What a refreshing change. Not five reasons: only three.

In fact, the top three reasons to be a Linux professional, according to survey respondents were:

1. Interesting projects

2. Working on the most cutting-edge technology challenges

3. More job opportunities.

So, not money then! Hoorah for Freedom, possibly augmented by BitCoins!

But wait, there’s more goodies in store for the Professional Loon!

Thirty-eight percent of the 1,100 hiring managers surveyed for the Linux Jobs Report said they accommodate flexible work schedules or telecommuting …

And where I work, 100% of the hiring managers accommodate flexible work schedules and telecommuting ...

It’s not much, but better than the “flash it on your Nexus” they had 'till now.

Anyway, this is not the point. The point is that Ubuntu will be sold pre-installed on tightly integrated devices (phones). I 've been expecting this moment since forever. Aka the moment the loons will have to stand by their product, and when they fail to do so, there will be consequences, aka complaints that cannot be silenced by downvoting people.

Here are the possible outcomes:

1. Shuttleworth ensures Mir, PulseAudio and the rest of the stack don’t break proprietary drivers, so upgrades ...

Been a while since I forced myself to translate reports on LiMux from the German, but I think this one is worth it. Apologies to our native Deutsch-Sprechern here, but I’ve done my best.

To set the table, this is an article from Heise Online, which is a widely-read and generally respected German tech site. The context is this:

The Lord Mayor of Munich, Christian Ude (SPD) and Sabine Nallinger, the Greens’ candidate in the upcoming municipal election in Munich, are arguing about the use of Linux in the Munich council offices.

Obviously, this is the worst ever thing that could possibly happen to any user of a PC, anywhere. It is endless grief incarnate.

It’s also the catchy title of some random article, in this case on the “Tom’s Guide” site, that wasn’t even penned by “Tom” but was in fact a rant by “Marshall Honorof,” and don’t waste your time clicking on the link. Let’s just call Marshall an incompetent anonymous idiot with nothing better to do.

And it was published on August 13th, 2013, which suggests that nitwits like Jerkface are scraping the bottom ...

M$ has appointed Satya Nadella as Satan’s new angel of death. He will supervise an M$ in retreat preparing to collapse. Also, Billybob “Gates of Hell” Gates was fired from his post as retired Angel of Death so he can go do fake charity work.

Obviously. Because the primary characteristic of the dirty freetard is being cheap.

This is just YearOfTheLinuxDesktop™ phrased differently. When will the freetard menace learn that nobody wants their broken, useless, hobbyist OS? Obviously never. Because they’ve been repeating this same tired bullshit for decades.
