The Truth About Linux Really Pisses Off The Linux Cult.

The absolute best way to piss off the Linux cult and to bring them to
their knees is to post links containing legitimate Linux users, or
legitimate Linux organizations who document Linux's warts.
Watching the half assed Linux cultists attempt to discredit these
people because they can't address the points which are all well
documented and well known in the community, is worth a fortune in
gold.

Here are a couple of links, all posted by reputable Linux advocates
who are willing to discuss Linux's problems.
If you want to drive the Linux cultist type up a wall, use these links
because they are proven material.

Here is one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sh-cnaJoGCw

2012 is an amazing time for Linux. Huge changes. Amazing
opportunities. ...And lots and lots of ways that using Linux just
plain sucks. We'll look at some of the more interesting (to me) things
that Linux sucks at -- and exactly how to fix them.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcRE3bxdAao

"Top 6 Linux disadvantages (I was a bit over the top and said reason
why it sucks, but I still love Linux) 1 ? Around 20% of the Community
are immature free loading nasty people who leave nonconstructive
insulting terrible comments 2 ? Fedora represents division and no
unity with Linux Standards 3 ? Sound problems in Linux poor Support
4 ? Graphics Performance poor Support 5 ? Bug Regression ? many things
used to work correctly in Linux years ago but these days does not work
well at all such as Text to Speech, Voice Recondition, Recording
Screencasts. 6 ? Poor Commercial Support ? very little Commercial
Companies support Linux because they think the Linux Community are
Free Loaders who would never pay for any software "


Use these two links, amongst others to drive Linux users up the wall.
Watch them attempt to discredit the people whop posted these videos.
They of course ignore the fact that these people are well respected
people in the computer field and not your average Linux troll.
Doesn't matter to the Linux cultist because dicrediting is all he can
do.

My advice is to post these videos as rebuttles to the Linux cultists
who refuse to admit Linux's problems and utter the standard Linux
mantra "works for me". These videos are excellent for uncovering their
lies about X, audio, package management, upgrades and other Linux
disasters.

Have fun!

   We don't agree with you. Why do you think we would agree with them?

   Is it some sort of warped "appeal to authority" fallacy?

    Your first "cite" is obvious troll-bait.

    Hardly compelling.

    If you bait the trolls, they will come.

    In other words, the fact that some person some where has had a problem
    with some thing means that no one any where can have success with the
    same something.

    You know that rationale cuts both ways.

    At least details would provide some useful information that could be
    seen as a king of public service like the old Suse compatability 
    database was.

    Mindless FUD is not useful.

The name gives it away who it is and that he is just trolling.

Hi, Interested in trying Linux? Well you came to comp.os.linux.advocacy for some reason, and you probably won't stay long. Here's a list of Linux distributions to choose from. Ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com Newbie friendly and good support forums. SuSE http://www.novell.com/linux Pay for some support if you're not opposed to spending a little money. Fedora Core http://fedoraproject.org If you're more comfortable with your computer, try this one out. If you get frustrated, don't give up so easy. There is a wealth of information online for whichever distro you choose....

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!

I have Linux! I have Linux!

There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up.

Linux Could NOT Have Invented Linux
The current view in Western technology is that Linus Torvalds invented Linux. Nothing could be further from the truth. The technical complexity and useability of Linux make it beyond the capability of what man could produce using the tools available in 1992. My theory is that Ancient Astronauts descended from the sky on 'Chariots of the Gods' and showed Linus *how* to write an Operating System. These alien visitors must have appeared as strange to the young Torvalds, and so he may have mistaken them for carpet vendors. -- w:04 On Tue, 08 Jun 2004 14:28:27 GMT, Erich Von ...

ssh over php from w2k to linux hangs (linux to linux ok)
Hello, I am trying to make some bash-scripts, that are to be executed on remote linux-boxes available to some Windows users over a php-interface. To require no interaction from the part of the windows users, I installed cygwin, generated rsa-keys and copied the public key on the server. I also changed the user, running the apache service appropriately and I added cygwin/bin to this users path. So, executing "ssh user@server something" worked using the cygwin-bash or the windows CLI. However, if I execute a php-script containing a "system" or "proc_open" with this command, it never returns. The same php-script *does* work on linux! Any clues? Greetings Neven ...

The Truth About Linux Advocacy And How It REALLY Works.......
1. User has a problem with Linux and makes a post in COLA, say something like this: "In CUPS when I try to use lpadmin it fails with Unable to copy interface script - No such file or directory!" 2. Linux Advocates like Chris "The Human Hoover" Ahlstrom, Dumb Willy Poaster and others swarm the place claiming "It works for me, you must be doing something wrong". And the COLA Linux loons circle the wagon in an effort to deflect the intruder. 3. The poor OP is overwhelmed but manages to do a little detective work and stumbles upon this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cups/+bug/499585 "This will be fixed at least in Saucy as we will make use of the interface script concept for PPD/driver-less printing. Changed in cups (Ubuntu): status: Confirmed �� Triaged importance: Undecided �� Critical milestone: none �� ubuntu-13.10 " 4. And like magic the Linux zealots now disappear and ignore the thread because they know they have been exposed for LIEing for LIEnux. Oh and BTW notice that this bug, considered critical, took a year and a half to even have a hope of being fixed. It's still open BTW.......From 01/16/12 to 7/19/13. That's how LIEnux "advocacy" works in COLA and it's true for other places as well. -- flatfish+++ PLEASE VISIT OUR HALL OF LINUX IDIOTS: http://linuxidiots.blogspot.com/ ...
