About the Operating System Sucks-Rules-O-Meter
This operating system quality and approval metric is based on a
periodic AltaVista search
for each of several operating systems, directly followed by "sucks",
"rules", or "rocks".
We search for all operating system names exactly as shown
above, with the exceptions of Mac OS, Mac OS X,
and VMS. For Mac OS, we add the search results for the
incorrect but common spelling "MacOS". Because Mac OS X is sometimes
abbreviated to simply "OS X", the Mac OS X search is just for "OS
X" -- we have not found other instances of this term on the web,
so we can use it without confusion. For VMS, we add the results for
"OpenVMS". We do not search for any derogatory slang misspellings
of any operating system name.
