Ugh, his latest story is baaad.

Otter said it best when he said he needs to drop the pompous lectures about "better business model." Seems like ScuttleMich^H^H^Honkey is an open source/free software guy who is trying to tell a proprietary company about how wrong it is what they are doing.Ugh, his latest story is baaad.

Of course, my thought was to correct his pointless whining... but those that follow must be wary... that way leads to bannination...

Update: Sorry, Keith... didn't mean to say the same thing as you.

Except that ScuttleMonkey's response [slashdot.org] to people who challenge his biased postings, is well-reasoned and even-tempered.

Damm , there goes that theory

Have other people noticed that since the disappearance of a certain editor, the rate of comments suddenly plummeting from +5 to -1, Offtopic (usually in said editor's stories) has dropped to zero? I'd always half-thought I was being paranoid, but...

Anyway, my two big objections here have always been 1) moderation and banning abuse by editors and 2) stories that are flat-out false. (Admittedly, the Bill Gates blurb comes perilously close to the latter.) The rest of the nonsense, dupes, idiocy I don't get as aggrieved over as some people do.

the thing that irritates me about poser and daz is that they aren't really the same kinds of programs as 3ds max, maya, lightwave, xsi, etc. they're basically things that let you buy pre-made models and render them in the poses you want. that's not bad, i'm just tired of people trying to draw a link to the proliferation of hobbyist 3d packages (that even non-artists can get decent results using) and professional 3d packages soon meeting the end of profitability. they play to totally different markets with totally different requirements.

if this weren't the case, there wouldn't be room for all the professional packages previously mentioned as they compete against each other.

Jinx! (1)

You can have the DAZ|Studio story, I'll take the billg interview, and we'll call it even. Howzat?

Thanks for nothing (1)

Spend my time looking down my nose at the people who watch Entertainment Tonight, or are up on the latest with Brad and Jennifer. Feel superior to the watchers of most prime time t.v.
 
And then you post this and as soon as I see it in my messages I just can't click it fast enough. Where will I find my false sense of superiority now? Where?
