xbill - save your computers from Wingdows [TM] virus
xbill [-l level] [--gui gui] [--sizesize] [-v] [-h]
Ever get the feeling that nothing is going right? You’re a sysadmin,
and someone’s trying to destroy your computers. The little people
running around the screen are trying to infect your computers with
Wingdows [TM], a virus cleverly designed to resemble a popular
operating system. Your objective is to click the mouse on them, ending
their potential threat. If one of the people reaches a computer, it
will attempt to replace your operating system with the virus it
carries. It will then attempt to run off the screen with your vital
software. The game ends when only 1 (or 0) of your computers are being
productive. Additionally, some computers are connected with network
cables. When one computer on a network becomes infected, a spark will
be sent down the cable, and will infect the computer on the other end
when it reaches there.
Clicking the button on one of the little people will cause it to cry
out in pain and melt (id software eat your heart out!), dropping the
stolen os if it is carrying one. If a computer is running Wingdows or
is temporarily off, the os can be dragged back to the computer (or
another computer compatible with that os). To extinguish a spark, drag
the bucket of water from the upper left corner onto it.
The status bar at the bottom tells the following:
Number of Bills on/off the screen
Number of Computers running their OS/off/Wingdows
