I've probably disagreed more than agreed with him. Nevertheless he has been more "genuine" and true in his writing than most others. To disagree with him forced you to think.
I hope many take their time to read his farewell as it points out some of the human societies weirdness. Some food for thought.
I too disagreed with his views on many occassions as well, and just as KimTjik pointed out, disagreeing with him forced you to think. I read his farewell speech and I have to agree with some of his points on where society is going. He will be missed.
You only become disenchanted with blogging when you are not getting what you expect from a blog. I have a small blog online as well, there are some articles that get hardly any interest at all.
If I was overly concerned about how many people were regular readers, I too might become disenchanted and quit. That's not why I blog though. I blog to share an idea, perhaps even to remind me of what I was doing and thinking at a certain point in time. I blog to share some experience that I think/hope someone else might find useful in their own use of Linux/FOSS.
I like to see comments too, even those that disagree with me or produce evidence contrary to what I posted. You never know when you might learn something new or discover you were going about things one way and maybe should have done it another way.
If all you're looking for is popularity though, blogging isn't the activity to ensure that. That's what fanboy forums and sites are for, to be a geek among geeks.
Going forward, Tux Machines does not have ads. Instead it relies on readers' support and is run as a public service.
