JonJ Re:SteamBox just got really interesting (106 comments)

Who gives a shit about OS X and Linux?

You're on slashdot, so I'm going to guess quite a lot of people.

Prominent GitHub Engineer Julie Ann Horvath Quits Citing Harrassment

JonJ Re:Time to fork Git? (710 comments)

Its like you guys have no clue what history is ... that or you like watching failure repeat itself time and time again. Show me 'community driven' that didn't fail in the first year, go ahead, you can look for a while, we'll wait.

I'm going to go ahead and guess that you're going to call every place where someone somewhere has been paid to be involved 'not community driven' even if there are only a very few people being paid. So no thanks.

Prominent GitHub Engineer Julie Ann Horvath Quits Citing Harrassment

JonJ Re:I know exactly what happened. (710 comments)

This was good idea.

I absolutely disagree that this was good idea. Buying into the wifes drama and secrets makes no sense. This is a typical situation that you don't escalate anywhere. Don't talk to your co-workers about it, don't discuss it. Pretend it didn't happen and continue your work. The wife is bonkers, do not play along at any level.

this isn't about her being female.

I agree that her situation with the wife and the hula hoops aren't really a sexism thing, but the coworker that started reverting her patches silently after professing his love certainly is. The problem with the pathes should be easy enough to show, but it's going to be difficult proving that he actually did confess his love.

Developing Games On and For Linux/SteamOS

JonJ Re:Wine is working on that (145 comments)

You're not seriously using Slackware as a benchmark for what's supported on Linux? I love the distro, but that's just absurd.

Norway Rejects Bitcoin As Currency; Taxes As Asset, Instead

JonJ Re:How is Norway going to know? (245 comments)

You don't know shit about norway, and complain about a practice that has been abandoned which in no way took away from your personal freedom. I guess you're just an ignorat twat then.

JonJ Re:How is Norway going to know? (245 comments)

You get a sticker every year showing that the yearly road fee is paid, and that liability insurance is OK.

No, stickers are out now. It's all electronic.

Canonical Moving Away From GNOME Control Center

JonJ Re:NIH (208 comments)

Because of that Redhat lost mindshare and customers (to Canonical, in many cases).

So a move Red Hat did in 2003 made them lose customers to an unproven upstart company with no solution for the enterprise i 2005. Sounds legit.

Larry Ellison Believes Apple Is Doomed

JonJ Re: Oracle is not a competitor. (692 comments)

Apple has more or less thrown in the towel in the server space with the retirement of the Xserve. Not that they had a huge presence anyway.

Early Surface Sales Pitiful

JonJ It's a shitty brand (251 comments)

Microsoft is a brand that inspires no confidence from consumers, and the only one who actually likes them are simpleton sysadmins.

FreeBSD Co-founder Jordan Hubbard Leaves Apple To Join iXsystems

JonJ Hopefully (58 comments)

Someone will fix OS X to be a proper operating system, instead of a kludge of different build versions for different model of computers. It's so far from elegant and modular that it's a disgrace.

Fedora Project Developer Proposes Layered, More Agile Design to Distribution

JonJ Re:What we'd really need (74 comments)

No, it's because your drunken ramblings make no sense at all. This is purely about Fedora, not upstream projects. Debian, Canonical etc. aren't pulling directly from Fedora.

Wikileaks Aiding Snowden - Chinese Social Media Divided - Relations Strained

JonJ Re:Done us all a favor (629 comments)

Norway has just approved "Datalagringsdirektivet" which is country wide surveillance of internet and phone traffic, a highly controversial law, only made possible via co-op from both left wing and right wing parties(Arbeiderpartiet and Høyre). In addition, we recently passed a law allowing private companies to have access to logs of IP addresses and connections from ISPs. Norway sucks.

Oracle going for CentOS users

JonJ JonJ writes  |  more than 2 years ago

JonJ writes "It seems like Oracle are having some difficulties taking on Red Hat, and are starting to focus on poaching CentOS' customers. Focusing on potential delays CentOS might face, siting the delay in kernel upgrades as a selling point. They've even taken the time to create their own shell script for converting a CentOS install to Oracle Linux."
