Legal It's time for bed over here, but before I turn in with a nice cup of tea and a Gilmore Girls episode, we've got some good news for you: SCO has been dealt yet another major blow in its baseless lawsuit against Novell. A jury has ruled that Novell owns the UNIX copyrights - not SCO.

GNU/Linux has the problem of having inconsistent documentation, breaking drivers (that did work) and reinventing the wheel (ALSA, PulseAudio) when there are already good software that could have been built upon.

*yawn*. Why do the *BSD guys keep on bugging the Linux community all the time? If *BSD was really that much superior that BSD fanboys claim it is, why the hell are over 90% of worlds fastest computers (top500.org) running Linux? Do you think, the people who set up those clusters are rookies? Why is Google running Linux? Why does CERN run Linux (I saw the machines myself there)?

I tested *BSD several times and different versions. And let alone the FreeBSD installer made me vomit. It's centuries beyond debian-installer and I won't even talk about the package management here.

The Linux kernel is the largest software project in the world and it is the operating system which supports the most architectures (source: Greg-Kroah Hartman during his talk @FOSDEM 2010).

Why can't those *BSD guys just stop bitching around and just try to be better instead of telling people that Linux is crap? It's just really annoying that so many *BSD people keep on telling us that they have the better solution.

And seriously. If you ever *had* used PulseAudio you would knew that it is just not another audio stack. PulseAudio is a powerful set of daemons and utilities that make using modern audio hardware just fun. It's so easy to use bluetooth audio, re-direct audio input/output to other machines on the network and much much more. PulseAudio ROCKS.


It very much the attitude of one of the software engineers at our place .. completely rewrite something from scratch because you don't like how some else has done it even thought it work.

Yeah, and re-writing a lot of GNU tools from scratch just for the sake of having the tools covered by a BSD licence is not re-inventing the wheel then?
