This just keeps getting worse. Please tell me how anyone could think this is a good idea:

Tech Tips with Gnull and Voyd
http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/9452

“Howdy. My husband is Chester Gnull and I’m Laverta Voyd, and I’m the lady to light a way for all you sweethearts out there who do fancy stuff with Linux. Me and my husband’s gonna be bringing you tech tips just about every month now….I don’t know nothing about Linux. Chester, he’s the smart one…”

How many moronic stereotypes can you count in this?

re: Linux Journal

What do you expect, they also keep that uber-annoying hack writer Chef Francais (Marcel Gagme) on board as well.

Save your money and just subscribe to Linux Magazine (more tech, less religion).

Probably written by a staff writer who thought he was being cute

The tip on how to unpack, modify, and repack Ubuntu's initrd (a gzipped cpio archive -- using cpio is ugly) is a keeper. But the shtick used to introduce the column does have misogynistic undertones, now that you mention it.

As for Monsieur Gagné, his books are good aids for those moving to Linux from another OS (it helps if you like Mandriva). Linux Journal keeps him on board because his column, love it or hate it, is very popular.

Witcher 2 Bug Prompts Linux Creator To Recommend Devs Play Steam Games

It’s common for NVIDIA and AMD to tweak their drivers to optimise specific titles, but patches to operating systems just for games? Usually developers work around platform quirks, but that’s not good enough for Linus Torvalds, the man behind Linux. When crashes in The Witcher 2 were caused by Linux’s core software, Torvalds not only requested the bug be fixed, but that Steam games should be used in the future as “good tests of odd behaviour”.
