(Originally written for the Mach OS at CMU; now, applicable to, well, pick
your favorite operating system...)

Oh great Mach, you are so very Huge.
Your mighty kernel, larger than life,
crushes mine enemies,
Yea while a host of #ifdefs confounds my foes.
Your source tree twists and contorts
through a thousand links;
And where one file is deleted,
Ten shall sprout to take its place.
Gosh, I'm just really impressed down here, I can tell you.
