And sometimes they're just lunatics

The problem with the internet, really, is that it lets lunatics connect with each other and get organized (in whatever manner appropriate for lunatics). As if drum circles weren't enough, now they have websites that can attract others with weak minds and recruit them to their "cause", for the internet reaches much farther than the sound of beating drums.

Want an example? Boycott Novell!

Among the many asinine statements on this page, I'd like to chew on just a few.

One thing I noticed this week is that the mono group has been able to encumber a growing number of Ubuntu (not Kubuntu) applications with proprietary Microsoft technology. However, the documentation and program descriptions do not warn of this (of course they want to keep it under the radar).


Yes, Mono dudes are hacking their life away just to infect your system with a modern development environment. Maybe they should put their keyboards down and come stick you with an AIDS needle instead? Try apt-get remove'ing that shit.

Then it goes on to talk about how many packages on Ubuntu depend on Mono:


dapper 159 ?
gutsy 150 ?
hardy 176 ?


(Not sure what the question marks are about. Maybe he was unsure of his manhood?) Anyhow, lets not forget the fact that Debian based distros like to break every package into every imaginable sub-component, so that users can recombine these pieces to realize infinite custom configurations which all don't work. Freedom Baby! But anyways, point is, your numbers are slightly inflated there. But nevermind that.

Let's continue,


A risk here is that, especially in regards to media (audio, video, pictures, text, etc.) it will provide a ramp for OOXML, WMA, WMV, HDPhoto, and others along with the prerequiste DRM. I would expect that if Micrsooft makes further contracts with Novell or other turncoats, that this will soon start to cover DRM.


Yea because, you know, just because Novell decides the write the code, you have to use it. Maybe RMS was right about the whole software being a drug thing, except it applies to free software. I mean, it's free, so you must use it.

Oh wait, isn't that what this whole GPL thing is about? Doesn't it say somewhere in there that you can take someone else's code and modify it how you want so that you can take out all the things you think are going to kill you and use it to continue to live in your freedom bubble?

Nevermind that Novell is trying to put features in to Linux that people actually want. Features that solve people's problems.

Anyways, going back to my first point, the worst part of all of this is that people read your shit, and take it to the next level.

I'm sorry, I have to quote this one in it's entirety, because it's too good.


I've just started a replacement for Tomboy. I think it (or another notes program if there already is one) should replace Tomboy ASAP in the GNOME desktop because Tomboy is poisoning GNOME distributions like Red Hat and Ubuntu with it's Microsoft patented MONO dependency crap as you can read about on
http://boycottnovell.com/2008/02/15/mono-contamination-in-ubuntu/

I've never written a program before so I also need some help. Also I need a place to put it on the web.

I've already gotten it so you can type stuff in a text field, so it already almost has all the functionality you need in a note taking program.

Thanks,


Yes, Thanks indeed for that.

I see people that boycott novell in the same light as the people that refuse to use NVidia's kernel drivers because "they're not open source". Idealistic crybabies.

Kudos to you! :P

There you said it -

"The problem with the internet, really, is that it lets lunatics connect with each other and get organized (in whatever manner appropriate for lunatics)"

And you have a Blog, expressing your opinion. I am sure you will get like minded traffic to follow ;)

You are good fun!! Great lunch time reading to LOL! It's not the content, its you who is the fun!! But please make the contents more wired and crazy. Then we get a double whammy!!

Keep it up!

First of all, I want to say that I mostly agree with you that Boycott Novell is a lunatic blog.

Secondly, I find it ironic that you criticize them for being lunatic-fringe material.

;)

Ok. I just finished writing an extremely long comment. Well, it was way too long and I've been meaning to start a little blog. So, I think I'll just use it as my first post. So, if you get a chance, check it out.

I have been a Linux user for 10 years and used Linux almost exclusively for three years (had an unnatural attraction for Flight Sim, but that passed and I can't remember the last time I booted XP).

I agree with your post. Too many Linux users treat software like religion. Anyway, like I said, I highly agree with you. I just wanted you to know that there's at least one hardcore Linux user who agrees with you on how there are lunatics out there, for sure. And the whole "Boycott Novell" is one of them. If you get a chance, check out my blog to see what I wanted to write on here and let me know what you think.

Kranny said...

Yah ,Seriously there are many madcaps out there over internet...But really fun reading these..

Bill Gates said...

The moron never wrote an application?

Why don't we write it in fortran? or C?

Mono is infected anyway, right?

Who gives a shit, if Linux has a modern programming framework, anyway...

Aaaaaargh! There is no fucking word "nevermind". There is a word "never", and a word "mind". "Nevermind" was an album by Nirvana, but it is not an actual word. Using it just makes you sound like all the other idiots with blogs.

Lol Lolovici said...

And here I was just thinking a couple of days ago: "damn this Tomboy thingy is quite a useful small application". But now I see I was terribly terribly wrong. Thank you Boycottnovel for opening my eyes. Can I use toilet paper in the future for my notes or is that infected by $M also??!!!one

As for the second guy well.. He never written a program before but understands how Mono is infected. Kudos to him. I suggest he first learns Lisp and then write his tomboy replacement in that. That will show them mono bastards.

Also Tomboy has no other feature except "type stuff in field". Doesn't have automatic linking between notes, search through notes, text color and other useful markup stuff.
