OK well maybe not "Bob" personally but 'god' didn't seem the right thing to thank at the moment. OK Off topic.

The other day I realized that the only way to fix webpage style conflicts with dark themed conflicts was to use a firefox add on. A little bit of searching later revealed "Stylish" Tnx-to-da-god-be this solves so many problems. It basically applies your own personal css styles to any page individually or all at once!

Why Desktop Linux is nowhere, part 3

In Part 2 I cried over software support in Linux. Now it is time to bash Linux soft skills.

Linux is nowhere communicating. The media presents it like Windows, only free and better. People start to feel themselves paying customers to Linux Inc. and get frustrated immediately.

Even worse, vendors start to think the same. I do not recall what exactly I was installing, but it was funny. A "run" file did it best to install itself and failed with some complaints....
