    Smile What medicine do Unix geeks take...

    Q: What medicine do Unix/Linux geeks take when they have really bad sinus congestion?

    A: Sudophedrine

    (sorry, I just couldn't get that out of my head. Or the mucus or that matter :P )

    Oh That's for Linux users. Unix admins aren't afraid to login as root.

    Say the word ohhhhhhh su su.....

    "Sudophedrine"

    I don't get it--do you mean "sudoephedrine"?

    And Unix doesn't use "sudo", unless they've changed it--that's a Linux construct. "su"

    You can add sudo to Unix, of course, but, ... at least I don't ...

    Ok, Linux geeks then. Thought I had seen it elsewhere. It has been a while. It looks like "doas" is a newer thing.

    Hmm, Wikipedia says it started out on "Unix-like" systems but it does not specify: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudo (although they might want to fix that URL for pedantics that are sensitive to upper case characters )
