Isn't that the script of a Dilbert strip?

Maybe, for shirt purposes, just distill that down to its essence:

"Here's a nickel, kid.  Get yourself a better computer."

It could also be modified a bit:

"Here's a nickel, kid.  Blank CDs are cheap.  Get yourself a better
operating system."

. . . maybe with a Windows logo crossed out, or with a FreeBSD logo, or
something like that.

Of course, one of my favorite one-liners is one I made up:

"Power corrupts.  The command line corrupts absolutely."

. . . or, altneratively:

"Power corrupts.  Unix corrupts absolutely."
