Why Linux Is Not Attracting Young Developers

Cheesy Fool Re:Motivation to not do Linux development (742 comments)

Have you actually ever developed anything before?

Because you're having a laugh if you think that developing on Windows or Mac means that you won't run into any of the problems you mention.

Faction Changes Coming To World of Warcraft

Cheesy Fool Re:They are badly losing people... (209 comments)

Game Publishers Pressuring Sony For PS3 Price Cut

Cheesy Fool Re:The XBOX 360 is Just as Expensive as the PS3 (232 comments)

> 1. The PS3 comes with wireless capability. The XBOX 360 requires a $100 wireless kit.

Unless you don't need wireless. Also, you can get a cheap wireless router (and DD-WRT) and use that.

> 2. The XBOX 360's controllers require batteries. An add-on rechargeable battery system costs about $20 per controller.

You can use rechargeable AA batteries, which I'm sure people with a lot of gadgets would already have.

Agreed about the Microsoft points though.

1/3 of Amphibians Dying Out

Cheesy Fool Re:Bullshit! (467 comments)

You can be less materialistic and still not think there is a God. Also, your arguments could easily be reversed (putting you in the uncomfortable category as well), especially the God one.
