Suggestions box

Linux Hater's Blog - Sat, 29/08/2009 - 6:15pm
I had to start using an Ubuntu box at work again, so I've got some fresh (or refreshed?) hate to unload. Since some of you seem to think I'm doing this to be constructively critical of Linux (you can think whatever the hell you want), I'll write these as if I was dropping notes into a suggestions box:
Please add a --shit-that-fucking-works flag to apt-cache search

No, it's not dead

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 28/08/2009 - 11:56pm
It's just that all the new posts you want are actually in git.
Just too lazy to make a stable release.

The fail train that is Munich

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 26/06/2009 - 6:50pm
Wow, nice link in the comments.
An entire blog dedicated to the failure that is the Munich Linux transition.
Hopefully the rest of Germany and Europe can learn from Munich's mistakes.

To all you mono haters

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 12/06/2009 - 7:13pm
Take that.
But seriuosly. Why don't we all just wait another 20 years until everyone forgets that C# came from Microsoft. Then can we use it? I'm sure by then, the real OS'es of the world will have moved onto something even more productive, and freetards will continue to re-discover everything all over again.

I feel like I've given this Lunduke fellow too much credit.
A challenge? really?

Poser Hater

What the fuck. This is the quality of presentations at LinuxFest NW?

First of all, you just took my posts and made them and to slides. Do you see anything that says G-P-fucking-L on this page? I didn’t think so.

Secondly, your talk is just straight up dumb. You have a bunch of the same, lame, and obvious ideas as everyone else. Donations for software that doesn’t exist yet? Telling freetards what to do? Uh huh. Keep trying.

A tribute

Linux Hater's Blog - Thu, 07/05/2009 - 2:48pm

It’s the end of an era, really.

As those of you who have nothing better to do than follow Linux news might have heard, Debian is switching to eglibc.

What’s eglibc you say? since nobody will say it in public, I will. It’s just glibc, sans jackass. The project says they’re trying to “maintain an open development environment encouraging broad, cooperative developer participation”, but those of you who have been around know exactly what this means.

F. U. D.

Wile E Reality catches up to FreeRunner

Linux Hater's Blog - Mon, 06/04/2009 - 8:38pm

Sweetness. Looks like the FreeRunner is finally dead.

I’d just like to take a moment, and lament about all the top notch features we could have had with a truly open source phone like the FreeRunner.

Das Boot

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 20/03/2009 - 5:02pm
Here's something silly. It seems like y'all are concentrating on boot times these days. Boot in 20 seconds! no, 15 seconds! no 10 seconds! But first, you need to answer me this question:
Why the fuck do I care?
Seriously, when's the last time I cold-booted my desktop? Uhh, a month ago? My laptop? ummm, three weeks ago? Oh, but I really wish I saved 10 seconds back then. I could have gotten a couple extra jerks in this month.

Driving me insane

Linux Hater's Blog - Sat, 28/02/2009 - 8:07pm

You know what I see a lot lately? Some luser posting some comment somewhere saying something like:

Look how far Linux has come.. it used to be that we had no drivers and you had to really choose your hardware. Nowadays, most of the drivers are there out of the box. This is better than windows!

Another fantastic example of lusers in la-la land.

Just let it die, please

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 20/02/2009 - 11:16pm

Don’t panic everyone! Apparently openSUSE is not dead yet.

Platform of the Web

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 13/02/2009 - 7:50pm

Sorry. Been busy. Not too much time to write right now, but thought I’d mention this if you haven’t seen it. Firefox on Wine outperforms native Firefox on Linux. That’s just awesome guys. What was that about having a lightweight platform that runs better on less resources?

Dear Abbie

Linux Hater's Blog - Thu, 05/02/2009 - 10:12pm

If you hang out in the freetard swamp like I sometimes do, you might have heard the name Abbie Schubert. She’s an unfortunate student who drew the wrath of thousands of freetards when she blamed Ubuntu for causing her to drop out of school.

Let’s take a step back and examine this situation.

First off, Dell, YOU HAVE A FREETARD IN YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT. You just might want to do something about that. I suggest implementing an improved resume review process to make sure you weed them out.

A River of Fail

Linux Hater's Blog - Sun, 01/02/2009 - 2:02am

A lot of you KDEtards seemed to have pissed your pants when Linus recently said that he switched to Gnome.  And then a bunch of other people showed up and tried to say what this says about KDE, or what it means for Gnome, and blah blah blah.

In actuality, this whole situation is just a culmination of one FAIL after another.

Wobbly Compiz

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 30/01/2009 - 6:23am

Ah Compiz, the darling of the freetard community. How many users were led to carnal bliss by your wobbling windows? How many were not heard from for several weeks as they navigated the wild expanse known as the CompizConfig Settings Manager?

Oh what is that you say LWN, diligent summarizer of freetardery? You say compiz is dying? And in true open source fashion?

For fuck’s sake

Linux Hater's Blog - Thu, 29/01/2009 - 2:33am

Did y’all not learn anything? Was all that ranting and flaming for naught?

Looks like I managed to ruffle a few feathers, but it looks like bringing about real change is going to take a bit more effort.

I had to go because, well, I didn’t have time for this shit. But now I have a little, so I’m back like drobbins. I can’t spend as much time as I used to, but hopefully enough to make Obama happy that I responded to his call to action.


Linux Hater's Blog - Sat, 25/10/2008 - 10:41pm
It was fun while it lasted folks. I'm closing up shop. Moving on.
It turns out, the more hate I dished out, the less I had to hate on. Lusers keep making the same damn mistakes. These days, I wonder if they're not producing yet another 10-reasons-why-Linux-is-better article just to rope me along.
Let's just say, eventually, one moves beyond anger. Like the five phases of grief, or something. Eventually you get to acceptance. Accepting that lusers are going to continue in their freetarded ways whatever you do, however much you try to embarass them in a public forum.

Rants and Laughs 6

Linux Hater's Blog - Sat, 11/10/2008 - 6:26am

Pulse my audio

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 03/10/2008 - 7:03am
I was saving this one until this article became free on It's awesomeness is truly unparalleled.
Let attempt to summarize.
A) PulseAudio needs to work with existing applications, so it implements an ALSA emulation layer, except, it's not complete. Only 70% of ALSA applications work. So it's like, totally ready.


Linux Hater's Blog - Mon, 29/09/2008 - 9:34pm
And then there was another.
I was going to wait for the next Rants and Laughs, but this one is too good. Jonathan Blow, a developer of the Braid game, starts out by asking for some solutions to problems he's running into doing a Linux port of the game.
The freetard brigade arrives, and hilarity ensues, causing Jonathan to give up, and then finish up wiht a comment worthy of an article here.
And since this is a mini-post, I'll leave you with a quick thought:

Rants and Laughs 5

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 26/09/2008 - 12:43am
Mo' fo' dat ass.

Free as long as you give back

Linux Hater's Blog - Thu, 18/09/2008 - 6:06am
So like, this FOSS shit is supposed to be free right? Like I can take the code and go make a bajillion dollars with it, or make some pretty awesome product with it as long as I release all the source code when I'm asked to, right?
That's what the fucking license says right?
Well, apparently there's some stuff that they might have forgotten to stipulate.
Enter the infamouse GregKH. mdz of Ubuntu sums up his keynote speech at the Linux Plumbers Conference quite nicely.

Wine, with a side of Chrome

Linux Hater's Blog - Mon, 15/09/2008 - 11:42pm
I know I've already hated on the wine project before, but what the hell, it's fun!
I came across this really wonderful story today, about how CodeWeavers has a wine-based package to run Chrome on Linux.

It's all about determination

Linux Hater's Blog - Sun, 14/09/2008 - 2:14am
A wonderful post on "Linux Weekly" reminded me of another lame luser talking point.I think one of the main reason most of the people try Linux and go back to Windows is that they aren't determined to make the switch, and they can't conceive that there are other ways of doing things than the Windows methods. If something is done differently on Linux, they quickly jump to a conclusion that goes like 'This is not right, on Windows it's done the other way around.What the fuck?
