Linux is great... but it's not quite there yet.


Some of you hate me and some of you are actually nice. So I'll keep this short.
Here's another link that is SIMILAR (NOT EXACT) to what I had been trying to say.

"Linux needs to get its collective act together soon"

Linux is a community effort, if you really care, how about contributing instead of just posting URLs to Apple fan's blogs?

The same reason Europe will never unite into one country. Oh they cooperate when its suits them, and they play nice, but deep down inside every one of them thinks that “their” system is the best.

What does the guy know about Europe in the first place ? What does he know about a continent in which at least 14 different languages are spoken, instead of
one in which just American English is ? Making poor parallels like this is in no way a proper description of what the Linux situation is. Linux people just don't think their system is the best.

They know it. Period.

samael26: Great point... excellent reply. I share the same perspective as many of you and I understand what everyone is saying. That's the exact type of replies there should be on this forum. Thanks.

What? It's true. If you think something needs to be done make an effort to get it done, don't just stand outside and point yelling "You guys suck".

Another thread about "Linux is not ready for the desktop", or "Linux is not quite there yet", hmmmm.... you know, we get a lot of those without anything new. If I don't see one of those new threads every week, it surely feels like something is missing ^_^.

Now seriously, use the search button. This is just as popular as installing programs in Linux. Watch this too:

http://uploads.ungrounded.net/188000/188612_Posting.swf

it's always better to post in an existent thread then to start a new one... especially when nothing that you are adding is new. In this case, it's nothing wise or interesting either, just quotes from another site....

P.S: I went through your threads, and it looks like all you actually do is to bash Linux and you apparently loves to call peoples names as well. I'm reporting this thread to be closed. If you don't like Linux, use something else. Or at least stop posting useless things like this... it's not like anyone is forcing you to use Linux, it's an option.

Not only you bash Linux, but you also like to call LQ member names. And you are also posting in the wrong place, non-techical questions goes to general, not Linux - General. Just watch the link above, it will be good for you. Looks like you are both new to Linux and to forums, so please watch that ^_^

None of my posts were intended to bash linux. YOU like others ASSUMED that I was bashing linux. Your own reaction to something is your fault, not mine. And I was called names WAY before I said anything. So don't give me that bs.

I still find it funny that you all keep claiming that I must be "new" to Linux. You're childish posts are getting you no where. Why not respond like a normal human being and stop feeding the rampant surge of immaturity on this site.

I totally understand that you were called names before you started calling peoples names. It's because you use a very childish language. Like in the above post, it was totally uncalled for to say "bs". It's a very immature, pre-puberty attitude... That angers a lot of peoples, not me though, because I was a kid once too.

I'm adding you to my ignore list now, I'm wasting precious time talking to you that I could actually be helping peoples out with real problems. I would also recommend everyone to do the same. It's pointless to talk to peoples like him. He has already decided that he wants to spam the forums and pretend to be tough. "Never argue with an idiot: They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience" ^_^.

All of the posts linked to by Megaman X show you starting a thread with the theme of "This sucks, Linux sucks, Linux users suck, I can't find out how to do anything and you need to fix it." If that's normal in Texas, I'm glad I don't live there.
