Have you ever wondered what the joke answer to every Linux-related question (“rm -rf /”) actually does? You know it deletes everything, but have you ever seen it? Well, for your viewing pleasure, I have trashed my Ubuntu system. It wasn’t really what I expected it to be, nothing blew up. I won’t spoil it for you though, I’ll let you see for yourself. If the video runs a bit fast it’s because I’ve skipped the redundant frames (there was a lot of doing nothing, about 2 minutes of the terminal deleting with no output).

You can download the video (it’s encoded in Xvid) by clicking here.

P.S. When I restarted the computer Grub gave me an error and did not go any further (obviously).
