From the Krazy Kat Lady.

That’s right, Katherine, everybody out there wants to start using an OS as a “beginner.” And of course, we all need friends. Not sure that da Communiteh really qualifies as such, unless you’re a compulsive masochist.

Version 1.0.0, huh? Let’s see what it has to offer over, say, version 0.0.1 or version 12.10 … these nominalisms are seriously important to Linux distros. Let’s see:

Five years of support

Purely because it’s a fork of Precise Pangolin. Is Ubuntu going to guarantee this for you? I think ...

It is a fact self-evident to Loons that you only have to slap the word “Linux” on something and it will instantly become the cynosure of all tech-eyes.

From a sane point of view, however, Meego was doomed from the start.

  • It was butt-ugly.
  • It had no killer apps and no chance of any.
  • It was clearly chosen on the basis that the Million Eyes would take over 90% of development costs.
  • Failing that, the backup plan was to make it an industry standard (thus the Intel connection).
  • Nokia don’t do operating systems. Operating systems are non-trivial.
  • Nokia did ...

Read it and weep winbreds, read it and weep. M$ is crumbling and winders h8 will only make it crumble faster. The triumph of GNU/Linux is finally here.

Man oh man:

Judging by his words, Shuttleworth is sick of Ubuntu features being torn apart by critics before they’re ready. “We’ve … figured out that critics will be critics whether you discuss an idea with them in advance or not. Working on something in a way that lets you refine it till it feels ready to go has advantages: you can take time to craft something, you can be judged when you’re ready, you get a lot more punch when you tell your story, and you get your name in lights.”‘

I think we’re looking at ...

When the winbred of the year rages against the latest offering from M$ you know you have a problem. Unfortunately, his consistent raging against h8 has forced us to revoke his winbred of the year status. The new winbred of the year is officially DRLoser, because the illegal monopoly pays him to do stuff.
Also whoever keeps posting “PAID M$ $HILL” to every jerkface post needs to stop. Your “parody” of me got old last year.

So there we have it. Asus is going to offer Netbooks with Linux yet again.

Remember all those who said GNU/Linux was dead on the netbook and the netbook itself was dead? They were premature.

Geez, I remember everyone switching (for a number of reasons) to tablets, specially the one from that company that you love, hate or love to hate. We seen lots of nonsense when it comes to accessories, nonetheless, we already have this

Why are they releasing it again, I really don’t know, but at least they are doing right this time, as they are ...

What the heck, you need a catchy little title every now and again.

In a note posted to AnonPaste.me, Anonymous said “WikiLeaks has chosen to dishonor and insult Anonymous and all information activists” by requiring payment to view documents it previously made available for free.

Apparently you can turn this stuff off by disabling Javascript … which is in and of itself a face-palm … but, OK, yeah, “dishonor and insult” is not a good thing.

Heck, if you’re a fourteen year old girl going to school in the Swat valley, you can get shot in the head for “dishonor ...

Pwned by a TM by Queef, Olderman? Not good enough. Here you get pwned by the Hamster, in a FUD all of your own…

It’s not really the most exciting visual for a thumbnail, I admit, but let the Hamster explain it, channeling Yoda more thoroughly than usual:

You asked exists where Android Libreoffice. Exactly what alpha do you want. Android x86 or Android arm. They are both there. Choose you poison.

Poison? An inept metaphor, I think. But it’s true: Libre Office on Android has achieved Alpha status.

HahaHA! Do you now see the Power of the ...
