I wish we could say something on his last post, but only real men (aka basement dwellers) can post. Guessing if he will quit TMR forever as well.

I’ll always remember him for his abuse of Godwin’s Law (He would call you Nazi in 3 posts or less).

... unless you are Microsoft. Or if they don’t like what your code implements. Or if they think your code smells bad.

So I guess the following promises:

“The very good side effects of having your driver in the main kernel tree are:

  • The quality of the driver will rise as the maintenance costs (to the original developer) will decrease.
  • Other developers will add features to your driver.
  • Other people will find and fix bugs in your driver.
  • Other people will find tuning opportunities in your driver.
  • Other people will update the driver for you when external interface changes require ...

This is pretty much both a FUD and TM. Basically to some winbreds, when Linux is successful somewhere, it is no longer Linux. This allows Winbreds to pretend Linux is failure when it really is pretty much dominating the market.

For instance, Android:

“The open source community, Forrester asserts, will simply be unable to keep up with the likes of … Google’s Android™.”

They should have added this, it would have made as much sense:

“Microsoft, Forrester asserts, will be unable to keep up with likes of … Windows.”

Notice how this is part of the official kernel documentation that is being linked.

In 1996, Linux was the first operating system in the world to add support for the artificial language Klingon, created by Marc Okrand for the “Star Trek” television series. This encoding was later adopted by the ConScript Unicode Registry and proposed (but ultimately rejected) for inclusion in Unicode Plane 1. Thus, it remains as a Linux/CSUR private assignment in the Linux Zone.

Now you might have read this FUD about file name encodings, you’ll find it to be ridiculous since Linux supports Klingon.

Of course, the way to fix *nix filenames in the first place is, well, not to use a ham-fisted definition of filenames in the first place.

But that would be too difficult. Also, it abrogates Freedom. In this specific case, it abrogates the freedom to use spaces in filenames, which (for some ungodly reason, possibly to do with the real world) users want.

Bit of a bugger when your entire shell pipeline depends upon a stream-o-bytes, innit?

“It’d be easier and cleaner to write fully-correct shell scripts if filenames couldn’t include any kind of whitespace. There’s no ...

Chock-full of the sort of graphs that make Loons salivate.

And totally bogus.

Have fun analysing!

My personal favourite is “Removal of Unused Methods,” which is always the task that gets priority on my projects, but you might well find something even more hilarious.

Sorry, couldn’t came with a better title.

Well, let’s do this. Windows 8 is coming and once again we have to bear with the whining of freetards saying “But Ma~, Linux had it first”. Here is the list of the offending features.

I really like those “Microsoft twist” bits. This is were the real innovation is.

  • File copy dialogue: Never worked for me on linux anyway. Maybe they will on Win8 and maybe I’ll find them useful.
  • ISO mounting: Because tools to mount ISO files on Windows have never existed
  • Windows on the go: Mix it with ...

New approach to desktop. Throw everything away (again) and re-learn how to use our desktop (again)

Before I comment, let me just say that I am entirely in favour of a plethora of high-paying Linux jobs. Not only would it increase my opportunities of employment immediately (I’m in the sweet-spot of 3-5 years experience with Linux, apparently), but it would also open up whole new avenues of untold riches. For instance, Linux testing? That’s a vanishingly small pool of expertise. I’ve done it!

And now to the dull stuff: the nitty-gritty.

This … thing … is full of graphs and self-congratulation. It is full of sets of percentages that tend to add up to 200 ...

Satan’s top crusader general has risen from his diet of hookers and blow to fire the lamest insults at GNU/Linux. He is trying to galvanize his followers into renewing the war against freedom. Since many more freedom crusaders are aware of him however he should be squashed in short order.
