Have Linux Lovers gone to the dark side?

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

I was having a conversation with my alter ego earlier on. No, not the one in a mirror. A real person living on the other side of the world to me. This person is as much a windows person as I am a Linux person.

This person lamented to me that with the release of w8 the Linux crowd have become extremely nasty and trollish in bringing the newest offering of microsoft down. They stated that Linux people never used to be like this and any sympathy he felt for them has now evaporated due to their latest actions.

Personally I had not noticed such abnormal behaviour.

Remind your friend that

Remind your friend that Microsoft is no good soul trying to sell good software, but has rather always lied and FUD his way to the top, not to mention their unethical or outright criminal behavior towards the competition. Their software is buggy and intentionally fragile so they can always sell the "fix" in the next version, their software has backdoors so the US goverment can spy on any computer on the planet using Windows. Etc, etc.

So yeah, it the truth offends, find friends with better common sense.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
