Linux Red Herring interviews Eric Raymond. "Open-source advocate Eric Raymond on winning over the iPod generation, the need for open source to conquer hearts and minds beyond geekdom, and why Linux advocates don't have much time to beat Microsoft." Update by ELQ: Raymond shows signs of once more playing a bigger role in open-source circles. Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols explains this change of strategy in DesktopLinux.com as he knows Raymond personally.

All that proves is that you got lucky.

For example, yesterday I needed an application to read Windows .CHM files on Linux. Why don't you go ahead and try running the Fedora RPMs for xCHM on PCLOS?

I'll check back on you tomorrow night once you've given up and decided to just compile the damn thing ...

I mean are you trying to convince us that you have *never* run into dependency issues with RPM packages before?

This is why new linux users often become dissolutioned, because experienced users try to create an illusion that these issues don't exist.
