Adobe has decided not to port flash to mobile devices, the segment of the PC market that is expanding the quickest. Of course that means we’ll be seeing HTML5 video on our mobile phones soon and as the desktop fades into irrelevancy flash will be nothing but a memory. Suck it winbreds.

Just for a change, some genuine FUD. And, just for a change, yer actual genuine Microsoft FUD. Referenced from ZDNet via Fragmentation FTW over at LHB.

Yeah, I’m only including it because it supports one of my TMs (although MrKvonic is clearly being ironic).

And because I want to test out TMR’s support for links to Youtube videos.

And because … well, I’m not a much of a one for marketing videos, and I only got a minute into this one, but you know what it reminds me of?

Munich, that’s what. How’s die Scheiternzug steaming ...

Sorry fanboys. There will never be a year of the Linux desktop. Adrian Kingsley-Hughes tells the kids to move on to other things, however he doesn’t realize in places “Linux” dominates, it’s not the kids running the show. Google doesn’t let the kids argue over what desktop environment the mobile phone runs. TiVo made RMS mad when they made sure he couldn’t mess things up in there. Whereas, just look at the places the kids are in charge. It’s like “Lord of the Flies”. Tell me what happened to Mameo/Meego or whatever it’s ...

Not exactly FUD and a bit old, but rather amusing IMHO.

TL;DR The article dissects how Shuttleworth – nervous, because he is burning cash with no end in sight and faster than you could say G N E W SLASH Linux – effectively shows the middle finger to the so called community.

... because you can fix it yourself and customize it. Forget about those whimpy “user friendly” proprietary OSes, with their consistent UIs and easy to access functions and users having a common reference so they can help each other better, Linux gives you the true power and Choice™!

Exercise #1: Rate the smugess and freetardness of the author.

Exercise #2: Find all the TMs in article.

Exercise #3: Pat yourself on the back if you managed to read the whole thing without turning away or vomiting.

This isn’t FUD. Instead, it’s an excellent response to Richard Stallman’s ludicrously particular speaking conditions.

The author confirms what I’ve been saying all along. That Stallman is an eccentric malcontent with a severe set of social disorders who contributes nothing to open source but his irreverent voice. A voice which, at the best of times, divides people, and at the worst of times, scares and disgusts people. Worse still, he’s so disconnected that his talks are little more than overblown lectures in philosophy that exist only in some imaginary plane with no basis in reality ...

The evil, satanic M$ Corporation has decided to further its monopolistic, proprietary aims by…donating code to Samba. Worst. Monopolists. Ever.

Linux FUDer quick start guide:

1.) Post a rant on how you can’t install Kubuntu on machine A. Blame it on secure boot, Microsoft vendor lock-in etc.
2.) Find out that the machine in question doesn’t even have UEFI and your error was due to a silent failure of the GRUB installer.
3.) Use 2.) to blame it on your GUI.

You decide whom to blame – GUI or Microsoft or even both!

Another of those tricky little things, full of words, that Adam clearly hasn’t read yet. But he wants us to, so I thought I’d oblige the little bugger.

It’s not clear to me, given his table manners etc, why anybody would invite Stallman to give a speech in person. Surely it would be better value all round if you just bung him $2000 plus costs and ask him to send you a video and stay the hell away from normal people. Why, you could even share and reuse and alter the video, in line with the Four ...

It’s a well known fact that Canonical has such vast engineering resources, they manage to produce a new version of Ubuntu every 6 months, without these versions being half-baked or rushed. Obviously something to do with pink unicorns and the power of open source, don’t ask YouWouldntUnderstand™. However, having such vast engineering resources and focusing just on the desktop and the server is clearly a waste, so why not also make a smartphone and tablet version?

Yes that’s right folks, Ubuntu for the smartphone, the tablet, the dekstop and the server. One Ubuntu to ruin… i mean ...
