The myth of user-friendliness.

Posted 05-10-2011 at 10:37 PM by TobiSGD

In this post I want to point out my view on the so called user-friendliness.

I often read in posts on this forums things like: "If you want a more user-friendly OS then go for Ubuntu or Mint.", "Debian is less user-friendly than Ubuntu." or "Slackware is not a user-friendly distribution."

But is that true? I think not, at least not in general.

At first I have to define what user-friendliness in my eyes is. Assuming that I...

Posted 08-12-2010 at 03:31 AM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)
Updated 08-11-2013 at 11:44 AM by craigevil (added Antisocial ADP list)

If you are really worried about privacy there are a few things you can do including:
Use the Adblock Plus extension for Firefox and use the

Use a hosts file to block the multitude of clicktrackers

The balloon man

A. 1 year, 1 year and 36 years
B. 1 year, 4 years and 9 years
C....
