Poser Hater

http://lunduke.com/?p=429

What the fuck. This is the quality of presentations at LinuxFest NW?

First of all, you just took my posts and made them and to slides. Do you see anything that says G-P-fucking-L on this page? I didn’t think so.

Secondly, your talk is just straight up dumb. You have a bunch of the same, lame, and obvious ideas as everyone else. Donations for software that doesn’t exist yet? Telling freetards what to do? Uh huh. Keep trying.

Thirdly, nuh-vidia? OpenSuse build service is awesome because it saves on bandwith charges? Seriously. Your audience is more retarded than you are. Congratulations. I too, can make myself look smart by surrounding myself with a bunch of freetards.

Fourthly, does anyone at these open source conference know how to film a presentation? Seriously. I want to see the fucking slides. I don’t want to see your douchebag face for 30 minutes. It was more fun watching you try to get your external monitor working. In fact, your presentation would have been awesome if that’s all you did the whole time.

Couldn't agree with you more. Somehow everyone was buzzing recently about how enlightened that presentation was, but it was just full of recycled complaints and totalitarian ideas.

Dude, check out Jupiter Broadcasting, the "company" that produced this video. Imagine the worst Public Broadcasting show you've ever seen, plus Linux geeks. Should have called it Uranus Broadcasting.

Between taking 20 minutes to get the computer working on the projector, and Compiz, the slides barely worked. And he gave a link to download them (they're open source slides so you can change the name to GWhats wrong With Linux or KWhats Wrong With Linux.

Also, yeah, Linux? They don't have any video editing capability. Even Windows Movie maker is a big step up.

He didn't sound very smart, surrounded by freetards or not.

It's nice to see that the hater has reached a lot of people in the linux cummunity.
But lunduke's presentation is a bit too tame and lacks a lot of details (e.g. no mention of stable ABI/API). His proposed solutions are pretty much crap. He only presents solutions that he himself says havn't worked in the past. I.e. the audio app Ardour developer can't live off the donations, Linspire Click And Run.

He also mentions that most users can't just fix or code stuff themselves, because they don't have a clue or the time to do it.

The only thing you can really get from this presentation is the state of mind of the lusers. You get the typical responses from the audience: we're working on it, will be fixed soon, worksforme.
But on the other hand, also a lot of bitching and acknowledgement from other lusers about stuff that doesn't work. The woman, who administrates an ubuntu lab and has to spend nights after installing an update to make everything work as before.

What most lusers don't get is that people don't want to use an OS. They want to use applications that help solve their problem. Desktop linux should not pretend to able to help everybody, because it doesn't.

http://linuxhaters.blogspot.com/2008/10/eof.htmlIt was fun while it lasted folks. I'm closing up shop. Moving on.

So in true open source fashion, as the maintainer of this project, I am going to arbitrarily drop off the face off the of this earth for purely selfish reasons, and leave the entire cause in limbo. That is how open source projects truly die. But hey, all the material is out there for y'all to see (it's "open source" in it's own way), so maybe someone else will take up the cause. Carry on, lusers!
So you implicitly want someone to take your material, fork it, and make a worse version than the original, and call it glinuxhater, klinuxhater, openlinuxhater, glinuxhater isn't windowshater(GIWH), etc.

Anonymous said...

If to cut to the heart of the problem:
1. Development costs money.
2. Donations does not cover development costs.
3. There's no viable economic model for developing desktop software for Linux (other than commercial ties-in, like Firefox).

Proposed solution:
Distributions should divert resources from main income avenues (web/ file servers) and invest those resources to replicate a 200b$ industry - an economical suicide.

In short, he's an idiot.

I work writing proprietary software and our product has at least two dozen competitors. $200bn industry maybe but I would consider a lot of that is duplicated effort. Open source can succeed in just needs a rich sugar daddy (Obama do you read this blog?)

While the guy telling the truth: that it's a fucking waste of time and money, and the Linux foundation should be using its cash to get fucking sleep/hibernate working, gets modded down as 'Overrated'.

ardour doesn't have real competition under linux Yeah, 5 years ago, now there's energyxt(€59), reaper($50), luna(€49), traverso(free)... All of them (except, of course, gpl traverso) support vsts and are particularly innovative over the old daw approach: reaper with the routing, energyxt(built-in synth/sampler), luna (modular fx environment). They are all multiplatform and portable. BTW the three mentioned programs are IMO doing more to create a competition in this field than ardour. Logic pro 7 (2005) price was $999, Logic pro 8(2007) $449 Where is our GarageBand? Or Audition?Answer to the second question is: pick up one of the three mentioned software. About GarageBand: forget it, there's not something even similar for windows. The point is to provide a library (samples, loops) as rich and good as the apple's one, without reaching a $500 price. But hey, you can get some sounds from freesound.org...

I just installed Vista today, after two years of using Linsux.

Its first order of business was to BSOD on me after 10 minutes of usage.

However, after it rebooted, Vista nicely asked me if I wanted to troubleshoot the crash. Sure I did. Then it even more politely informed me that the crash occurred with unstable NVIDIA SATA drivers, and that it was a known issue, and that SP1 provides a patch. It also asked if I wanted to install SP1, which I wholeheartedly accepted.

It's now running as smooth as a dwarven ass.

Linsux will be desktop ready when it begets similar functionality -- and I'm __NOT__ counting bugzillas, Justfuckinggoogleit, endless forum jungles or IRC asstards.

Though I doubt that the philosophy and "common practices" of Linsux as an ecosystem will EVER allow such a tool. Ever.

Shit I'm glad I'm back on Vista. Hey, guess what, I even gladly went out and paid for the antivirus. Quality software costs.

Actually, quality everything costs. Case closed.

If it's ATI or nVidia the ABI / API would have changed and the "good" binary drivers would have stopped working. The open source drivers wouldn't be able to deliver the performance required.

If it's Intel, you're already behind by having an Intel GPU, but second your drivers actually perform worse than the previous version AND Intel actually provides open source drivers. Don't know how they fucked that one up.

My favorite version of YouDon'tNeedThat(tm), seen here on this very thread, is when they defend Linux's total lack of user applications by saying "for 95% of people all they need is a web browser". I love how this movement that's supposedly about empowering people to use computers to do things can't deliver anything to an end user except for a locked down thin client that they are expected to never, ever change anything on (unless they want to become master-level UNIX administrators). Macs come with all sorts of awesome, functional tools for people to do all kinds of creative things on - edit movies, compose and produce music, organize their photos, burn DVDs - and its very easy to purchase and install programs that create graphics and animation and formatted publications. It's not quite as built-in on Windows, but the same thing applies there, too. The big evil corporations make it easy for individual users to do cool and interesting and creative things on their machines, while the FOSS community insists that Jane and Joe Enduser shouldn't ever venture outside of the confines of their web browser. That's some "freedom" they're selling.acrio

People get caught up in the mistake of thinking that because you spend most of your time using your web-browser that it's all you need. However, every so often you'll end up doing something else and if that experience sucks on Linux then it remains a compelling reason to switch.

When I used Linux exclusively I didn't run into a scenario where I couldn't do something until seven months down the road when I decided to start dumping my pictures off my memory stick only to realize that the asshole who wrote the drivers for my multicard reader had no interest in making the memory stick portion of it work. About a month later I needed to edit some video and that turned out to be nightmare. A little while later I found that some streaming media services didn't work like Netflix's Instant Viewing. A little while afterward I discovered that suspend and hibernate didn't work. Then I found that ripping my PSX games wasn't a straight forward process--I did it but I had to write a script. And it just kept cascading from there.

There were some persistent problems as well. I had the awesome choice of using the crashaholic Flash plugin or the in-the-dark-ages Flash plugin. Sound would act retarded from time to time where it'd intermittently decide to only handle one source at a time. Video was noticeably laggy. DVD playback was tearrific and volatile at times. X sessions loved to crash after being up for a few days. So it really offered a sub-par experience in day to day usage.

"When I used Linux exclusively I didn't run into a scenario where I couldn't do something until seven months down the road"

That mirrors my same experience. Having worked in IT, I wanted to see if it was possible for a geeky person to try and work with it realistically for a few months. The more I used it, the more I realized the platform wasn't ready. Things I took for granted or trivial under OSX/Windows became real work under Linux. Like having to mess with sources list or config files just to download a certain app in repository. Or hoping someone made the latest firefox/openoffice/evolution/pidgin release as a deb file instead of waiting 6months down the road. Then there were things that I missed like being able to rip my kids education software into ISO files, and using daemon tools/slysoft virtual cd to run them from the external drive. Then other little free things like DVD to PSP/dvix conversion freeware, HDFabdecrypter to rip movies, windows dvd movie maker, Paint.net, freecommander, fastone photo resizer, latest Kompozer, Klite codec pack, atube streaming video/audio catcher, Burnaware, Cobian Backup. Not to mention my games Counterstrike Source, and my kids games which require client download software like Wizard 101, Free realms, certain kid friendly/math education sites that use shockwave, etc.

Over time I realized this wasn't cutting it. Even my old Commodore 64 had a better experience, at least there was more software to choose from.

Actally, GarageBand is a pretty blatant rip off of Acid Music, which is quite a bit nicer than GarageBand. See this is more of a fanboy issue than a fosstard issue, because you simply ignore things that are better and have been around longer than your product du jour. But yeah, if I wanted to do loop based production, I'd use Acid over Garage Band 7 days a week.

They can load it, and draw a few lines real quick and say "see linux has a vector art program!" on the forums and claim they have no need for Adobe illustrator of Corel Draw.

And then you get deep into actually using Inkscape... and learn that, yes even simple fosstard developed vector drawing applications fail.

3. Your calling other people retarded when all your doing is showing how utterly retarded you are?

4. Constructive criticism is maybe useful, even genuine criticism is useful, but all your doing is throwing around a generous dose of written diarrhea and insults without even trying to sound informed.... Idiot

Linsux users are just too bitter and jealous because their toy OS does not work.

They become very angry when they read stuff like LHB because they know it is all true. If it weren't they wouldn't pay any attention to begin with.

And when they write in all caps and start cursing around, then you can bet they're just in the middle of reconfiguring xorg.conf, wpa_supplicant.conf, or lost somewhere in the bullshit jungle that is kernel config menu...

Actually, I have watched this blog for a while, and pretty much all the who's who of the linux community have chimed in. And LH is right, that guy in video stole his list of criticisms directly from this web site.

OR another possibility is that LH is spot on in his criticisms and even the Linux foundation accepts linux failings, and admits there is no solution, and desktop linux (and foss applications) will continue to be crap. Basically LHs thesis all along.

You are a retard (that is you fail to learn from your mistake and have trouble thinking rationally about things) for thinking it could be different after a decade (an eternity in tech business).

You seem to think that some amount of criticism could be helpful. When in fact, linux is as good as it will ever get. That is, a river a mile wide and an inch deep of flowing diarrhea.

At this late date linux lacks basic functionality. What is there is buggy and slow. There is no solution, and the for pay industry all but ignores Linux. The situation has not improved one iota in the last decade, the river of shit has only gotten wider. There is no reason to think it will or even ~could~ get better.

You are a retard for thinking it could change, because it won't. That is obvious to just about everyone (including the Linux foundation BTW) The only people who think otherwise I refer to collectively as fosstards.

But no worries!!! Half of everyone is blow average intelligence, and so are you. You have plenty of company down there in sub mediocrity thinking skills.

Everyone who is still defending linux at this point is a retard, that includes you. Deal with it.

List of issues, yesterday alone with Ubuntu 8.04:

Installed Dia (aka so called visio replacement): functionalities minimal (but still sufficient for what I needed to do): basically from a strictly functional point of view if MS Visio was Photophsop, Dia would be Paint. Aside from limited functionalities, there's a huge issue with in DIA: not only is the UI bad, but why on earth does the "Save As" dialog only displays the "home dir" icon, the "Desktop" icon, and the "File system" icon, even when other shortcuts such as Windows share are visible in Nautilus and in the same "Save As" dialog in Open Office? Why on earth does the system refuse to open a dia file copied/moved to a windows server directly when Open Office documents open without trouble? Is this a freetarded punishment for using Windows server? Anyway that's a big FAIL, a UI epic FAIL.

Went to lunch. Saved all my docs before that... Guess what happened when I wanted to resume working? Xscreen Saver froze along with the rest of the system. The only solution was to shut down the whole computer manually, and this wasn't the first time this happened. I have been running Xscreen Saver for nearly two years on my Macbook: never saw anything like this. Now freetards, tell me more about these Windows BSOD after that.

GarageBand is a pretty blatant rip off of Acid Music No! It's a clever rip off of Logic. GB is not only a simple loop production software, it's also a midi and audio seq, it has a big and good sample library but it has an elementary GUI. When you buy a mac, you get a suite of program and GB is included, so you can say that it's for free. Yes, it shares with Acid some loop feature, but nowadays almost all new softare include advanced loop abilities... The point is that even a professional musician will be happy to use GB as a sketchbook, no need for other stuff. Then they'll buy Logic if they need something more. In this sense the discussion about GB for Linux should be considered, IMO. But talking about Linux GB when even more basic things are in a terrible status is nonsense.

Not surprising, since Apple hired Acid creator Chris Moulios to write it.

No! It's a clever rip off of Logic.

Also kinda true, since they share the same audio engine. Which is either pretty cool or an abomination, depending on your point of view. I'd rather wish the former Emagic guys focused just on Logic, the glacial pace of the updates since they got bought is a disgrace to a once awesome audio app.

@Earthling,

You are commenting on a thread about a video from the linux foundation, that closes with the conclusion, "linux sucks and anyone who doesn't agree is a moron, it probably can't be fixed, and even if it could it would take lots of money, which there is none, so it wouldn't happen, even if it was possible, which its not."

So when the linux foundation is telling you that linux sucks, and it is not going to get better (or even usable) and you disagree it indicates that you have some sort of learning disability.

That makes you a retard. QED.

P.S. - there are far more mac shills here than there are windows shills, that you failed to notice that would indicate deeper learning issues than previously suspected, so that makes you profoundly retarded. Please enlighen us what it is like to live without a brain.

I recently reinstalled my Vista Home Premium. My PC rebooted 4 times just to finish installation of the OS and all the VAIO drivers. After that it commited another 10+ reboots to install all updates since 2006 including SP1. I don't have the faintest idea why Windows Update can't finish all this shit in one go. It took me 8 hours in total from wiping my HD to having a ready-to-use system. How many reboots do I need to install Ubuntu, enabling proprietary drivers and install all updates? One. I remember a Vista book in a local bookshop says Vista requires less reboots than XP. Maybe True but still a joke.

Yesterday I installed Opensuse on girlfriend's computer, because she wanted to try Linux. Guess what, after installation the mouse did not work. Plain old USB mouse. And computer mice have been around since 1970's if not earlier. That's like omg forty fucking years!!!

MEGAFAIL!!!

And BTW regardless of what LH thinks of OpenSuse I find it the most usable distro of them all, if nothing then because I don't have to fuck around with free-only software, there is non-oss (as in Not Open Source) repo, available by default, and I can install mp3, codecs, whatnots right out the box. Not that it matters because everything else in linsux is broken (audio, video drivers, etc...)

That is until they released 11.0 with KDE4, which is the first in the upcoming milestones of Opensuse's epic fail demise.

Earthling said...

OK, fine, I'm walking around without a brain, if you say so.
However, your implication that the video was made by the Linux Foundation intrigued me, and I went googling.
My first Google search was for the keywords "Bryan Lunduke Linux Foundation". Apparently I do have enough brain cells to be able to do that before I make random claims in a comment section on a blog.
You're welcome to perform the same Google search and point me to where it says that Bryan Lunduke is a member of Linux Foundation staff.
So I did another search for "Linux Foundation staff" which turned up this page:
http://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/Staff
No matter how hard you look, Bryan's name is not on that page.
So there you go, and I quote from your comment above
"So when the linux foundation is telling you that ..."... myth busted, the Linux Foundation made no such statement.

Let the premise going forward be that I don't have a brain, but I still insist on getting an answer to my original question, which is why you are spending so much energy trying to make Linux look bad, given that you have no stake in seeing it fail (not a user and also not paid by a company that regards Linux as a threat).

You should go back and read Oiaohms posts. He covered the ground of all the made up shit already.

You know, I judge a persons level of inexperience with a computer based on how frequently they fuck up their computer and have to reinstall the operating system. Before I switched to Vista I had an XP install that i had used for 5 years over several different computers. This Vista computer here is a year and half old, still has the factory install of Vista on it;)

So if you are fucking you computer up so baddly that you need to reinstall, IMO that makes you a hack noob. Experienced computer users are able to... you know... use their computers without breaking it.

Kharkhalash said...

Is that all you can come up with after nearly a week? Nothing a bit more deserving of hatred in the Linux world? That's really lame LH. Either Linux isn't really as bad your puerile wintards make out or you're losing your touch.Pretty much every topic worth covering has been covered already, LHB is mostly in a perpetual "Rants n' Laughs" stage these days. It's a place to rant and vent and discuss, mostly. I don't see what the problem with that is, honestly.

Really you guys take every little problem Linux has and blow it completely out of proportion. It's no different then the people who say Windows BSODs all the time.

The lack of stable API isn't a little problem.

Neither is the mess that is the audio stack (simple solution: focus on Jack, make it nice and polished - It really is the best option, and with some more work, it deffinately has the potential to rival CoreAudio or ASIO)

The mess that is the graphics stack and X11 isn't blowing shit out of proportion.

The fragmentation and mockery that is LSB adoption is no small issue.

The sorry state of pro audio recording isn't blowing shit out of proportion, it's every bit as bad as people say it is. I've said it befor, and I'll say it again - 20 year old OSes, with 20 year old application, on 20 year old hardware, still wield better results and are more useful than current day Linux (see the Atari ST (Cubase and Logic 1.0! Midi!), Commodore 64/128 (SID FTW!) or the Amiga 500 - for simple solution, see Jack, for other solution, see Anon post regarding Ardour in previous thread - It's a pitty, Ardour even has VST/i support).

pointing out just how pathetic the state of video editing is isn't blowing shit out of proportion. (sorry, can't offer a simple solution here, other than watch and learn from Premiere/FCP/After Effects/Shake).

Pointing out just how sorely the graphics editing stack is lacking isn't blowing shit out of proportion, especially when the solution is as simple as getting over egos, and ponying up the fees to acquire a license from Pantone to build a useful colour-management library. Another simple solution, there's no reason to have both GIMP and Krita, the later already possesses most of the features the former lacks.

How about Blu Ray playback? The inability to play MP3 out of the box (again, simple solution, bite the bullet, swallow your pride, and pony up for the license fee).

Pointing out the lack of quality apps in general, quality in general, and the lack of polish isn't blowing shit out of proportion either - These are all valid complaints, based in reality - Windows BSODing every 47 seconds, however, is not. See the difference?

Here's another difference, the "OMG BSOD" crowd doesn't offer anything useful (because the complaint is completely worthless, based only os OS zealotry and politics), the complaints against Linux, however, if you get over the the Linux religion and learn to read between the lines and see them for what they are, are indeed useful criticisms.

It's valid criticism of an OS, not an affront to a way of life.

Ask for help? Every time I ask for something reasonable or something that would actually make Linux better you dumb fucks drop from the sky and start flinging shit everywhere.

Spot-on!

I'd like to add that some of my biggest show-stopping grievances just can't be fixed - Pantones are a great example of this - As long as the Linux community is unwilling to compromise, no ground will be gained in this regard, No ammount of programming can fix this problem (because it requires a license from Panatone(.

That's not entirely true, though - There's the possibility of creating another system to assign designations to colour-combinations in Ink, map said designations to CMYK colours, and map those CMYK colours to their closest RGB equivalents, and calibrate the monitor to display RGB colours as their closest CMYK equivalents while viewing CMYK graphics, and of course, providing a dead-tree version of the matching system as a failsafe, to circumvent the obvious defficiency of any such initiative, which is simply that a large chunk of CMYK colours cannot be reproduced within the RGB gamut (and vice-versa), call this new standard something else and make no reference to, or claim to be compatible with Pantone (to evade Trademark issues), and then convince people in the print industry to actually use it - except I'm fairly certain Pantone has a patent on such a process (or at the very least on the physical colour booklet which is the core component which makes the system work). in which case, it comes down to the original solution: either obtain a license for the PCMS, or license the patent, and reinvent the wheel.

To the poster that the comment I'm replying to was replying to: There, there's your solution. It's up to the FOSS community to either implement it, or shut the fuck up about GIMP and Krita.

I've done my part, now it's the programmers' turn. If you need me, I'll be on Photoshop, doing my job, thanks.

Is there a windows hater blog?

There is, but it's mostly just pictures of BSODs, drivel about Ballmer and chairs, pointing out that Blogger runs GoogleOS and hasn't been updated in about a year.

Optionally, there's slashdot.org

LH must be disappointed that he doesn't get response from GregKH or Drepper, but only from someone who has filmed a Linux Sucks video. This situation is not very consistent with the name of the blog.Miguel de Icaza and what's-his-name, (that guy who quit Novell after the MS deal, Jeremy Allison, was it?) Have both shown some LHB-love FTR.

which begs the question.For the record, misusing cliche expressions doesn't impress anyone, nor show signs of intellect, either.

why you are spending so much energy trying to make Linux look bad.

Linux and the freetard brigade manage quite well in that regard without our help, thanks.

And by the way, writing stuff together and putting (TM) at the end doesn't qualify as a sign of intelligence on planet Earth.

It's because some of us get tired of repeating ourselves after the dozen-dozenth time, it's a lot quicker and more concise to just trademark it - everyone with any reading comprehension, whose followed LHB for a even a small while knows exactly what is meant by the various TMs.

Hi,
you are right, I didn't mention Ardour's vst support because is not out of the box, so it's quite difficult for the user to recompile it with vst enabled. I never tried it though, but my experience as user(and the opinion of many daw programmers) shows that vst support in general is tricky, so Ardour would probably need a much bigger user base to test vst support. All the new daws show in the first years some problems with vst plugins (some are working, some aren't), and the amount of them is just too big to be tested by few users. And under mac vst is possible but there are not so many plugins available, so I wouldn't say that Ardour's vst support is perfect, though this is just only my (realistic) speculation.
On the other side, I totally agree about Jack. Unfortunately (unless I missed it), there's no mention of it in the slides of the "Poser Hater", and it seems to me that Linux devs won't go towards an unification. It would be against "choice"... Apple (the linux derivative with "some" proprietary stuff on top, as some luser probably would call it) did it since MacOS 10.0, though.

No, some of us here worked in the IT field,are also Linux programmers, geeks that have in some form or another used and/or intimately know linux very well.

It is here that we vent our frustrations when we get downmodded for bringing up issues on bugreports, forums, maillists, etc. It is here that we vent while being victim of the "linux red tape" which is full of ego, politics over reason, and lack of unity behind a reaosnable standard API. Simply put, we are also Linux users/ex-linux users whoo are just sick of the glacial pace that was supposed to be an "aklternative" OS.

Heck even n the 90s, when I knew Linux Desktop was not going to go anywhere or improve much, BeOS came out. BeOS was a breath of fresh air. BeOS (with a lifepsan of 4yrs) accomplished so much more compared to Linux Desktop, and I was really excited. So I'm sad that BeOS is gone. I never reached that same feeling with Linux Desktop, I don't think anyone would really miss it, there are far better options both free and non-free.

I never tried it though, but my experience as user(and the opinion of many daw programmers) shows that vst support in general is trickyTruth be told, the VST/i Support for Ardour on Linux is not only tricky, but quite pointless - Last i tried it, which, admitedly was a few (2-3) years ago, the VSTserver and VST-loader relied on an archaic build of Wine (from before Transgaming forked it to build WineX!)

To further emphasize how archaic VST/i support is, the above mentioned Wine build was the same build required to get the VSTserver and VST-loader to build when I'[d first tried it, way before Ardour even came around!

Essentially, if you've already had a recent wine build, you had to choose between your apps or your VST/i - They have WineASIO now, though, which should aleviate some of the latency issues, though.

Ardour's VST/i interface will load native VST/i just fine though, trouble is that there really aren't many native VST/i for Linux so it's quite pointless.

And under mac vst is possible but there are not so many plugins available,There are plenty of VST/i to go around for OS X, thing is though, that it doesn't really matter- they're mostly all available as AudioUnits components anyway, since OS X has its own plugin interface, as far as I can tell, all the vendors who do support both platforms offer VST for Windows, and AU for OS X.

And Ardour's native OS X release supports Audio Units. so it doesn't really matter if their VST support sucks as much as it does.

Linux is Shit out of luck though, unless people step it up and deliver adequate LADSPA/DSSI-based replacements, though frankly, Linux, thanks to JACK doesn't really need a plugin interface, since audio can be routed from any application to any other application, as long as both support Jack (which is also kind of funny, since Jack on OS X runs as an AU component, and plugs into CoreAudio, all audio applications support JACK by default, making JAck more useful on OS X than on its native platform (Linux), go figure, eh).

On the other side, I totally agree about Jack. I'm quite pleased with Jack, I even use it on OS X (mostly for the sake of routing audio from my digital turntables (which doesn't do VST/AU to an effects rack, when live DJ'ing), and it's quite good.

Funny thing is, I originally installed Jack to try out Ardour - but was very unimpressed with the latter, that's a story for later, though.

from page12 http://www.stefanoforenza.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/studio-free-software-cii-ep-2009-21366-annex.pdf:
"...1) it's clear that, in this moment, a possible massive migration of Institution's workstations towards OSS configuration don't show any functional interest(bold in the original, same applies for the followings)
2) Also on the technical plan, the actual situation is complex because the workstation's setup uses ca. 40 different software. those software are either from Microsoft or are developped to work in a Microsoft environment and all together creates an interlinked, coherent setup.One can define it as levels of multi-layered complexities. That's why, even if the OSS replacement software, taken singularly have in themselves a grown technical interest, an integrated setup (of oss software ndt) requires a big amount of tests and technical configuration.
3) On the financial side(...)it's difficult to estimate the advantages: In fact, if the Microsoft licences(...)costs 6.2M€/year, the OSS price is not zero. In fact, one can suppose that the OSS equivalente (support and maintenance), correspond to 1/3 of the MS licences ost. On this base, it would take 36.7 year to amortise the project's cost..."

for the retarded:
1) OSS doesn't offer better features than MS,
2) OSS lack of organicity requires a lot of work in a similar way as possible in MS,
3)OSS is not that cheap, in reality, even if it's free.

Think about a 40+ tracks mix, in which you have 16 busses for fxs, I mean, you have to open many instances of those software and load the preset file you want... That's not possible in this scenario.

@Horatio_Hellpop
thanks for the fix.
I want to add my point of view of the conclusions of the report in french:
1)EU parlament is not a M$ slave (that's for the FOSStards)
2)LH is damn right in his posts,
3)If the Linux problems would be ALL solved, Linux could easily take a good 20% (at least) of the market share, in the sense that it could be a kind of MacOSX not bound to specific hardware (or not restricted as apple does), or a mixture between MacOSX and Windows (choose what you like) and it could bring really a good, healthy competition in this field.

That's IMO its biggest failure. Unfortunately, with *their* freedom and choice, it comes confusion and lack of responsability, and some people will say: "it's free, what do you want?". Nothing new, BTW, you know the old motto "Divide et impera"? Microsoft doesn't need to do almost anything to win, being the "enemy" (just to continue with the military analogy) already enough divided to be weak. Just compare how slowly MS releases major versions compared to Apple: Apple needs to do that (also on the hardware side), Windows doesn't. Of course, when they release, they have to release something better, even if MS is in the position to release sometimes something not so exciting, as Vista was at the beginning. The "divide et impera" of Linux is not a secret weapon used by FUD-M$ secret agents, paying billions to corrupted politicians, hardware sellers etc. Is part of the current Linux identity, that cannot find a suitable balance between freedom and necessary cohesion.
Democracy is not "everybody should do what they want, I want to be free and I don't care". That's relatively easy to get from a group of people. The real task in which Linux failed (and this is for the young sociologists that use the word "open-source" about everything) is to build something new. They built a half-anarchic, half-religious, half-hyper-selfish system.
Competition brings innovation, and innovation brings a better society (for many reasons, some of them quite well explained in some FSF papers, why not).
But really, to the young (or not so young) linux users attracted by Linux philosophy: please, try to look over the appereance!
I think that even if Microsoft have the power to influence many political decisions (as Nokia did in Finland, Fiat or f***g Mediaset in Italy..., probably every nation has its own case, but Italy is a story apart...), an alternative is possible but cannot be built on a bunch of slogans. A better, innovative and cheaper product will be noticed, to say the least, given enough support (and Linux doesn't lack commercial support, there are a lot of people payed to work to LinuxOS).
The Tesla story (to make an example of the many David/Goliath stories used in Linux circles) is different because the guy was relatively unknown, not protected by a strong institution or society. Don't mix the things. If Linux is in its current state, well, some mentality and some people should be changed asap.
This blog is one of the few places in which you can find a synthesis of all this problems. It's not important if LH will declare his/her real name: there are out there at least 100 big Linux names that should already have said those things loud and the community should do the same.
Or simply it means that many people abandoned a (supposed, I don't believe that) slavery to jump straight to another one, only less funny (unproductive, you can't play DVD or games, you learn bash scripting :-).

It's too late.Yeah, probably, but I didn't use the past tense as a choice, to try to be not sooo negative, as a contribution to the community :-)
Who is going to fix Linux?Not that I want to make it sound as I have the solution in mypocket, I just want them to take their responsability. They are: major distributions, kernel devs, big linux software devs, companies, communities. They should make public calls and letters, polls, even a new manifesto (ie. NLNG: NewLinuxisNotGNU - just DON'T use it to release software but NewLinux actually sounds nice to me), whatever they want. They should have the courage of the kid in "The Emperor's New Clothes" tale. That's probably the biggest step and I'm quite skeptical they'll do it.
How long will it take them?
4 years to create the new structure-model? Maybe less, maybe little more? You know, time is so relative, and changements can be surprisingly fast... I mean, after 20 years, I don't think that 4 years are a big change... life goes on anyway, we are not immortal and such a project shouldn't be tied to the windows 7 release, but should look a little forward, IMO.
How will they catch up to Apple OSX and Windows 7?
They won't. They shouldn't think about that. They should stop saying bullshit, learn from the mistakes, and work on a better, different OS. They should be focused only on solving their issues and start providing something new and innovative but still reasonable. Again, even if it would be the time of Windows 9 or 10, let's say in 2015, who cares, compared to the current failure?
A big project should have a long-distance target, not 2050, but I don't think that in 5 years nobody will have a desktop at home. Anyway, they can pay people to make market research, in order to find a reasonable target. Let's not forget there's also a community...
Who's going to fund it?I think that Linux already receives funds. If they would have the courage of a new step, they surely could get more funds easily.
How reliable will they be in the long run? That's in their interest. If they see the current falling status they will provide the necessary insurances to keep reliability. I mean, they are reliable to the FSF ideas, why they shouldn't do it to a better, working target, especially if there is more money involved?
They could even leave the open-sourceness, at least for the OS. If the system would be unified (to use one word as the solved-issues-word) more and more hardware/software companies would support it. Microsoft would try to stop them? If Linux will reach 10%, maybe MS could make some pressures, surely not now. Anyway, if Linux would reach 10% this would create the premises for other new, maybe smaller hardware/software companies. You know, for a big industry name, there are 10000 smaller industries around them. And Linux is already supported by big companies.

I recently reinstalled my Vista Home Premium [...] and all the VAIO drivers...It took me 8 hours in total from wiping my HD to having a ready-to-use system.

Sony's install routines are dreadful. While I don't have recent experience with every OEM, SONY has to be at least among the worst, if not at the top, when it comes to reinstalling.

I don't have the faintest idea why Windows Update can't finish all this shit in one go.

As far as I am aware, Dell, at least, still gives a generic RTM image with slipstreamed updates and a machine-bound volume license key. You can further slipstream desired software to save the reboots, which is much faster than running Windows Update. I agree it is a pain, but there really isn't a better way to bring 2.5 year old system up to date. OSX isn't any better in this regard, and I'm sure doing something similar with a 2006 release of Ubuntu would be a horror show. But at least there exist mostly free Windows tools to mitigate the issue. There are also tools, at least for XP, that handle the patching and rebooting after the system has been installed, but I have no experience with them.

Wrong, retard. Vista came out when? Early 2007? After that it's all updates and SP.

It's likely his memory is faulty, but Vista was available to businesses 4Q 06. Our business has one of the first VAIOs available with Vista. Reinstalling is horrific, but that was true also with VAIO and XP.

But they should also realize that blindly following a leader can be dangerous, and that at some point it comes a reality check. For example, if I were them, I'd ask to myself: does the bazaar model work? Did the FLOSS philosophy create an environment in which is possible to criticize the philosopy itself? Is it a creative, open environment? Is my desktop OS working well, or I'm trying to resist? Is it worth the effort? The answer can be yes or no, doesn't matter. The same applies for other OSs: can an apple laptop really make me a creative person? If I use Windows does it mean I'm a slave? If I use Linux do I fight the power? (my answer is no to the three lasts...) etc. Or about copyleft, they should ask artists or programmers outside the FLOSS group about what they think about. You know, they should from time to time making to themselves the same questions that they asked when they decided to move to Linux and then decide. If they like it, fine, if they don't, fine. That's freedom. But well, I stopped being a FOSStard few months ago, so I should maybe stfu...

That's the problem: Sony doesn't give media with their equipment, even the business class stuff. You can build your own from the recovery partition, if you can find the option. It's in a different place every VAIO I come across. Now it's in a buried section of Vista's Help & Support (or whatever it's called now). There's no way to decouple the OS from the bundleware, the addition of which makes the install take about four hours. The commenter has a valid complaint against SONY, but, as I said, this doesn't apply to all OEMs.

@May 15, 2009 5:38 PM

Well again, I don't accept what you are saying, because you are either misinformed, or lying. I don't know the command off hand, but in Vista it certainly is possible to build a fully patched vista install DVD from any vista computer... Even your alleged Sony Viao, littered with craplets, that have never bothered me, and I have never had any issues simply using the uninstall command on any computer from any OEM. (although sourcetard software with broken installers is a different issues)

I don't know the command off hand because I simply haven't found myself reinstalling Vista ~ever~. However I googled it for you since you are apparently incapable of that minimal task.

http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/12/23/illustrative-guide-to-create-bootable-iso-image-from-vista-win-image-files/

Maybe you should accept your limits and accept that you are not of help desk caliber (lol) if you haven't figured that out for the entire life cycle of vista.

And assuming you are not an outright fraud, you are clearly ignorant of basic vista maintenance routines, and thus clearly not qualified to give even a minimal opinion on the matter.

I have to remind you I am no tech support maven. I just use computers for a living. Vista is a huge improvement over XP, and anyone who claims otherwise is a liar.

You need a serious dose of red pill, and if you are being honest, you are exhibit A of the damage that fosstards have done in Tech Reporting, and why I have become elminiationist with regards to fosstards.

But once again, fosstards are so frequently dishonest, I have no idea of your status.

You're right in that I'm not qualified in general help desk, at least not any more. I long since moved on from day-to-day system support drudgery. Even were I familiar with this process you've linked, a dodgy process of which I am unsure whether it supports OEM products, this certainly doesn't address the issue that Sony's reinstallation methods are, by any measure, far more cumbersome than competitors'. And I certainly wouldn't expect even the technically inclined VAIO user to learn about and execute such a roundabout method of reimaging his system.

I have no idea why you're so intensely angry at me. All I've done is stated the fact that Sony's imaging methods are lame. I wouldn't think this would be such a controversial declaration.

Many open source software also works in Windows but Windows still lacks a free partition editor like GParted in Linux. XP/Vista's built-in partition editor (found in control panel) lacks functionalities. For example you can't grow the first partition while automatically moving the content of the second partition to later regions. Partition Magic is a powerful and popular program but it's not free. That's why some Windows users use GParted LiveCD to do their maintenance.

For example you can't grow the first partition while automatically moving the content of the second partition to later regions.So you mean that you have to do it in two steps? Not a big deal, IMO.
Anyway, there's a small linux distro containing only maintenance tools: http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page

But you see? Under Windows it happens to say that there's 1 case in which there isn't a free app to do x (but of course there's a commercial, high-quality product and a built-in, working software). Under Linux, obviously no. Should I add that I don't feel bad at all in using linux maintenance tools? Only FOSStards feel bad when they realize they should use Windows for Desktop tools...
So, who gets more freedom of choice?

Just to stay on topic with this blog: Linux is good for maintenance, server, etc. No problem with that.

There actually are free third-party partition editing tools for Windows. Though I haven't used any myself so I can't make any recommendations but you can find them real quick if you search for them.

Also, Microsoft has a CLI partition editor that you can download. I never used it though.

"why you are spending so much energy trying to make Linux look bad"

We aren't. Linux already does that all (looking extremely bad) by itself, and the lintard community is also very, very good at it too. We're just venting and/or laughing about it.

"It took me 8 hours in total from wiping my HD to having a ready-to-use system"

So despite you not knowing how to slipstream a service pack, nor knowing how to download a updated ISO, you still managed to do it all within 8 hours.

"How many reboots do I need to install Ubuntu, enabling proprietary drivers and install all updates?"
Doesn't matter , as you won't get a fully functional ready-to-use system no matter how many full weekends you put in to try to get basic shit half-working (only to see it all go broke in 6 months).

Problem is Linux Hater you claimed to be a Linux Developer at one point. Is it that you see yourself and are pure jealous that you did not think of doing this first. Linux conf and Linux Suxs speech?

Basically Linux Hater you got beat get over yourself. Besides the history of "topic" Suxs speakers at Linux confs is old goes back to the first conf. Linux had to come up at some point as the topic. Just simply it was not you so you are jealous.

Nice bit about something suxs speeches is there will be future ones at confs tracking progress until it no longer suxs any more.

This is progress do none of you here want you problems presented to developers. Notice that the room was over full. You cannot say that developers are not interested in your problems. Basically if you don't want problems presented to developers you are a troll. Even if the developers don't get exactly the issue at least it was presented to them. This will keep on being presented to them until they get it.

Its not like anyone here has got everything right first time. Linux Hater was expecting this of developers when he was laughing at there answers. Are you guys not human? Should we coming and terminating you machines before you can kill us.

If the follows are so dumb that the don't know Linux Haters claimed history and pasted posts it really proves that his is nothing more than a troll home and Linux hater has become the biggest troll of all.

Anyway, here is an explanation of this LH post and, possibly, an answer to your critics:
This is the quality of presentations at LinuxFest NW?Example of the low quality level of many elements in the linux realm: from apps to ads to conferences etc. etc.

you just took my posts and made them and to slides. Do you see anything that says G-P-fucking-L on this pageComment about the typical floss attitude of reinventing the wheel and/or to copy stuff and put a GPL to it (the first being mentioned by Lunduke, BTW, so it's a recursive wheel reinvention...)

Donations for software that doesn’t exist yet? Telling freetards what to do? Means: already said, tried countless times. It didn't work. Better suggest new solutions.

(...)nuh-vidia? OpenSuse build service is...I too, can make myself look smart by surrounding myself with a bunch of freetards.Satyrical comment about the level of the opinions of audience, and to the "I'm smart"-style of the speaker. I should add that LH never tried to look smarter in front of an unprepared person. The previous challenge (search for it) is a good example of the implicit respect he had for this guy, because he explained, point to point, what was wrong in his claims. He didn't humiliate him (you know, this nice linux-forums-hackerish attitude).

does anyone at these open source conference know how to film a presentation? Seriously. I want to see the fucking slides. I don’t want to see your douchebag face for 30 minutes.Comment about the low quality of many open-source related productions.

It was more fun watching you try to get your external monitor working. In fact, your presentation would have been awesome if that’s all you did the whole time.That's a little subtle: LH makes an implicit compliments to Lunduke, noticing that the not working external monitor was the best real example of why "Linux sucks", and that, alone, would have been enough to prove that.

Now a comment to your comment:
Notice that the room was over full. You cannot say that developers are not interested in your problems.
With all the respect to the speaker and the audience, there are other, more important and influent people that should be constantly and seriously worried about the current Linux status.

Maybe in 50 years time, Linux will have something close to equivalent of a poor clone of Win2k-era AD+GPO, sort of.

Linux is "good" for trivial shit like running a LAMP stack (something *anything* can do easily), and even then, the only slight advantage is has there is price (IMO BSD outdoes it there too).

For every server duty, there is a better OS out there. Again, like BSD with m0n0wall and pfSense. Or Oracle on Solaris.

Linux sucks even on the server, that's why it hardly gets used in the enterprise (i.e. anything besides hosting shitty blogs and shitty forums).

You have GOT to be kidding to compare Zimbra/OpenLDAP against Exhange/Active Director.

That's like saying Evolution compares to outlook 2007, or Gimp compares to Photoshop.

This is how I know you are a clueless retard.

Comparing OpenLDAP to ActiveDirectory is like comparing Sendmail to Exchange.

So, no really, I havent gotten high in a long time, will you smoke me up?

What's wrong with OpenLDAP? Like seriously, do you even know what it does?

Yeah, using LDAP to build an alternative to Active Directory is like building a skyscraper out of Legos.

catchpa: sessest. Upon hearing that Windows was sesser than the competition, Linux immediately countered that it was sessest, even though they don't know what it is.

OpenLDAP really isn't that bad, but it's not really an alternative to Active Directory. Notably there doesn't exist a GPO like feature in OpenLDAP. I think there might be a PolicyKit extension out, but I don't know of it's state.

The main difference with AD, is you can completely manage Windows clients, whereas with OpenLDAP, there is no mechanism to centrally control Windows settings like with GPOs.

LINUX FAIL: try again

You're right, but the people who offer it as a counter to Active Directory don't even understand what they're comparing. Active Directory is a product, a ready-to-go out-of-the-box solution to a set of commonly encountered problems. LDAP is a base level tool. It's like saying TCP sockets is equivalent to Apache.

Do YOU even know what it does and doesn't?

Fedora Directory Server integrates with PolicyKit though, and it has a GUI interface that rivials Active Directories Win3.1 inspired interface. The best Directory Server in my opinion is the one that comes with Mac OS X Server, however.

Seriously? That buggy weird thing were you still need to resort to the command-line dscl on a regular basis with broken printer support and nonexistent software management?

Don't get me wrong. It's better than the nothingness that preceded it, but it's a galaxy away from AD.
