Not Yet?

This is the story of a fictional boy, his fictional laptop and the fictional operating system “Mado QG”, a piece of software (in the most liberal sense of that word) that takes its sweet time starting up.

It’s all a thinly veiled jab at Microsoft Windows, with the added benefit of being a fun way to learn some Japanese (I hope). Um…yeah, I don’t actually hate Microsoft, and Windows XP is actually really good, I think. But it would be uncomptutergeekish to not make fun of the world’s favorite OS.

For a translation/explanation, scroll down to the bottom :), after the story panels. Enjoy!

Oh, and here’s the audio for the story. The background music is by Kevin McLeod (thanks!). He takes donations, too ;).
Mada ka: The story of a boy and his fictional PC operating system that just won't start up.

■Not YET?

■使おう=Let’s use
■Right, time for some PC action.
■Right, let’s use our PC, shall we.
■Okee dokey, time for some computer action.

■And we turn on the switch: “cha-chin”.

■”FenestralOpening QG. Loading”, she says.
■”FenestralOpening QG. Starting up.”, she says.
■”Windows QG. Starting up”, she says.
■”Windows QG Starting up”, huh.

■Windows QG. Still starting up.

■Getting annoyed.
■Getting angry.

■Windows QG is STILL starting up. Getting angry AND getting old.

■Got angry, grew old and died. And Windows QG is STILL starting up.

■The end
