Here's one big, fat, TOLD YOU SO.

An old gem...

... which apparently I missed completely:

Several of you asked for a comment thread reset. Here you go.

More evidence of cluelessness. In a weird late night rage, against my better judgement, I found myself reading this article over at Phoronix, about how Ubuntu is thinking about an SDK.

It appears as if good ol' Mr. Shuttleworth has finally seen the light.

Your free software website, for dummies

There is a certain art to buidling a website for your open source project.Before you create your own, make sure you know and follow the rules. You’ll thank me later.

It’s simple, really. It’s all about the first impression.

In particular, your site’s first page must communicate the following points:

DBus! It's Evil!

So, please support choice and freedom by implementing programs the right way instead of the Linux/Gnome/DBus way.
Oh boy.

here we go again

Just found out about u1db.
The Ubuntu One team have started work on u1db, a project codename for an easy-to-use database API layer which can work on any platform (Ubuntu, web servers, Windows, smartphone platforms) with the existing native databases (SQLite, MySQL, API layers, everything)

In true open source fashion, the community debates the most important issue of the day

I've revived my twitter account.

Sounds like fun

it buuuuuuurns

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 11/02/2011 - 9:42pm
Bwahahahahaahah Nokia.

What a shit show in the making. It keeps getting better. And then of course there's this article. Intel, if you have to say you're not blinking, then you're blinking.

Quoth Intel:

Our strategy has always been to provide choice when it comes to operating systems, a strategy that includes Windows, Android, and MeeGo. This is not changing.

Moar flames

Jeez, linux can only handle 5000 comments? What's up with that? MySQL FTW!

I just realized. Lusers are the vuvuzelas of the software world.

OMG OMG OMG. In addition to totally fucked window controls, we now have a font!

I'm so excited about this thing because it's going to fix so many problems. It's going to make my 30 inch monitor work, and give me awesome 3d graphics, and all the game companies will port to linux to take advantage of this font, and my wireless problems will go away. And it will make Intel open source their gpu, and Microsoft will roll over and die.

I was just taking a look at S-man's announcement for Ubuntu Unity and Light versions. Most of it is blah, except for this tidbit:

A year later

Linux Hater's Blog - Wed, 28/04/2010 - 3:06am
Woah, Lundude is at it again.

Don't worry, it's mostly the same stuff. Linux Desktop sucks. It still sucks. Even a year later. When it's sucked for the last N years, why do you think N+1 will make it so much better? But I'm sooooo sure that there's just a business plan hiding under there somewhere, and I'm the only person to think this hard about it..

A tale of ogg

Linux Hater's Blog - Wed, 03/03/2010 - 10:58pm
Oh Ogg. The format that trapped many a user's music files on lowly Linux desktops. I know I've got some oggs somewhere that I can't listen to any more in itunes. Or any device that I care about, for that matter. And I'm too anal to re-encode them into the only format that matters: mp3.

Then today I saw this nice little tear down of Ogg. I'm not going to write much here since this article has a beauty of it's own. But I will quote a bit:

They took our codes!

Linux Hater's Blog - Wed, 03/02/2010 - 9:34pm
Huh. GregKH is complaining. Again. Big suprise.

Short story: Google uses Linux to create Android. Google makes some kernel modifications, in their own tree. Google has no time to deal with kernel community to re-architect their stuff so that it can go mainstream. GregKH whines like a baby.

Dude, get a clue. Seriously.

Well, it looks like there's at least one business model out there that kinda works for companies shipping open source software: be some search engine's bitch.

Mozilla is Google's bitch. And now Ubuntu is Yahoo's bitch. Maybe Novell will be Bing's bitch?

Bad karma

Lets see, it's been almost 18 months since I originally posted Evolution of an Ubuntu user, but looks like they still haven't got their fucking act together.

Target: Lusers

Just came across this wonderful email from the Fedora Advisory Board. In it, they try to describe who they're creating the Fedora distribution for. Here are their four criteria:
  1. is voluntarily switching to Linux
  2. is familiar with computers, but is not necessarily a hacker or developer
  3. is likely to collaborate in some fashion when something's wrong with Fedora
  4. wants to use Fedora for general productivity, either using desktop applications or a Web browser
This seems like a reasonable thing to do.

Here's an idea

Linux Hater's Blog - Tue, 22/09/2009 - 12:43am
If you're a freetard, but you need to run Windows at work or something, I've got an idea for a utility that will keep you true to the cause.

Well, a mockup for it anyways. I call it kanye-freetard-notify:
