The Linux community sucks at times.

Filed under
Linux

I was converted to Linux my senior year of high school by a classmate. Enticed by the prospects of free software, complete control over my system, and breaking free of the chains of Microsoft Windows Vista, I threw myself headfirst into the Linux experience.

For me, Linux was a positive experience and continues to be today. My system runs beautifully. Not everyone is suited to use Linux; some people are definitely more suited to Windows or Mac. What some fail to understand, however, is that using an OS like Windows doesn’t necessarily imply ignorance, failure, or stupidity.

Sarcasm and snarkiness has never given the Linux community a good name, and comments such as these do nothing but leave bad impressions on those who are considering a switch. I have never understood why Linux users always act as if they have been blessed by some amazing enlightenment, and that those who do not use Linux are aimless sheep wandering in the dark.

Synonym of Fedora QA – Adam Williamson

A very famous name in Fedora QA “Adam Williamson“, we all know him more as “Community Monkey”. I was already quite impressed the amount of work he has been putting in Fedora QA since quite a long time and I am sure it is not just me. I got a golden opportunity to meet him in person at flock and it was really nice to know about him more as a person. My first meeting with him was a big surprise for me. I was about to start my talk on Fedora QA and with in five minutes after I started giving talk, just a another boy with shorts came running with a big smile on his face in to my talk room and I actually stopped my talk to mention that people are so happy to get registered in the flock. But,he was smiling all the time as I was giving my talk (may be because, there were lot many things I included in my slides created/managed/initiated by Adam). I was quite confused what making this guy so happy. At the end of my talk he was helping me out in giving answers quite confidently. I was wondering who is this guy, then I read his name on his flock badge – I was almost dead with shock because it was none other than “Adam Williamson” Read more
