LXer: This Takes The Cake: Sam Varghese of IT Wire Goes On The Offensive Again

Published at LXer:

Sam Varghese is a columnist for the IT Wire website who likes Ubuntu and apparently has great respect for Mark Shuttleworth. He writes opinion pieces that I often disagree with but he most certainly is entitled to his opinion. He has now, on three separate occasions this year, written pieces which are harshly critical of Ubuntu's detractors. Indeed, in a piece published today Sam Varghese spends three pages explaining The main problem with Linux: ignorant users. However, he doesn't talk about users in general. The three pages are dedicated to attacking someone Mr. Varghese seems to see as the epitome of the ignorant user: yours truly.

To be honest, Caitlyn Martin does seem to have a knack for pissing people off.

Including quite a few Slackware users.

Oh, it's Caitlyn Martin spouting off again is it? What goes around, comes around, I guess.

Thanks for the warning, I won't bother reading it then.
