I decided to post a little introduction to myself here: Ask me who I was last March, and I would have had WinBloze 7 Beta on my main computer and would have been part of Micro$uck's test project for WinBloze 7 and would have been excited about it. However, that changed as soon as my network adapter changed and the new one worked with Linux. As soon as I tested the new adapter with Mint (I'd say about a year ago, in July 2009) I began to really value Linux for what it is.

However, I knew about Linux long before that. I started with gOS 2, which was my first distro. I had tried it back in about February 2008. I first learned about Linux back in mid-2007, from an article in PCMag that spanned several pages. I had quite a hard time back then, and Ubuntu Hardy was no different than gOS.

So then what took me so long from knowing about Linux to finally becoming an active user? My house was nothing but Wi-Fi. My mother set a secure wireless network up back then, and I couldn't connect to it because my adapter (Linksys WUSB54GSC) wasn't recognized by Linux. I had the patience to continue.

Then, in June 2008, my family got hit by the economic collapse here in the USA: The mortgage on my old house doubled and my family had to leave because of the rate increase. So, we were stuck in a hotel room until my family and I could end up in a new house. That Christmas, I wanted a netbook, and got my wish (the one I'm typing on, an Acer Aspire One AOA110-1545). It came with Linux preinstalled, and I liked it all around.

From then to June 2009, I still had WinBloze on my desktop, as Linux still didn't work with my wireless network adapter. Then, in June 2009 as I said, I got a new wireless network adapter, and in July decided to test it with Linux Mint 7. It worked, even from the Live CD! Now,

Conservatism + Billions of $$ + "Christianity" = Hypocrisy

Posted 03-06-2011 at 11:00 AM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

There has been plenty of hype from the government about conservatives and how they equate conservatism with Christianity. They claim to go to church often, but that doesn't mean they're Christian. They claim to do good deeds (while sinning in other areas), but that doesn't mean they're Christian. They call themselves "Christians", but the way they act they are beginning to agitate me. Why? Read on.

My blog here has a new home on Blogspot

Posted 01-30-2011 at 10:18 PM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

For those of you who haven't seen my blog on LQ, I have decided to fork it over to here. The reason why I am choosing to bring my blog here is because (1) I want to have more control over my blog, (2) I want to get less criticism, and (3) The LQ blog was created at a time when I was less mature.

GNOME Shell: Still not as mature as what the mockups tell about it

Posted 01-29-2011 at 08:56 PM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

I hate it when people say that many of the changes proposed for GNOME Shell are already implemented when really the only mature mockup is the Overview relayout.

What about this mockup? How come the concept of a built-in Shell screen lock isn't reality?

How about this one? When will the shell actually replace GDM (or at least have a login interface that runs on top of it)?

And what about this? When is GNOME Shell ever going to have a built-in on-screen...

Bug #1 in My Family: The fact that I don't have a say in how rules are made

Posted 01-26-2011 at 08:21 PM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

Rules in moderation are okay in my opinion. Especially those here on LQ, since they help to keep those who troll about proprietary operating systems off these forums. They're also good at school, since they help to keep violence out of the school and keep kids safe.

However, the one place rules are *not* okay (especially if I don't have a say in how they're made) is the very place in which I live. Sure, those that are critical to my safety (such as *not* running out in front of a...

Chromium Settings Window replaced with settings page

Posted 01-23-2011 at 10:00 AM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

For those of you who have the Chromium Daily PPA, what was the Properties window has moved here.

Apparently, Chromium is becoming more and more like Chrome OS every day

What is your opinion?
