ubuntu. That's all you have to do.

    I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

    Lmaoooo. I’m in my 6th year of college and have never been able to afford a computer or a laptop and I’ve done just fine. Schools have libraries for a reason.

    Just a random comment here. Anyone suffers from the Ubuntu problem at laptops that when you change the volume it will freeze for 2 or 3 seconds before changing the volume? Actually couldn't find the solution yet

    Ubuntu means humane-ness or humanity in Zulu. I feel my culture has been appropriated. In the name of Hugh Mungus, I demand compensation!!!!
