Quakecon 2005 - Day 3

Filed under
Gaming

I decided to give today's story a little twist from the usual. I'm going to go through a quick overview of my third day here at QuakeCon 2005. From wake to present, I'll tell you what it is like to be here, on-site, at the United State's largest LAN party.

Well, after a late night, or should I say early morning, of gaming I was in no shape to be getting up at the early time of 9:00am, but that is when the alarm was set for and I couldn't fight the urge to get back into the BYOC.

5 Reasons Not To "Not Use Linux"

2000+ people have already watched Tim's video and that is potentially 2000 people that might not use Linux based on invalid arguments. Hopefully a few more people will read this article and therefore redress the balance somewhat. Before I go I wanted to mention that Tim has produced his own counter argument called "5 Reasons To Use Linux". The points in that video state that Linux is multikernel, is open source, has support for many different hardware devices such as the Raspberry PI, has lots of distros (which kind of counters against point 5 in the reasons not to use Linux) and finally it is free.
