Bug 626593 – Gnome ate my boyfriend Help

Filed under
Humor

GNOME is an open-source desktop environment used with operating systems such as Linux. Like most open-source projects it has a bug tracker where users can report issues they are having, and developers can respond and/or implement fixes.

Yesterday, however, the GNOME bug tracker was used for a completely different request. A girlfriend, named Ilana, of a purported GNOME and Linux-obsessed guy posted asking how she can, “bring my boyfriend back from “Linux Land.”"

Here’s an excerpt from the post:

Because of you, my boyfriend is chronically attached to his computer and has ceased to pay attention to me. I try to plan fun things for us to do on the weekends and then he cancels on my because of GNOME conferences! He even went to the Netherlands to GUADEC two weeks ago and left me at home alone for a week! He keeps going to all these conferences and I just don’t know what to do. Apparently there is some Boston Summit thing he keeps talking about?

rest here

Linux & Radio: What You Can Do With It Now

Third, there is a belief that Linux apps are still too primitive to get anything productive done. Besides (whiny voice), “I tried Linux in 2005, and it was just too ha-r-r-d.” Sorry. A lot of those objections are no longer valid. Linux is solid, stable, free for the most part and has become as easy to navigate as Windows. And those old apps are all grown up now. You may have skipped over previous Linux articles we’ve run, but don’t skip this one. We’re not going to crow about Linux like it’s something brand new, because we both know it has been on your radar screen for 20+ years. This time, we’d rather you read about what you can do with it at your station — and primarily in your production studio — right now. Read more
