Real time hate

Linux Hater's Blog - Thu, 11/09/2008 - 7:16pm
Just wanted to mention, I've started a twitter feed: http://twitter.com/hatinglinux .
I've always thought twitter was kind of lame, but we'll see how it goes. 

Word to your mother

Linux Hater's Blog - Wed, 10/09/2008 - 6:58am
reddit is fucking awesome. It really is. It's got this whole Linux section where freetards automatically mod up the stupidest stories. I don't even have to go looking for material any more. It's just there.

Rants and Laughs 4

Got a whole bunch of 'em queued up for you guys tonight.

My perl caught a bug

Linux Hater's Blog - Sun, 31/08/2008 - 6:38am
There were a lot of things that I could have written about this week. Like, for example, Red Hat getting p0wned. Or how freetards in Quebec want their goverment to be even more inefficient. (Does this mean now they have to come to the US to buy their copy of Windows, along with their MRI's?)

National Convention of Anarchy

Linux Hater's Blog - Tue, 26/08/2008 - 6:34am
What else happens every four years other than the olympics? Why, the DNC!

OMGWTF! I can't view the videos using Linux! EPIC FAIL!

Slashtards. Seriously, how do you keep doing it? How do you stay so inspired? I find myself struggling to keep up.

Rants and Laughs 3

Linux Hater's Blog - Mon, 25/08/2008 - 9:44pm
Yay, Olympics over! Burning man begins!

  • Another freetard comes around.
    Now, I know that I should have got something more compatible with the community that I’m a member of. Maybe one of those OpenMoko powered Neo FreeRunner devices or even an Ubuntu Mobile powered prototype device.

    But an iPhone it was. Why?

Certified to suck

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 22/08/2008 - 10:40pm
Hey guys. Turns out, I had the awesome privilege to look in to Linux certification this past week. You know, like how when Novell says SUSE runs well on some laptops, then, well, it should? Well, turns out they have a funny definition of "well".

Flash me a clue

Linux Hater's Blog - Mon, 18/08/2008 - 7:35am
Idiotry at Slashdot continues.

No matter how stably, smoothly, efficiently, and correctly Linux runs on a machine, the public will continue to view it as second-rate if Flash keeps crashing. This is the worst example of being tied down and bound by a crappy 3rd-party product over which no Linux distribution has any control.

This is so typical. Without having any evidence whatsoever, lets blame the closed-sourceness of Flash for all of desktop Linux's problems.

Olympics are still going on, and the day job is a tad busy these days (don't worry! it'll calm down soon enough). Maybe I should give it up and move back into my mom's basement and work on free software.

Anyways, looks like you guys are still finding the good stuff out there, so here's another bunch of links:

Bundle me this

Linux Hater's Blog - Tue, 12/08/2008 - 5:47pm
Hey y'all. Sorry about the whole comment thing. I've decided (like many of you also have) that disqus sucks (threading seemed like a good idea, until it indented so much that you couldn't even see the messages), so let's go back to the old Blogger comments. Besides, having comments stored in a separate site is still a little weird in the web-2.0-epic-fail kinda way.

Challenged

Linux Hater's Blog - Thu, 07/08/2008 - 7:01am
Yay. A challenge. But before I start, let me point out a few mistakes you've already made:
  1. You commented on my blog.
  2. You replied to another commenter. (Hell, even I know not to do that)
  3. You challenged me.

You know, I don't even know if I want to spend so much time on this. It looks like commenters on your blog already called you on your bullshit. There's not really much for me to add. But I'll try anyways.

Rants and Laughs

Linux Hater's Blog - Tue, 05/08/2008 - 6:33pm
Argh. I'm getting way behind on these things, so I'm combining the Rants and Laughs posts into one series. I can feel that we're getting closer and closer to becoming the anti-slashdot. Perhaps ~/. is an appropriate way to refer to this site.

First the rants:

One bug report to rule them all

Linux Hater's Blog - Mon, 04/08/2008 - 9:42pm
Whatup y'all. I hope I haven't worn out all those refresh buttons on your browsers. Just because I don't post for a few days, y'all want to declare the death of this blog? You wish.

Anyways, today I'm talkin' about one of the community's crown jewels: bug trackers. We've heard it all before. Open bug tracking increases collaboration, transparency, and saves lives of poor, hungry children, etc.

But guess what? take a look at the bug trackers out there. They're mostly full of hogwash. Most of the bug reports go something like this...

Foxnews^H^H^H^Hconn conspiracy

Linux Hater's Blog - Mon, 28/07/2008 - 4:41am
What's up ass-captains? I've been very fortunate to be able to watch you guys shit your panties about this Foxconn thing, only to have the whole thing disputed. Leave it to the luser mob to create a whole movement out of some stupid bug.

Lusers make me laugh ver. 3

Linux Hater's Blog - Sat, 26/07/2008 - 12:12am
More laughs.


  • One Week with an OpenMoko Freerunner
    The system it comes with, even after upgrading, is still very rough. It mostly works for doing phone calls and SMSs
    Damn. That's hot shit. SMSs.
    But, as this is free software, there is hope that this will be fixed eventually.

My browser needs 16 exabytes

Linux Hater's Blog - Wed, 23/07/2008 - 10:27pm
I just remembered something that makes me want to bust out a Linux Hater Smash everytime I think about it.

Rants heard 'round the Community ver. 10

Linux Hater's Blog - Wed, 23/07/2008 - 5:27am
Keep the links coming guys. Maybe we can make an anti-Slashdot out of this site.

  • A couple rants on Alsa vs OSS. Fuck. There's a fucking awesome diagram that someone sent me of dependencies between sound libraries on Linux but now I can't find it.
  • And another one on PulseAudio.

Of silos and samba

Linux Hater's Blog - Mon, 21/07/2008 - 5:11am
Somewhat administrative: Screw you Slashdot. You linked Mr. Allison's article, but not me directly. Classy. Maybe you don't want to be associated with me? Whatever, that's cool, I don't like you guys either. You guys are like the Al Jazeera of tech journalism. I don't really read you because I want to, it's just a good place to find material.

Lusers make me laugh ver. 2

Linux Hater's Blog - Fri, 18/07/2008 - 11:07pm
Kind of a busy Friday for me. Anyhow, here's some more entertaining stuff.

The fallacy of choice

Linux Hater's Blog - Thu, 17/07/2008 - 6:34am
I'm sure by now I don't really have to describe in detail this phenomenon: Whenever you criticize a luser about his choice of OS, he'll inevitably come back with, "at least it gives me choices." Choice in window manager, choice in terminal application, choice in file manager, choice in desktop environment, choice in kernel version, you name it.

This "choice", as loudly as it is trumpeted, is a key reason that Linux has not made it on the desktop. Let me attempt to show you why.

Lusers make me laugh ver. 1

Linux Hater's Blog - Wed, 16/07/2008 - 9:13pm
Ok, here's a new column for you guys. Y'all have been getting better at sending me links to posts and articles of freetards and lusers making asses of themselves. So I'll collect them and list them, and we can all have a laugh.

Don't feed the trolls!

Linux Hater's Blog - Wed, 16/07/2008 - 1:11am
Looks like this Manu guy took the bait.

Let's just see what he has to say, shall we? (sorry, many blockquotes to follow)

Why Linux is NOT Better.com

Linux Hater's Blog - Tue, 15/07/2008 - 7:25am
Nice! I just found this site off of reddit: Why Linux is Better.com. Fortunately for me, it reads like a talking point manual for your local Linux zealot. I thought we might have a bit of fun with this one.

Forget about viruses. I think we went over that already.
