The Many Breeds of Ubuntards

Filed under
Ubuntu

Like most religions, Ubuntu has different factions among its followers. There are the die hards, the excited newbies, the evangelists, and the old-timers among others. They may vary in degrees of knowledge, experience, willingness to learn, and maturity, but they all have one thing in common: they’re all Ubuntards.

The Die Hard

Bio: The Die Hard is out in force on Ubuntu forums and social media, commenting on blogs and tweeting about the latest upcoming Ubuntu features. The drivel this guy spews is inane and forgettable stuff, characterized by comments that treat Ubuntu as if it is the only distribution in existence. He downloaded Ubuntu 2 years ago after seeing his leet hax0r friend running fluxbox at university.

Blog Title: WTF Ubuntu FTW

Ubuntu Flavor: Ubuntu Alpha pre-release

Experience Level: Moderate

Catch Phrase: “I can’t wait for Karmic, it’s supposed to boot in 10 seconds and the new boot splash is AWESOME!”

Commentary like this is the type of juvenile, over the top zealotry that gives Linux a bad name. To say this guys rants are offensive is a gross understatement. There are many places in the Linux community to have intelligent discourse on one distro versus another. This website should be one of them, not a clearinghouse for scummy trash talk.The internet is a big place - flush this detritus down the toilet and let it find another resting place with the rest of the hate speech.

humor

oh come on man, where's your sense of humor?

Ubuntards

Yeh links like this, helios blog and beranger have no place on this site. BTW why was my previous post deleted? All I said as haha that's mean.

You're putting the Blog of Helios in with those that are offensive? Are you kidding?

You musta forgot to click the Post button after preview. I didn't delete any posts. I didn't even see it.

re-tards

I agree that this is not a worthy post for tuxmachines.
The English taunt "'tard" or "retard" for a mentally retarded person may be funny, as popularized by theregister.co.uk who add "-tard" to the end of anyone they want to make fun of, but when you think about it, it is rather offensive.

I thought it summed up a lot

I thought it summed up a lot of ubuntu users who have been pissing me off for years

Yup. Seems to sum em up.

How Awful

Yes, the article is completely wrong.....

It's UNoobTards - get it right already - geeeeeesh!

Amusing

Whether it's Ubuntards, or vonskippys UNoobTards, I'm familiar with some of the characters described in the blog.

Funny stuff.

Ubuntu Tiresome Troll

The whole "let's make fun of people who use Ubuntu" schtick was amusing for a little while, but it's gotten really old.

In honor of this guy's blog, I will go install Ubuntu on another computer this weekend.

the year of the linux never came

Thanks to people like this, the year of linux never came and never will. When something is making it to the top you pull it down. This is always the down side of being popular, people with "minor-mentality" will go against you (sad story, ubuntu is not an exemption).

Anyway... I agree it is offensive

Atang1. You are still using

Atang1. You are still using WinME?????
You must be the only person I've come across that installed that heap of doodah and kept it.

Ubuntu GNOME Shell in Artful: Day 14

One of the latest thing we wanted to work on as we highlighted on our previous posts is the notification for new emails or download experience on the Shell. We already do ship the KStatusNotifier extension for application indicator, but need a way to signal the user (even if you are not looking at the screen when this happens) for new emails, IM or download/copy progress. Andrea stepped up on this and worked with Dash to Dock upstream to implement the unity API for this. Working with them, as usual, was pleasing and we got the green flag that it’s going to merge to master, with possibly some tweaks, which will make this work available to every Dash to Dock users! It means that after this update, Thunderbird is handily showing the number of unread emails you have in your inbox, thanks to thunderbird-gnome-support that we seeded back with Sébastien. Read more

Download latest Linux-based LibreELEC Krypton -- Kodi addons like Exodus and Covenant will work

The Kodi media center is facing a lot of scrutiny in the media lately. Some people feel that the negative coverage is "fake news." It is important to remember that Kodi is not illegal. With that said, it can be made so with piracy-related addons. Since Kodi is open source, even if the developers removed the ability to install addons, other people could easily fork the code to add it back. Pandora's box cannot be closed. Many people that use Kodi do so with a dedicated Linux-based operating system, such as the excellent LibreELEC. You see, these distros exist only to run the open source media center, meaning there are no resources wasted on unnecessary things. Today, LibreELEC (Krypton) v8.1.2 BETA sees release. You can install it immediately, and don't worry -- your addons like Exodus and Covenant will work fine. Read more

Arduino unveils tiny, battery powered MKR boards for LoRa and 3G

Arduino launched two 67.6 x 25mm boards for wireless IoT nodes based on Atmel’s SAM D21 MCU: The MKR WAN 1300 offers LoRa, and the MKR GSM 1400 provides 3G. At the Maker Faire in New York this weekend, Arduino unveiled two new “MKR” IoT boards with the same 32-bit, Cortex-M0+ based Microchip/Atmel ATSAMD21 MCU used by last December’s MKRZero. Available for pre-order, with shipment in November, both the LoRa enabled, $39 Arduino MKR WAN 1300 and the 2G/3G ready, $69 Arduino MKR GSM 1400 measure 67.6 x 25mm. That’s only slightly larger than the 65 x 25mm MKRZero and earlier, WiFi-enabled MKR1000. Read more
