Windows Heck, Microsoft really weren't kidding when they said Windows 7 was the fastest-selling operating system in the world. NetApplications released its figures for January 2010, and it seems that after only three months of availability, Microsoft's latest baby has already hit the 10% market share mark.

lol, and yet you still reply, to try and prove me a pariah. If my comments are so unworthy in and of themselves, they need no response, yet you continue to respond.

I know, I'm feeding the troll, I try not to do that usually. You will probably notice that I usually do just ignore your comments, but they have started to get annoying.

I really wish OSNews had a way to ignore users (there are a couple others that I would use it one, but mainly you). OSNews without rockwell would be a much nicer place... I can dream can't I?


Is that your blog? If so, you are even more of an offensive, clueless idiot than I thought.

(I do have to say, some of the posts on LHB are valid but most of them are stupid. I could easily write a Windows Hater's Blog that would make Windows seem like the worst OS ever, but I don't. Because I have better things to do, and I'm a much nicer person than whoever writes that.)

Ah, little freetard, dance, dance, dance.

It's not my blog, but every word of it rings true -- this coming from someone who used to build slackware servers, compiling tons of modules from source, and was a proponent for "linux on the desktop" for quite awhile.

But then I realized what an utter and complete failure it is, and always will be -- on the desktop. Most of the articles and posts on that blog echo the clear truth of that position. But you obviously still suck the toenails of Stallman.

If you can't take the heat, then shut the hell up and quit replying to my "terrible, awful, insulting, big bad internetz bully" comments. You, like all Linux desktop users, drink the kool-aid, but don't realize that Jonestown is just around the corner.

Why can't you debate on merit rather than just insulting people. The insults don't show you as intellectually superior and don't re-inforce your points. In fact it could be argued that it shows emotional immaturity. You'd be doing yourself a favour if you chilled a little - I'd wager it might work better in your personal life too if you think about it a little. No, I'm not trying to insult you, just pointing something out that others can see that perhaps you are blindsided by.

Dude, you are not helping. In some ways I agree with a few of your sentiments. But your delivery lacks credibility because is coarse and vulgar. It lets people ignore what you are saying.

And then what happened? Did Mommy not love you enough? Your Head of IT not hug and appreciate you enough? If you did what you say you did, and knew how to do it correctly, how on earth can you prefer XP over both Slackware and W2K (your other post)?

But then I realized what an utter and complete failure it is, and always will be -- on the desktop. Most of the articles and posts on that blog echo the clear truth of that position. But you obviously still suck the toenails of Stallman.


Hmm, maybe you are the failure. It works extraordinarily well for me on the desktop, apart from Windows gaming of course, but for some old favourites there is dosbox and there are even native linux installers for some games. I have never experienced problems with Slackware due to it's, yes it's a cliche, clean and simple nature. You just gotta know what you're doing.
Stallman has got nothing to do with it. Slackware is not even considered truly free by him as it's taking a more practical approach.

If you can't take the heat, then shut the hell up


And you my friend. Try not to sound so bitter.

Added: that blog you mentioned is actually quite funny. Thanks for the link.
