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.

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.

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 ...
