[News] Why GNU/Linux Sucks (Satire)

Hash: SHA1

What Linux really lacks

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux does not lack user friendliness any more. Ubuntu. openSUSE. Try them 
| out. 
| Linux does not lack quality software. Openoffice.org. Firefox. Pidgin. 
| Thunderbird. They all run on Linux. 
| Linux does not lack power. It runs on the widest range of hardware.
| Linux does not lack company backing. Novell. Canonical. Red Hat. They are 
| large corporations. 



Apple Faithful: Arrogance Is Not a Virtue, and Why I Will Never Buy a Mac

| Jason: “Yeah but it can it run Lotus 123 or WordStar? Can you go onto
| CompuServe or BBSes with it?”
| Andy: “Who cares? This thing is so cool!”
| Jason: “Enjoy. I’ll stick with my keyboard, character mode graphics and
| PC-XT.”
| Cousin Andy grew up to be a very nice, smart and successful guy and went into
| educational publishing. He got married and had a couple of kids, and is now a
| venture capitalist. But at that time, when I was 15 or 16, I just remember
| him as my know-it-all older first cousin. Andrew, I love you man, but you are
| responsible for creating the master template for my complete distaste for Mac
| Fanboyism and my eventual disassociation from anything Apple. Sorry.


- From OSX to Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| So far I’m not really missing that much - clearly OSX has a certain feel of
| slickness to it but in the last couple of years Ubuntu has become much more
| refined and easier to use. More an more works without intervention - I’d long
| held an opinion that using linux was like owning a vintage beetle — It’s
| great but you have to spend all weekend tinkering with it to keep it on the
| road. For me using windows was like that, as I found more and more time was
| sucked into keeping my PC running. When I switched to OSX I found my
| productivity went up. So far with Linux it’s too early to tell whether I’m as
| productive though I’m fairly confident that I’m finding enough software that
| performs well and is intuitive to use that I should be every bit as “at home”
| on Linux as I was on the mac. Plus with the added bonus that I’ve got a much
| better set of linux tools (rather than bsd) under the hood and not to mention
| that running an open source operating system is a much better prospect long
| term.


Mac OS is better than Ubuntu Linux: A myth

,----[ Quote ]
| The myths
|   * Ubuntu does not have a good UI : This is absolutely rubbish, checkout
|     the new KDE that comes with Ubuntu.
|   * To install software a user has to use a command line on Ubuntu :
|     Another false claim. The Synaptic package manager is brilliant and does
|     not require interaction with the command line. There are some software
|     that do need command line usage. Then again those won’t be ones an
|     average user is going to use.
|   * You have to build software from source code on Ubuntu. This is not
|     something an average user would be able to do : The software that come in
|     source code form are definitely not intended for the average user. The
|     ones that are meant for the average user come in binary formats that are
|     easy to install.
