Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

Would it have been terribly difficult to link to "ZenWalk" for those of us who have never heard of it?


Would it have been so hard to read the second page of the article and use the link provided there?

Should one have read most of the first page and still been left wondering what "ZenWalk" is? The writer failed.

The pagination is silly enough (most multi-part articles here have longer per-page content than this whole article), but not linking to it on the entire first page, much less the abstract/blurb, is just frustrating.

I guess the choice was to mod -1 or say "go f--king google it!1". I can't tell which response would be more idiotic.
