The decline and fall of the Linux forum - Episode V : You can't "educate" people, so just give up...

Foreword

This was broken off from Episode IV and spun off into it's own episode. Episode IV had accumulated lots of addendum sections and become far to sprawling as a result, plus Episode IV had a "theme" and the below content wasn't it. The first piece was written some time late last year and the last parts earlier this year, I have only tidied...

The decline and fall of the Linux forum - Episode IV : Sadly Linux got popular...

(...and what you can't do about it)

Foreword

This may be the final instalment. I wasn't going to write this one at all. In fact after the last one, I left various Linux forums for quite a while and perhaps during that time, things cooled off, or perhaps I did not feel the urge to publish my thoughts on this. But as issues with Linux forum culture and certain types of...

Foreword

And here we go again with another opinion piece and long awaited 3rd instalment in this acclaimed series... As with the award winning "decline and fall of the linux forum" and it's sequel, this is merely a platform for some theorising and surmising and exploring just what drives people to participate in such mediums. The fact remains however that we can surmise and theorise all we like and it won't change a damned thing.

Foreword

Yet another opinion piece, so be warned. This is what happens when someone has spare time in between the usual chaotic stupidity known as "the working day".

Introduction

I have read - and I expect most have - threads of the sort where the user just throws in the towel and reverts back to whatever OS they were using before their failed foray into Linux.

It always takes me right back to the 80's in that it reminded me...

Foreword

As this is a blog, you may find some comments offensive. If this is indeed the case, then I would strongly advise against reading blogs - or grow a thicker skin. The comments or examples in this article are not directed at anyone or any particular forum. I may allude to some forums, but won't name any names - if you make the connection, you might have made the right or the wrong connection. This is mainly because, it's not fair to those sites to just single them out and...
