Three Reasons to Buy an Open PC

1. It's entirely free.
2. It just works.
3. Support is included.

Prices starting at $249 in US. Now, get off your hatertard ass and go buy one!

Clusterfuck is right. I can imagine small insignificant cannibal ants biting each others head off.

At least Dave Neary concedes that GNOME needs a dictator, and that IRC conversations while sitting in your mom's basement just doesn't cut it if you ever plan on building something useful.

Oh, and I am sure the guy above me is a bot.

Just for the sake of replying to that bot though, openPC is broken by design, in the sense that they expect a KDE desktop to run smoothly on an intel atom processor with 1GB of RAM.

Seems to work for several other projects. Python refers to it's creator as the Benevolent Dictator for Life. He reviews PEPs (python enhancement proposals) that people write, then accepts or rejects them giving very clear reasoning.

When it has worked, the dictator is always the main author and active contributor.

Regretting that a project doesn't have a 'dictator' is really regret that the project has been reactionary ever since it was founded.

When a project is founded for all the wrong reasons, organizational problems like this flow like a river of fail

I don't get what the hissy fit is for.

Gnome didn't want Canonical's help for Gnome Shell. Gnome expects everyone to work on Gnome.

Canonical wasn't happy with the direction Gnome was moving in, and Shuttlecock views it as a Red Hat project, so he figures, hey, It's free software, let's fork it!

Now Gnome has their panties in a bunch because Canonical forked their project and they crying bloody murder about how it's a ploy to differentiate Ubuntu from the rest of the pack and not give back to the upstream, because the upstream didn't want their changes.

And this whole "relationship with Gnome and KDE" bit is just as mind boggling. What relationship? Why should there be one? Gnome exists to oppose KDE. Gnome won't provide Canonical with that they want, nor let Canonical push development in that direction.

Regardless of how horrid Unity is this is just absurd. You're competing projects for fuck's sake, start acting like it. Cooperate on shit that calls for it, and do your own thing elsewhere instead of throwing a fit every time shit doesn't go your way.

Don't want people forking your project? Don't GPL it. It's as much about working together as it is about allowing people to clone your ball when you take it and go home.

At worst, Gnome and Cononical can continue to mutually work on the Gnome libraries that sit under both Gnome Shell and Unity.

So what if Shuttlecock is doing his own thing or if he's trying to set Ubuntu apart from the rest. It's about fucking time someone does that beyong offering different package management. respect to ±Shuttlecock for having a pair, and for doing away with X finally, and for trying at least, to have Canonical act like what it is, a company looking for profit.

It's hard to offer a unique product and make money off it if you have to offer exactly the same as everyone else, you're going to have to fork and take on development at some point or another.

Aside from Ubuntu and Unity being a steaming pile of turd, +1 to Canonical from straying from the pack. Better to be your own turd, than one of many in a turn pile.

Fragmentation can actually work in their favour if they build a sufficiently appealing walled garden around it.

Except Canonical will not be able to build a good DE like GNOME or KDE. They just don't have the resources, and the Linux community is ostracized against them.

They have not forked GNOME yet, they are just building a shell on an older version of GNOME.

Didn't Shuttlecock say something about nixing X for Weyland at some point?

You still gotta make sure stuff works if you're going to make a switch like that. Note that by "work" by mean "work" by Ubuntu standards.

Except Canonical will not be able to build a good DE like GNOME or KDE.

I wouldn't go so far as to call either Gnome or KDE* particularly good. Better than Unity, sure.**

* = great framework, not so great DE.
** = they don't really need to build a new DE themselves, they can keep building Unity on top of Gnome, which will probably piss off Gnome more, but there's a time when you have to stop giving a shit.

They just don't have the resources,

They have as many resources as Shuttlecock feels the need to feed into Canonical.

and the Linux community is ostracized against them.

"has ostracized them" would be more proper, but that's exactly why they have to take on their development themselves.

If you're going to back down from what you want to do with your project because Gnome and KDE don;t want to move in that direction, you might as well step down.

Let the community be pissed off, they're never happy about anything to begin with, and nothing Canonical has done really deserves the shit storm they're in the middle of.

+1 to Shuttlecock, again, for having the balls to do his own thing instead of consigning Canonical to mediocrity by being to scared to offend "the community". If he fails utterly, fine at least he did it his own way and failed.

For fuck's sake we're talking about a community that ostracized Novell for daring to try protecting their customers. You're not going to go far by catering to them.

Anonymous said...

That's not really an issue of resources, but an issue of trying to bet the farm on a market that doesn't pay for software, no matter how valuable it may be.

Corel had the mind to pull out at least, when they realized that there is no money to be make by giving your corwn jewels away or by targeting the Linux desktop.

It's the same reason Red Hat pulled out of the desktop market (Fedora is just a testbed for RHEL and not supported).

There' only one feasible way to make cash in the Linux world: Ignore the desktop, target enterprises, and charge for support contracts, hoping to any god that might be listening that someone like Oracle isn't going to come along and undercut you on your only income stream.

Shuttleworth will soon realise that trying to build a company on desktop Linux is an act of futility. Nevertheless +1 to him for trying.

How can you build a walled garden on FOSS principles?

RMS even opposes having a 'wheel' group for su.

Sometimes a few of the users try to hold total power over all the rest.

Like the owner of the machine having power over the users of the machine. It's called System Administration.

Anonymous said...

Who said anything about "principals". Screw the "spirit" of the GPL.

Build on the code. Just like Apple built on BSD and XNU. Granted the BSD license does not force derivative works to be under the same license, who says your framework on top of Linux has to be a derivative work?

Or, as mentioned in the Gimp discussion under the previous entry, they can foot the bill for the Pantone and Hexachrome systems and build around that. No other Linux distributor will do that, nor chance invoking the ire of the "commnunity" or FSF for doing so.

Canonical already has.

I'm not a fan of Linux, and even less of Ubuntu, but I'd be refreshing at least to see a "F/OSS" company start actually behaving like a company and try giving itself a competitive advantage to leverage.

I'm not saying that they'll think of doing something like the above, or go that far, or succeed even if they did, but it's nice to see someone diverging even somewhat from the group-think and collectively steaming turd-pile of mediocrity.

Anonymous said...

Canonical. To build a desktop OS that can compete with Windows/Mac that is open source. There's the problem.

If Shuttleworth wanted to be in the operating system business, he should have bought Be Inc or licensed OS/2.

Which doesn't stop either of the above options, or variants thereof.

Again, Apple's kernel and base system are both open source (but not free software - free software is a problem (but there are ways around it) open source is not) - anyone can take XNU or Darwin and do as they please with it, while a solid foundation, that's not the useful part of the system.

Build something on top of that that differentiates you from the SteamingTurdPileOfMediocrity(tm), and build yourself a walled garden on top of it. Hell, you can even open source everything that runs on top of that core (if it is, for example, a framework) and it won't mean jack shit because it's useless without the core, but you're still "playing nice".

Let's say they go with the licensing Pantone route, and build up around that, say by building up on Gimp. Even if the competition can fork the shit out of your work, they can't do anything with it without licensing Pantone themselves, which they wont. (more ideal would be to buy out Pixel editor, and sell it but meh)

And now you have a foundation to build at least a windowed garden around.

Or they could license h.264 and do the same, and not just stop at playback, but cover the editing aspect too, fork the work on top of it as much as you want, it's useless without the license.

Granted both are niche markets, but they're niche markets willing to pay for shit. And that's the fundamental problem with catering the the Linux "community" They don't pay for software, the solution is to look outside the community.

The limitations of the GPL can be worked around if you have the balls to tell the FSF to go fuck themselves, a little lock-in goes a long way.

The community will hate you for it, but they're not the ones putting a roof over your head or feeding your family, fuck 'em.

Anonymous said...

There is much wisdom in the post above me.
Apple understood open source on desktop well, I hope shuttleworth does too. The problem is if he goes that route, he will need to fill a niche that isn't already done by either of the other OSes, or it needs to be free.

It would make for a better OS. But then it's no longer open source.

And it basically becomes another proprietary OS. Not what shuttleworth wants anyway. He wants it to be OSS.

BeOS was in a much stronger position in the 90's to do what shuttleworth is trying to do now. And they still failed, even without having to deal with FOSS crap.

Lessons learned:

7. For people to work together, they need to be in the same place

Probably the next lesson they learn is that software has to have a price tag and developers have to be paid well, not just the lawyers. FOSS is just so ridiculous its not funny anymore.

TM Repository said...

7. For people to work together, they need to be in the same place

I disagree about being in the same physical location; My business partner and I do good work and live over 5 hours apart by car. We telecommute using skype, Campfire, email, Fogbugz, Google Docs, a shared calendar and such. What all this adds up to is that we're always on the same page, aware of what the other is doing.

The problem with many FOSS projects is how poorly they're organized. They may use some of the same tools, but don't take the time to plan or communicate. This is because most contributors just want to get in there and hack some code. Planning is boring, they see this as an opportunity to show how leet they are by bypassing the boring stages...and it fails spectacularly when any complexity is introduced.

Sure it is! Everything is open except in the case of the example above, the Pantone and H.264 libraries, and/or the framework. Everything above and below the foundation of the "windowed garden" is complately open and can be forked to your heart's content.

Shuttlecock has tried to do it before, Launchpad (and perhaps a few other things, that I cannot recall OToH) started life as a proprietary platform. He just didn't have the balls then to stick up to the community when they cried for it to be opened up.

The community has already ostracized Canonical, so there's nothing to lose at this point by pissing a few people who, quite frankly, don't mean jack shit.

What are they going to do? Boycott Canonical? Unlikely, you'll find that outside the FSF, GNU/Freedom is just a talking point, it's more about Linux than it is about anything else. That's why Sun was chastised for going open, there was no way to poach CDDL tech and bring it to Linux, without making it useless (see ZFS over FUSE).

And even if they do boycott Canonical, does it matter? Cannonical is a business. The freetards not only are not putting a roof over anyone's head or feeding anyone, they out to make it as difficult as possible to do so. They aren't important, and shouldn't be the core market anyway, simply because a market, by definition involves the changing hands of currency. Again, fuck 'em. They're not who you, as a business, want to keep happy.

And even if they do walk away, what are they going to do, walk away from everything Canonical builds on top of? (Kernel, Gnome, everything they package?) Have RMS draw up a GPLv4 with n anti-Canonical clause that nobody in their right mind would adopt and/or kill off FOSS altogether? It's win-win.

BeOS was in a much stronger position in the 90's to do what shuttleworth is trying to do now. And they still failed, even without having to deal with FOSS crap

BeOS initially required Apple hardware to run, it was DoA. And it was doomed to failure from the beginning. the business plan was to sell out to Apple eventually.

I'm not saying any of this would work successfully, I'm just saying that if you want to go the Linux route, as a business, that's the way to do it.

Apple is a hardware company. And very little all of their software is open source anyways.

Very little of their hardware was ever really Apple made. They're in the business of selling integrated solutions.

But that's the the point, Apple was an example of how to use open source to your advantage. The whole foundation of their OS is open source, but the core components, around which they build their walled garden isn't. And that's how you differentiate yourself from the pack. The point is that Darwin and XNU aren't exactly useful without Cocoa on top, not to mention the open source Cocoa implementation is at least a decade behind.

Let's be honest here: FOSS people are not the most social of beings.

That's part of my point, ignore the crackpots, rhetoric and stupid inter project politics and you're theoretically good to go.

Anonymous said...

What would Shuttleman put in his 'walled garden' anyways that isn't everywhere else?

I'm just playing devil's advocate here. Personally, I think Linux is a lost cause. The contents of the Walled/Windowed garden doesn;t have to be unique, Apple's desktop walled garden isn't either (The titles are exclusive, but they're analogues for stuff that's available elsewhere, some better (FCP, Logic) some wnot so much (Aperture) some roughly equivalent (Shake)).

There isn't much need for yet another general purpose desktop system, Windows and OSX has that market covered. But there are niche markets to consider. I'd be lying if I said I don't long for another IRIX. A special purpose media-centric OS would definitely be intriguing, as well as commercially viable.

Pantone and Hexachrome would be something worth considering, as I said, Pixel would be more ideal that Gimp, from a business perspective it is far, far ahead of Gimp, and as a one man show, could easily stand to cost substantially less than bringing Gimp up to speed.

They could license H.264 and take it to the editing end and test those waters. People will pay for a good video editor.

But there are a lot of possibilities besides that. Working with NVIDIA for example, instead of against them to provide high performance video is another thing that would set a given distro apart, and build around that, taking advantage of say, a Maya/XSI port already existing and that XFS already exists and already has 2 decades of optimizing it for that precise workflow. They could court AVID, who has been hurting on the market lately, as well.

Licensing the VST SDK from Steinberg (which is freely available, but cannot be distributed) is another option, build a framework around that which allows people to bring their VST/i plugins with them and you've got another windowed garden opportunity, jackd is already quite competent at what it does, it just needs some work, and dump ALSA for the vastly better OSS4. Work with AVID (who owns DigiDesgn and M-AUDIO) to provide high performance audio.

What media professional wouldn't be intrigued by the idea of a dedicated multimedia workstation? It's one of the few niches that hasn't been addressed, and while not a huge market by any means, it's a market that doesn't mind paying a premium for a good product.

None of this will happen, of course. But I wouldn't object to being proved wrong.

Agree that Shuttleworth is fighting the last war. Whether or not desktops and servers are losing relevance, the fact is they are saturated. The only way to break in is to execute a flawless strategy, but, as has been said, the barriers are much lower in emerging, but related, segments, e.g. mobile & cloud. Maybe these ventures would be total failure, but they still have more upside than going head-to-head against Windows and Mac OS.

The chance to be profitable with this any time soon is extremely small, but so is it with Desktop Linux too. But if you're going to waste money, building rocket prototypes must be a lot more fun than building Linux distris.

How about some real, advanced home automation system?

The ones I see installed are usually in very expensive houses and limited in functionality/scope. Yeah, just checking the temperature, turning off lights, changing music tracks. Boring stuff.

How about automatic shutdown of unnecessary electronics when not in use (like TVs); sensing where people are and turning off lights where it's not needed (optional, but could be nice to save energy); cooking recipes directly in the kitchen without using a netbook; checking what's missing in the fridge and providing simple ways to print a shopping list or order food directly; better temperature control, to cool down or heat up the most used rooms during certain periods, and adjusting automatically when there are more or less people in the house (more people = more heat).

There's so much more that can be automated, and it doesn't need to cost tens of thousands of euros to do it.

Whenever I turn my PC on most of the stuff is automated, and I can just think about getting stuff done. Still, when I get home I have to micromanage everything by myself. I would have to do it anyway even with ultra expensive, modern automation systems because those do jack shit in that sense. I want to be able to get home and relax, and not spend millions to do just that.

Or they could license h.264 and do the same, and not just stop at playback, but cover the editing aspect too, fork the work on top of it as much as you want, it's useless without the license.

Spittlecock has already licensed h.264

(more ideal would be to buy out Pixel editor, and sell it but meh)

Or get them to sell Pixel in the Software Centre and take a cut of the sales.

the barriers are much lower in emerging, but related, segments, e.g. mobile & cloud. Maybe these ventures would be total failure, but they still have more upside than going head-to-head against Windows and Mac OS.

Which is what Spittlecock is already doing.

Seriously though, isn't the whole point of the hater culture that we DON'T hold people up as being above criticism? This whole "defend jerkface" crap is reminiscent of freetards with RMS. We rightfully laughed out the last person who tried to claim rockstar status amongst us haters and we should be doing the same with jerkface instead of people like dr loser trying to deify him. Dr Loser did the same thing when I pointed out here the stupid 7 = Vista SP2 thing that Jerkface was posting and he twisted that around as if I was a Linux defender or something. It was bizarre.

The advertising from Microsoft seems to be related more to connecting to your own desktop remotely than anything "server" related.

Wow. That's new to me. Everyone else has been using it as a term for putting stuff on the intarweb, or outsourcing the data centre to someobody else datacentre, or really doing anything remotely.

Now it's a buzzword for running network services on your home computer? And I thought the "cloud" couldn't get any more retarded.


There's so much more that can be automated, and it doesn't need to cost tens of thousands of euros to do it.

Many of the things you describe would require real time. General purpose OSes don't do that, that' part of why it tends to cost a pretty penny. You'd be amazed at what it takes from a system perspective to make a thermostat or traffic light work reliably.

Spittlecock has already licensed h.264

It's a start, but is he doing anything else with it?

Or get them to sell Pixel in the Software Centre and take a cut of the sales.

That doesn't really address the problem of the core market not being the paying for software type, and it's why it's doomed to fail. They don;t go all the way, just settle for some shitty nonsensical half way point.

How does this differentiate Ubuntu from the SteamingTurdPileOfMediocrity(tm)? There's quite a big difference between licensing some tech requisite by a market, and building around it, and taking something that's already available for Linux and putting it in an app store.

You're still targeting 'Ubuntu users' who generally don;t pay for software, and you're not really offering anything different that anything else, you're not even ensuring that it doesn't break between updates!

They'll talk about "tough decisions" reffering to changing the look of scroll bars or which side of the window the buttons go on, but when it comes to the hard business decisions, it apparently always comes down to doing the least required effort with no long term plan whatsoever.

Or get them to sell Pixel in the Software Centre and take a cut of the sales.

Oh hang on, I forgot...

What sales?


Exactly. Having a store doesn't necessarily translate into sales and adding a product to it doesn't mean people who didn't buy it before are going to magically start buying it because it's featured in a store integrated into a desktop system that is installed by a group that doesn't pay for software.

The whole rationale seems to be "but it works for Apple" without even thinking about the complete different markets they cater to and the implementations. The appStore works because it's the only way to get apps without jailbreaking, it also works because the target market isn't adverse to buying software.

There's a complete inability to think outside the box on Linux circles, only to copy poorly. They keep talking about adding things that would appeal to "normal" users (meaning not them) without ever bothering make the underlying system appealing to normal users, understanding what a normal user is, and operating under the false notion that the desktop is a solved system.

All the while, they'll contune to cater to people who are the opposite of "normal users" while trying to appeal to "normal users".

Of course you can't alienate the freetards (or can you) because that's the userbase and there's no effort to court the "normal users" they obsess over.

It's a clusterfuck within a clusterfuck within a clusterfuck. That's what Linux is, a fucking InceptionOfClusterfucks(tm).

That started 20 years ago. AOL is cloud, btw.

Eventhou website like sales force is just 1 of the app on the net, but it isnt just that.

Of course it is.

Look @ html5, upcoming Chrome OS.

What do you imagine html5 runs on? What do you think ChromeOS connects to?

Chrome Browser was beginning of "cloud computing" running "RIGHT" on client side.

So, cloud computing is browsers now. Didn't Mosaic start that, oh, 20 years ago?

Example gmail!, isnt it "cloud computing" email done right?

It's generic webmail. Webmail is cloud. How the fuck do you think it works? The magic mail pixies receive your letters up in the heavens? You connect to a fucking server, you dipshit.

How about Google spreadsheet, does sharing spreadsheet "LIVE" online ring the "CLOUD COMPUTING" bell????

How about time sharing. Grid Computing? Networking? Does that ring a bell? Same principal.

The whole reason we adopted TCP/IP was to do "cloud" computing. It's the fucking network. People are such dipshits it's mind boggling.

Really, Oracle scared of the cloud? Where do you think p"cloud" providers run, who do you think provides them with their databases (#1 on the RDBMS market), the hardware (#4 server vendor) or the middleware (top 3)?

There are people actually calling the death of Cisco at the hands of the cloud. CISCO! These people are batshit insane.

Yes. And as sad as it is, baring Corel PhotoPaint 9, Pixel is the best, most feature-complete raster editor available for Linux.

That being said, it would cost less to buy out and develop than it would to bring Gimp or Krita up to speed. That's how sad the state of graphics is in Linux.

I'm not saying it's omg insta commercial viability lol, just that even as single step it's more sensible than the OSX/iOS-wannbe-abortion going on.

Wait, why is anon-tard so mad that some people are referring to it as cloud and not servers?

It's about the hype around cloud computing and the talk about how networked computers are going to somehow kill off... Networked computers. Think of how retarded that is, for a moment.

Or how "cloud" is somehow and "emerging market". I don't care what people call it, though I am bothered by hyping it as some form of new tech, or anything but a marketing gimmick. It's the sae as the Ahax web 2.0 revolution except on a much larger scale of retardation.

That's absurd. Silicon Graphics itself couldn't make Linux into a high end multimedia platform. There's no reason to believe Canonical or "a few hackers" can.

I too, would welcome another IRIX, but Linux just isn't it. Not in ay reasonable time frame anyway, you don't build a special purpose system on a general purpose foundation.

"A few hackers" won't cut it, you need a whole team of paid, professional developers who know what they're doing for that kind of endeavor. You need system designers and engineers for that sort of thing.

And Applications? "A few hackers" have had nearly 20 years to put together something even remotely comparable to AVID, FCP, Nuendo, Live, Logic, Shake, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Maya, ect, etc, etc. It hasn't happened. Not even close.

Or get VxWorks on embedded systems if you have a lot of money.

Cisco via Linksys has proved that given sufficient volume, VxWorks is more cost effective than Linux (owning to allowing you to cut down on hardware and that it's a special purpose system).

The funny thing, queefer, is that we haters have never really even suggested that we hold any sort of a unified front, or that we necessarily agree on everything, or that we even strictly get along.

We're not freetards trying to pretend to be part of some sort of wannabe movement, with all that stupid little insignificant internal politickin' where everyone is scared shitless to offend anyone else, and constantly need to reaffirm that all is fine and dandy and we still hold some unified front on some cause that we won't admit that nobody actually agreed on the interpretation.

Yeah, we argue amongst ourselves, because nobody is above criticism, nobody is above being told they're wrong, and nobody is above being called out, and since we're human beings, it's generally expected for there to be differences of opinion.

Not bad, really. Outside of leased fiber lines, which cost thousands monthly, that kind of bandwidth just isn't available in the States. But, if it was, it'd cost at least that much. In fact, if a plan like this were available at the "consumer" and small business level, I bet it would probably cost at least $500 (€360), and I think I'm lowballing it. Additionally, providers here don't upgrade your cap when you upgrade your service so your 360 Mbit connection could be terminated after consuming 100 GB, which would take 37 minutes at full capacity, lol.

Jerkface is trying to weasel around a set of de facto standards we've implicitly worked out by saying he's not associated with the Linux hating subculture, but that contradicts his being the #1 "named" LH poster at one point and his fleecing feedback and commitments for his own venture. Maybe it's a whole reverse-troll thing and he leveraged then cast off "the community" in GPL style, but I'd ask what the point would be.

In any case, I agree with him on some things but not others. Most people who visit his blog seem to be of the same mind. This wasn't an issue until recently. When he started deleting stuff he suddenly gained lackeys (or maybe they were just dormant prior). Jerkface's skin isn't nearly as thick as he wants to represent. I think the lackeys detect that and jump in.

Most participants in this subculture are decidedly anti-celebrity (thus the never ending barrage of Anonymous comments) but "named" commenters still manage to gain undue credibility. Arguments are much better when everybody is anonymous. You lose the cohesive factor (am I really replying to the same guy?) but gain the ability to rely solely on argument, rather than politics.

LinuxFullySupportsAllHardware(TM) said...

I'm in the market for a new laptop and what brings me joy are all the disappointed Linux users who are locked out of using Optimus, which is NVIDIA's dynamic GPU switching technology.

Optimus support means you'll use the low power Sandy Bridge IGP most of the time but when a game is fired up (or something else that extensively uses DirectX or some HDMI features) it automatically switches to NVIDIA graphics that consume more power but offer better performance as well. So it's like the best of both worlds when it comes to graphics and heat/battery, though Optimus is offered only with low-to-mid discrete options at the moment.

Anyway, the only thing about this setup Linux users can take advantage of is Sandy Bridge IGP and (maybe) CUDA. The best part? NVIDIA has no plans whatsoever to improve the situation. That's because X.org/DRI doesn't actually support anything close to GPU switching:

It is clear in that thread as to who the real jerkface is.

I agree that "04003209021321376952" is likely the real Jerkface but it's not like the claim is incontestable. Maybe if someone did some research on earlier postings but seeing how there are two jerkface accounts not in current use the door is open to speculation.

However, the "real" Jerface's profile is ironic:

"don't have a blog. As if I would use the binary garbage that is blogger.com."

LOL.

This was my biggest problem with linsux, dr losers blog and SoC.. having to be a 'named hater'.

Would it help if I added the ability to post anonymously? Or, at least, without displaying your account name?

The issue I have with opening it up is that it becomes very difficult to throttle spammers.

I need a new terminal emulator for cmd.exe not PowerShell.

Besides the Powershell "shell" looks more like an IDE. I don't need that. I just want something simple that supports tabs and resizing.

I smelled it right when he asked a command line question on Windows. Only freetards use the command line.

Angry Tux (C++) is waiting on 'drawings from a friend'.

Angry Tux (Python) are deciding the icon for the sourceforge account, and version control.

So much serious. So much business.

So Adam "Queefer" King,

Why are you accusing other people of being yourself? It's so obvious. You are trying to make us look mentally handicapped, but it won't work. Give it up queefer boy.
