Desktop Linux Is Dead

jxs2151 Re:On the contrary (1348 comments)

You call Apple's market share "success"?

And BTW, Apple started succeeding when it pushed it's fanboi's to the background and thus became mainstream enough to be accepted.

Desktop Linux Is Dead

jxs2151 Re:On the contrary (1348 comments)

Linux desktop is very much alive...on thinclients :)

However, what is up with the obvious story troll? Are the /. numbers low today?

"...what is up with the obvious story troll?"

This is what the author was referring to when he mentioned "...the fierce ideology of the open-source community...". Dismissing non-believers as heretics/trolls makes you an ideologue and renders the platform unattractive to regular users. Your natural reaction to this will be to dismiss regular users as not worthy of Linux but nobody wants to adopt a platform that gets them trashed by smelly, overbearing, slogan-yelling hippies.

Thanks asshole.

Skyhook Wireless Sues Google Over Anti-Competitive Practices

jxs2151 Re:Fanboys (228 comments)

But, but, but....five years ago everyone here was telling me that Google was somehow different and would mod down those who disagreed. I'm just glad I hung around long enough to see you guys get your education.

Smart Trash Carts Tell If You Haven't Been Recycling

jxs2151 Re:Recycling is Bullshit (622 comments)

I would say the opposite. The world would be a far safer place to live if we didn't have guns at all.

Facts are funny things, and they say you are wrong...completely wrong.

Here's a radical truth that is sure to change your entire life: Chicks want sex as much as we do. Sure, they spend from 14-30 convincing us (and themselves) otherwise but the older women I know ask me why in the hell we fell for that deception.

US Marine Corps Bans Social Networking Sites

jxs2151 Re:You can shoot people, son, but don't blog! (202 comments)

A guy is given the power to shoot people, but not to blog or buy a beer (if he's under 21). Seems like a mixed message.

They're only allowed to shoot people on command.

You really have no idea exactly how much the average Marine is trusted with awesome responsibilities do you? Try going out and finding the truth instead of just spouting what your faggity little friends vapidly repeat at the coffehouse.

Wikileaks Releases Sensitive Guantanamo Manual

jxs2151 Re:Prosecute them. (643 comments)

I swear to God, if my children are harmed because a terrorist used information gathered from this site I will hurt the people who run the site.

They seem to like accountability, how's that for accountability? I will hold them personally responsible and like them, take the law into my own hands to further an action I believe strongly in.

What to Do With All That Copper?

jxs2151 (554138) writes "With the almost certain death of copper line telephony, what do we do with all that copper laying around in the ground and in buildings? Surely there must be a good (re)use for something that took a lot of effort to install."

Cyberwar - Where do your loyalties lie?

jxs2151 jxs2151 writes  |  more than 7 years ago

jxs2151 writes "It's the year 2013 and the world is fully involved in the first open 'cyberwar' in history. The Chinese are disrupting PC's with massive virus attacks, Russia is disabling satellites, the US is spreading nanobots throughout the world, Europe is in the grips of a medical panic as instruments in hospitals cease to work. Jihadis are shutting down websites left and right. Online banking is impossible and commerce is slowly grinding to a halt. Normal communications become strained as the load on the infrastructure increases. There is no way to tell how it all started. Your country calls on your skills and talents. What do you do? Where do your loyalties lie?"
