BeOS & Derivatives "FalterCon 2007 took place on August 11, and it went quite well (IMHO, of course). Here I would like to share my personal impressions of the event, as well as make a few (somewhat) related observations. When the news of the WalterCon cancellation broke out and I read about some people being left with non-refundable air tickets, my first reaction was 'OK, let's do something with these guys'. A few emails later with Mike Summers, Bryan Varner and Urias, we had decided on having a community gathering which, as many of you know, was to later be called FalterCon (yes, pun intended). In approximately two weeks, we found a venue (and a good one!), had this website running, prepared some nice promo material, and were able to gather nine people willing to attend. All in all, I think we did pretty well given the very little time we had."

Good god.

Lets argue over petty SHIT for 40+ comments.

Grow up already!

But I'll deal with Bryan V and the like ;) I've known him for a few years now. hehe

oh, also, Bryans first post was obviously meant to be humorous and a jab at the people. *I* f--king do that all the time to everyone. grow some humor bones!

anyways... I'm in a bad mood. I shouldn't comment when I'm in a bad mood ^_^

"Bryans first post was obviously meant to be humorous and a jab at the people."

The jab at Linux folks was sorta lame though. Not really funny at all.
Then again, a lot of BeOS folks seems to have an irrational aversion towards Linux. I dont really know why. Maybe because Linux has succeeded while BeOS failed completely.

Oh, come on now! That was really uncalled for... I am a Linux nerd by many accounts (at least, my closest friends and wife seem to think so) and I laughed a lot when I read Brianīs humorous post about the social ineptitude of some Linux users that were there. Hell... I do that all the time, too.

Some of you guys really need to grow a thicker skin!

I'm not sure who needs more help... The people who bicker on end over this petty SHIT, or the lurkers like me who keep reading page after page.

It's like Soap Opera for nerds.

Heh, best comment so far. I keep thinking "why am I reading this?". I should really be coding instead.

I guess sometimes you just need a break.
