Topics I am sick of.

Posted 08-16-2014 at 10:08 PM by Randicus Draco Albus

Excuse me, but time to rant.
Two things I am SICK of seeing on fora everywhere are:
Questions and pleas for help about Wine.
Pleas for help to dual-boot a Linux system with Windows.

Although I almost always ignore any thread concerning those two topics, the shear number of them, everywhere on the internet, has driven me to the point of being sickened by the sight of those titles. Either install and use something else or continue using Windows. Too simple for many people...

Good-bye Debian

Posted 08-13-2014 at 04:46 AM by Randicus Draco Albus

This is my first attempt to write a blog. I have never had an interest in doing such things, but the time has come to rant. For the last two years, I have seen posts on numerous fora by people looking for, or complaining because they cannot find, stability and cutting edge. There are two problems I do not understand:
1) The desire for SNS. Version 3.18 that was released three or four months ago is too old. I MUST have 3.19, and I MUST have it NOW! This growing trend of believing software is...
