Gentoo Sucks, Ubuntu Doesn’t.

Gentoo
Ubuntu

biodegradablegeek.com: I used Gentoo for a few years, and at first I loved it. Mainly because of portage. When I first began my new job, the only distro available was Ubuntu, which deep down I hated without any real reason. But 10 minutes into using it, I made the decision that I’m wiping out Gentoo.

Pay As You Go Computing? Linux is "Free As You Go!"

OS

oneclicklinux.com: Microsoft has patented "pay as you go" PC computing. This means users could purchase low cost computers with usage based fees. A user would only pay for and use the specific software application needed. No thanks!

“The printer story” redux: a testimonial about the injustice of proprietary firmware

I’ve always supported free software, but never felt the concrete importance of it until proprietary firmware threatened to cause a big problem, in terms of money, time, and environmental impact, for the company where I work. It’s a mid-sized company, employing about one thousand people. It’s highly production-oriented, and we need to print about two or three thousand paper sheets per week only for the production plans, on a special kind of paper. This number doesn’t include any reprints or further needs, so the total printed pages can be even higher. We used to print everything with an old printer, which worked fine, but it didn't have an integrated stapler, and required a lot of human time to staple all the sheets as needed. After a production increase and the consequent increase in printing of orders, we asked for a new printer with an integrated stapler. After some weeks of testing and a lot of work to try and make the printer handle our production orders, we faced a big problem: the printer couldn’t do what we needed. If we tried to print on the special paper, the printer printed perfectly but automatically disabled the stapler, because it’s developed to not work with a thicker sheet of paper. We would need a more complex (and expensive) stapling system. If we modified the paper settings to “normal paper,” the stapler would work fine, but the printing came out faded.
