This needed a new FUD, because even though it is a textbook MovingTheGoalposts™, it’s really even sadder than that. Even at Sourceforge, downloads by Linux users have gone down while Mac and Windows downloads have gone up. But, since Mac users have gone up by a greater percentage, we can piggyback on their victory and declare it a “win for the users”. Of course, the average user has never been their concern until now since the average user would know fark-all what to do with the source-code to software, and would rather pay to not have to tinker with ...

It’s hard to know, at this point, how European bureaucracies could possibly render themselves more risible to the rest of the world. First Munich, then the sovereign bond implosion, and now … this. Apparently the French Gendarmerie have calculated that they can save €2 million a year by migrating from Windows to the Ubuntu desktop.

And the number of people they employ? 100,000. That’s, um, my calculus is letting me down here, but let’s just say somewhere between €19 and €21 per employee per year.

I’m going to resist the temptation to mention the provision of ...

Something of a gift from Poggo-San, this one. Even Robert admits that it’s “rather old.”

Of course, that doesn’t stop him using it as back-up for his farcical argument whereby That Other OS is inherently secure.

For once, I can’t actually pick a single bit out of this to demonstrate Looniness. It’s a sort of gestalt, really. Read and enjoy.

Oh, and who are the Computer and Communication Inudstry Association?. No clue, really.

But you’ll be interested to learn that Wikipedia currently lists Microsoft as one of their members.

This lady is right. Downs kids are super likely to get raped because they’re basically retarded. DRLoser has already admitted his fondness for downs kids. Someone needs to get him on a sex offenders map if he isn’t already or pretty soon we’ll be seeing another child molestation scandle, except this time from one of M$'s prized shills.

Not FUD, but pretty interesting, imo. Honestly said, I believe the term SCOphobia isn’t that bad to describe the situation.

Culled from Pog; you have to scroll down past the folk-dancing festival bit.

A bit of light-hearted relief, but also quite serious in a way. Drink from the Kool-Aid Kup (or Gnup, Kool-Aid is all about choice), and you too can be thoroughly misinformed and delusional.

The head honcho of this conference apparently thinks that Microsoft is out to get him, personally, btw.

I really rather like this article, although it is full of hidden assumptions, MovingTheGoalposts™, and irrelevant advice.

The number one Good Thing it points out is “Don’t Be Dumb.” This is not, strictly, functional advice to a Ubuntu user (who, let’s face it, has by definition installed Ubuntu), but it’s better than nothing … nothing being the default security setting for Ubuntu.

The number two Good Thing it points out (which is tangential to security, but excellent in other ways) is:

Back up regularly.

The great thing about Linux is that the Naughty Brigade can only trash your ...

I was stumbling around on StumbleUpon when I found a page with an advertisement for www.linuxez.com, and I wouldn’t have clicked through, but it said that Linux was so easy your grandma could use it…

This site is so awesome.

Apparently OpenOffice is 100% Microsoft Office compatible.

Oh, and you see how it says Linux is so easy even grandma could use it? Scroll down!

Warning! Without the help from our guide, you could be in for a painful learning experience. We have been working with linux on servers and desktop computers since 1995. We know Linux ...

Ok, Pogson hates that “Other OS”, we all know that. He has blaming Microsoft for everything when at the same time he has sucking Google’s balls and forgiving everything it does. Also, he is a Debian user, and almost every post he writes he encourages to use Debian gnuslashlinux.

But this time he is gone mad! Even more crazier than he is! Talking shit about the most popular Debian-based distro just because “Linux Mint seems to stay as far as it can from Free Software”.

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.
