Is it me or are the wintroll arguments getting lamer and lamer ? About the
best they seem to be able to do is hurl insults like "linsux" or idiot and
swear a lot. Any foul mouthed 6 year old can do that. Probably better
than they can !
Wintrolls: where are your *technical* arguments about how much better
Windows is than Linux ? They seem to be getting lamer and lamer as time
Remember when you used to tell us how much more advanced the XP UI was
than KDE ? I guess those days are gone.
Remember when you used to think that Microsoft products were so much more
secure than Open Source products. I guess that didn't pan out either.
Remember when Linux was hard to install and didn't support many hardware
variants ? That argument doesn't stand either anymore.
What about... I guess that is gone too.
About the only thing you have to trumpet is that the majority of users
still use Windows, but that is going to change. Does the phrase
"exponential growth" mean anything to you ?
The best part about it for the Linux people is that Linux is really just
getting going. KDE 3.1 was just released. Gnome 2.2 is due out any day
now. Redhat 8.1 is in beta test as is Mandrake 9.1. Kernel 2.6 is going
to kick SMP ass. Open office has an update out. Things are rolling in
Linux land ! IBM will spend its billion on Linux development as will HP.
Dell will probably spend a bit too. Linux developers everywhere are
getting pretty pumped and most of the Linux apps are getting some serious
runtime under their belt. Private developers will add their bit to the
open source efforts and the movement will just keep on rolling. Ah, but
the taste of success is sweet.
Things in Linux land are only going to get better and better as time goes
on, including rubbing the noses of the stupid wintrolls in our success. I
can't wait until the investment community starts to figure out that
Microsoft might not be as profitable in the future as they have been with
their Windows monopoly. Times change. Shit happens. Linux rules. Get
used to it !
Now if only we could shut mr Paddy Mc*head up for a while. Ready to get
your Windows ass kicked some more, mr. Paddy ? Do you have anything to
say other than swear and call people names ?
