For a while, just before retiring, I taught programming (*ahem*
computer science) at a local university, up to the kernel-hacking
level.  I had some fun with it.  I would comment that all OS-en had at
least one stand-out feature, a truly strong point.  Just once, a
student asked what the strong point of Windows was.  Little did he
know I'd been fishing for that question all along.  Finally!!  The
answer, of course, without a pause, dead-pan, was "solitaire".  I
could go on at some length about the joys of Spider, for instance, and
you'd never know for sure how my tongue and cheek were aligned.
