It's funny, I didn't even think it was a /question/ that Charlie meant for Parson to be trapped in the inferno condition. They as much as said it here
I've read your reference strip. I don't see a single reference to fire, much less an inferno. Trapped? Yes. Inferno? Not mentioned.

He was in a production queue which no longer exists. Ergo, he no longer exists.

You can undo moving something to the recycle bin, but you can't undo emptying the recycle bin.
I'll conditionally give you ease-of-use, although several Linux distros have made major strides in that arena and I'd argue that the only ease-of-use Windows has remaining is a large user base which is already familiar with how to operate it on an end-user basis. I personally find the Linux/Unix file system far easier to comprehend than the Windows file system. Between the multiple places config files are stored plus the registry, Windows is a nightmare. But affordability? You kid, right? Linux is free
(and yes, I am aware that there are some distros which do have a price, but I'm not aware of one which costs more than Windows). Compare free to the cost of Windows before you give Windows any credence for affordability, please.

It isn't. And do not speak of it again.
