Woman Claims Ubuntu Kept Her From Online Classes

samtihen Re:Expected (1654 comments)

Well, I was going to go into a tirade about how stupid the girl is, but the reality is that she called to explain the mixup and Dell somehow convinced her to keep Ubuntu. Dell, if someone calls and says they got a Ubuntu computer by mistake, just have them ship it back. It isn't worth it.

Personality Testing For Employment

samtihen Re:Sounds accurate to me (581 comments)

As far as I'm concerned, it simply punishes the extremely stupid.

If you can't even figure out how a "good employee" would answer for most of the questions, then I highly suspect you stand little chance of actually being one.

Linux Pre-Installs In the UK Hit 2.8%

samtihen Re:For How Long? (289 comments)


If you haven't noticed, most computers with Linux installed by default aren't easy to come by. The vast majority of the time you have to go out of your way to get one, and they are rarely any cheaper. In fact, Dell XPS m1330's are routinely more expensive with Ubuntu installed. The exceptions here are the netbooks, of course.

I'd wager that WAY more XP/Vista boxes get reinstalled with Linux than the other way around.
