FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

I think the point he is making is that brain dead people with jobs that drain the life out of them aren't interested in learning anything about an OS. So they buy Windows boxes from him, and the MS ecosystem allows their Win98, WinXP, etc. systems to limp along for about 10 years after the product should have died. There's definitely money in that, if you know how to extract it.

I don't think he's talking about people who would like Mint, else they'd have found it themselves.

Isn't that a bit harsh? Just because they have other priorities in life, doesn't make them braindead.

Below a certain level of weekly sleep, self-esteem, and other life comforts, humans reversibly lose a certain amount of intelligence and become closer to expensive programmable machines.

It does not necessarily have to be their fault, or to be about priorities they consciously choose.
