quote: Inserting lots of extra crap in the middle makes no sense. Doesn't matter how superior you may or may not think everything else is...or how little inconvenience it seems like to you. The point is that it makes not the slightest amount of sense for anyone else. Why would they go thorugh all that BS instead of just like they're used to?

quote: At least Linux still understands what an OS is...and isn't. An OS isn't a GUI. It's not a web browser. It's not a media player. An OS is the logic necessary for the hardware bits to talk to each other, and a framework for other applications to run on. That's pretty much it.That way, if you want a different GUI, you can use a different GUI. Etc. ad infinitum. We've let MS and Apple move the goalposts on what an OS is to essentially be a whacking huge bundle of dizzying numbers of applications, 99% of which have nothing to do with being an operating system.

quote: But why do people hate on the open source community? I've never met nicer people. Yes some have less than desirable people skills, but they know their S. Unlike the guy in Bangalore or the kid at the "imbecile" bar.
