gold

http://blogs.adobe.com/open/2011/06/focusing-on-the-next-linux-client.html Opens with:

"Way back in 1999 I predicted a significant market for desktop Linux by 2005. (I was targeting better than Mac OS type numbers, in the 10-15% range.) It was clear back then that Linux had found a substantial adoption as a server OS, and it seemed only time before the desktop adoption rivaled at least “the other desktop”.

I'm continually amazed how schizophrenic "the community" is. They constantly rail against proprietary companies, telling them to get off their platform, and, when they do, "the community" whines about being abandoned. It's like some kid who constantly whines about being able to take care of himself but if you leave the house for 30 minutes he'll call you to complain that he can't manage to make himself a sandwich.

It seems that the unique flavor of Linux that Adobe would support will be Android.

But if we are really beginning a post -pc era with mobile browser growing faster than anything, it makes perfectly sense.

Windows 8 is already there with nice new features (booting in seconds my favorite, not really its Metrosexual UI) and Apple plataform is growing as fire on dry forest, seems that the Linux Desktop just lost its mojo.

Anonymous said...

Don't know that Linux desktop ever really had mojo. As you can see from the graph on that site and plenty of others, it has hung around the 1% range indefinitely. The lost mojo derives from aging tech writers being replaced by a new generation. Non-geeks never wanted anything to do with Linux, save for a 6-12 period during the late 90s and maybe once again when Ubuntu was fresh.

You'd think allocating resources in proportion to market reality would be an obvious concept but these guys still feel "betrayed" even though Adobe even bothers with something that has commanded less than 1% of the market for a protracted period.

Anonymous said...

I must be coming down with something. The comments on that blog post just make me depressed. Are people really that stupid?

(For that matter, as a Mac user is there anything I can do to convince Adobe to discontinue AIR for Mac as well? Everything I've seen which uses it is utter crap.)

Bassboy said...

I am quite honestly surprised that the market share of the Linux desktop has remained stagnant at 1%. I don't really care too much about it, and Linux works great for me.

But, does it mean that over the years Linux usage has never really picked up, despite the coming of netbooks and increase in desktop? It is really sad that all the efforts of OSS community has not really resulted in a tangible share. :(

Anonymous said...

I am quite honestly surprised that the market share of the Linux desktop has remained stagnant at 1%.

Me, too, because that means they've picked users up from somewhere to maintain that baseline. I thought for sure that the advent of the iPhone and console Internetization that Linux would become even more marginalized.

Then again, 1% is squarely within the margin of error and a lot of statcounters seem to equate "Linux" with "Other/Unknown". I have a feeling that Linux usage has indeed declined but since the entirety of its usage is within rounding error it doesn't reflect in graphs.

It is really sad that all the efforts of OSS community has not really resulted in a tangible share.

That's because they've written little worthwhile and what is worthwhile exists for Windows, usually in a more stable, packaged form.

If you mean "sad" as in they've wasted their adult years since the mid-90s then I agree.

Practically all the operating systems and GUIs are the same bloated shitty thing. There are only a few decent software packages (Blender and Firefox being two, although the later has a extremely intrincated architecture).
The good times of software were those when each diskette byte and clock cicle was counted and programmers were forced to think with the fucking head and not to doing crap, using Visual Basic, XML descriptions for GUIs, or generating code out of UML editors or form builders.
I just remember those days of 2003 when I was using that oldy 12 MB RAM, 110 MB hard-disk machine with MS-DOS 6.22 and it worked really fast.
Today, with 2 GB RAM and almost 500 GB in two hard disk i can barely use Windows 7, Ubuntu, Fedora or anything and is sloooow. Horrible, really desperating. Even a text editor takes almost half a minute to load. Adding that the fact which is that my processor is 3 GHz dual-core and all the system draws 400 W from that power outlet. I just can't believe that.

Dear Linux Hater,

I did send you several e-mails about this in the past but they apparently got ignored. I hope that you will read and consider this, in case you actually never got the old e-mails. Or maybe reconsider it, if you did and just ignored them.

Your posts have become very sloppy recently. My blog has been on the cutting edge of new content, and so I think it is time to "pass the baton."

Not all LHB readers like my blog, obviously, but I seriously propose that we set up some sort of mutual link exchange. This would obviously bring "new blood" to my blog and cut down on the trolls here.

I actually used to have a link to Linux Hater's Blog, with a text such as "Tired of using your brains? Relax and hate Linux mindlessly for a while." (or something alone those lines). I would be prepared to bring that back, as well as removing all the banned phrases related to Linux Hater's Blog. In return, I expect you to mention my blog in any new posts. It doesn't need to get heavy "weight" or anything, as long as it is mentioned somewhere in every post and is permanent.

I really think that this would solve a ton of problems and I frankly cannot imagine why you would turn this offer down at this point. Hopefully, you will not. We don't need to like each other. Our two blogs obviously serve completely different needs, and I would very happily get rid of "sloppy" posters who just want to use memes and such. At the same time, I do recognize that there are people with brains commenting on your blog that would be better off on my blog.

Think about it. Nobody would have a reason to hate on either blog if both link to each other, while agreeing to disagree.

Excitedly awaiting your response.

Will Microsoft ever provide a way to completely prevent focus-stealing issue in Windows?

This is one thing that Gnome handles better. Even the Update Manager, when it launches automatically, minimises itself and sits in the taskbar.

Windows XP was a complete twat when you would be in the middle of writing a report, and the automatic update reboot prompt popped up in focus and selected Restart when you press space. Windows 7 is also annoying in that if you keep ignoring it, it eventually gives you a countdown timer of 15 minutes after which it WILL reboot without you confirming anything.

Microsoft, like the freetards, seem incapable of fixing certain longstanding annoyances.

You're the one that claimed this behavior doesn't exist. Now that it's been shown that it obviously does you're shifting goalposts into some sort of WorksForMe(TM) by shoving in some caveat that default behavior needs to be changed. No shit, we all know this can be disabled or worked around if we cared to but the fact of the matter is that if you do nothing with respect to applying updates you will get this dialog eventually. Bold assertion that anyone but you is failing it with such a weak train of logic.

Anonymous said...

" to but the fact of the matter is that if you do nothing with respect to applying updates you will get this dialog eventually."

False. I've left the prompt up for days with no forced auto reboot. The only times it will autoreboots is if you enable the behavior as it does not do that by default. And seriously as that source says its only a few updates of windows update itself that trigger the behavior if you set it to auto update. Boo-fucking-hoo

Anonymous said...

WorksForMe(TM)

If you "shut down" your laptop by closing the lid you'll never apply updates unless prompted. Unfortunately, there's no intermediate dialog, outside of a balloon message that probably displays once, generated by an icon that is automatically hidden by the notification area manager unless you change default settings. If you miss that balloon message (or dismiss it because you don't have time right now and forget to followup), the next dialog you see will be your computer shutting down in 15 minutes.

Microsoft assumed that everybody would control shutdown of their computers through the start menu, and that's not universal. Also fuck knows why they'd set Windows Update to hide instead of making it blink or hop around like a Mac OS program. It's actually a regression from XP because with that there was a bright, high contrast, intimidating icon. Even if Windows Update is visible in Vista/7, the icon is so bland the user won't associate it with "this is important".

Here's the dialog in XP:

Yeah, right, given the choice between Win7 and an Unity desktop, XP veterans will chose the latter..

And by the way, so he is saying that Linux Desktop is only comparable to an 10 year old OS?

That's not a good thing to say..

Anyone noticed the stallman mug shot?

Busted for his illegal office copy!

Oh wow.

Click on his picture to enlarge it.

Scary. He looks as if he's on the brink of death.

I find it quite bizarre when freetards ridicule Ballmer and his looks (like on the youtube comments on the "developers" video) but at the same time don't notice how their hero looks and behaves like.

Yeah, he looks like the type of guy who quietly moves in next door and suddenly all of the neighborhood pets start disappearing and children start coming home with reports of being touched inappropriately by the "scarey man".

Linux PSA said...

A recent study published in the journal Pediatrics indicates that allowing 4-year-olds to use desktop Linux for even a few minutes can give them short-term attention and learning problems.

Stallman:

Google has complied with the requirements of the GNU General Public License for Linux, but the Apache license on the rest of Android does not require source release. Google has said it will never publish the source code of Android 3.0 (aside from Linux), even though executables have been released to the public. Android 3.1 source code is also being withheld. Thus, Android 3, apart from Linux, is non-free software, pure and simple.

Someone tell Poggy.

As much as I love to criticize the bearded one, at least he stands true to his principles, most of the time at least.

Poggy on the othe hand is much simpler.

Google has affected innovation in positive ways. Android has sparked new innovation in mobile devices, while our web browser, Chrome, helped jump-start innovation in the stagnant browser space.

Rewriting history, huh? Firefox started the new browser race. And it was the iphone that sparked the new mobile woohaa.

Google’s programming tools have allowed new businesses to be created. For example, a business called MapMyRun.com allows you to track your running routes, utilizing Google Maps to power its service.

By the same logic, Microsoft and Apple have created millions of businesses with their APIs and programming tools.

I really want to stay neutral on faceless corps, but dang is Google full of themselves.

Almost every search engine worked along these lines, long before Google existed even. Except maybe for the Pagerank thing (though, it seems all it does today is highlighting Wikipedia).

Mozilla's income comes almost entirely from Google.

Now that Goog has its own browser, I guess they have issued the order that Firefox should be made as unattractive as possible to lure people to Chrome.

After this is done, the most important Mozilla people will move to Google.

This or the Mozilla people just went crazy.

Ray Ozzie - a NAZI who is popular of saying "Kill the baby, rape the

rather Citizen of such filthy demonic nation.


Then there is Craig Mundie who is was hell bent hating colored people. Durning party Craig Mundie and Ray Ozzie drop their trousers, bent over, and let fly with a shower of semi-liquid feces, spattering the unsuspecting colored girls - before they are killed.

Yeah, the guy may be heavy but he's highly energetic and really nowhere near as fat or unhealthy looking as Stallman despite the two being about three years apart in age.

Ellison kicks both their asses, though. They should get him to be the Dos Equis guy. Stay thirsty my friends.

There is a very known Penny Arcade comic from that time.

Ballmer does it right compared to Stallman. Instead of awkwardly shuffling around in the back row, pretending to be "tech hip" with a bunch of undergrads on some college lawn, Ballmer sprints onto stage as the centerpiece, screaming like a mad man, shouting "GIVE IT UP! GIVE IT UP FOR ME! WHO SAID SIT DOWN?!"

All the Google videos are extremely patronising.

It also seems that all the people who guide through them or narrate them have snotty voices to boot.

I also can't stand the style, the drawn lines to point out simple things or captions like "this is the "expert guy"". As if the viewers are total retards.

You know, I think Ballmer is crazy.

In opposite to Stallman, he is "positively" crazy though.

I watched once a interview with him, he was totally energetic even though the questions were totally boring. Almost as if he's on Ecstacy 24/7.

RMS on the other hand is depressed and hateful and his crazyness boosts it even more.

That's because Steve Ballmer does speedballs off the ass cracks of hookers whilst laying on piles on money. Stallman on the other hand plays with the fleas in his pubes while fucking his fleshlight.
