Alan Cox: Fedora 18 "The Worst Red Hat Distro," Switches To Ubuntu

panthrkub Re:Giving up so quickly? (380 comments)

Touché. :) However, in this case the key word is contributed. I think all of us geeks (I'm going out on a limb and assuming you're a geek as well) can agree that it's pretty silly to give up on something because the installer... the open source installer... is buggy.

I also really, really wanted to use that meme.

Alan Cox: Fedora 18 "The Worst Red Hat Distro," Switches To Ubuntu

panthrkub Re:People use Red Hat? (380 comments)

"Red Hat became the first one-billion dollar open source company in its fiscal year 2012, reaching $1.13 billion in annual revenue." Yes, I'd say people use "Red Hat". More specifically they probably use Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or JBoss, etc.

How To List FOSS Experience On Your Resume

panthrkub Re:Stretching it (103 comments)

I'll give you that HR in a typical corporate environment that doesn't leverage FOSS might not appreciate even a significant contribution to an open source project. However, even the summary of this article mentions that this is for "the reader who is selling skills gained in an open source project". So, uh...yeah. Way to miss the point.

FOSS Sexism Claims Met With Ire and Denial

panthrkub Re:Not true, there are a lot of female developers (1255 comments)

Are you implying that female developers choose to write proprietary software *because* of the protection from sexual harassment that labor laws provide? That's absurd. Now, if you said they work for proprietary software companies because they want to get *paid* for their work, that would make more sense. Luckily I have the best of both worlds with my job, as I work in the FOSS industry, yet still have full benefits, and every so often will contribute something of value while getting paid for it. ;) But I know that I'm in the minority.

FOSS Sexism Claims Met With Ire and Denial

panthrkub Re:No Denial Here But What Are the Reasons? (1255 comments)

If there's any sexism, I've seen no proof it's internal to FOSS.

Agreed. I've never had any of my contributions denied simply because I am a woman. I had absolutely no problem getting a job either (in the FOSS community, no less!). And I've certainly never been 'attacked'. I keep reading and re-reading some of these comments and I'm just at a loss for words. This community is about more than keynote speeches. If your project denies your patches because you are female, then it's time to join a different project. Hit me up if you need help finding one.

Is Valve's Steam Anti-Competitive?

panthrkub You keep using that word... (286 comments)

I totally agree. I would not have known about Darwinia if it weren't for Steam, and now I feel like I've contributed to a good cause (a small developer with genuine talent).
