The word "devoid" does not mean what you obviously seem to think it does.

Try checking a dictionary before making an asshat of yourself

A Trip Down Distro Memory Lane

sir fer Re:SuSE Ruled... (238 comments)

7.10 was not LTS and took forever to boot on my HP lappy and needed config to handle the start-up screen. 8.04 however was a dog for me and by that time I had learned enough debian to make the switch. Ubuntu is the whole set take it or leave it, debian is like lego, build it how you want and any bits you don't like can be removed and replaced with bits you do. I still run ubuntu from time to time (twas my first real working-with-wireless-linux) but Debian is just better once you become an advanced n00b.

Ubuntu Kung Fu

sir fer Re:Ultimate ubuntu kung fu move (253 comments)

Debian is suspiciously absent from that list...I have windows and Debian and currently there is nothing I can do in windows that I cannot do in Debian but, of course, YMMV as I don't really do anything 'mission critical' with my own computers.

IBM Launches Microsoft-Free Linux Virtual Desktop

sir fer Re:TCO (344 comments)

I've never met a Linux user who didn't know windows, but have met many windows users who have never even heard of Linux. Linux users *do* tend to be computer gods to the average knucklehead, simply because they know *more* about computers. Find me a Linuxer who has never heard of windows....

Well said. I bet the GP spends plenty of time watching TV. IMO there is not a bigger waste of time on the planet. Even masturbation is more productive.

Dispelling Myths About Geomagnetic Reversal

sir fer Re:Not really worried. (158 comments)

What bullshit. The largest influence on the Earths climate is the Sun! You know? that bright thing in the sky that makes it warmer during the day. I don't know what sort of climatologists you speak to but they are idiots if they say the Earths magnetic field is the largest influence on the climate. It prevents the solar wind being a significant influence so it prevents many other influences but it is NOT an influence in and of itself. Incident EM radiation and the Earths magnetic field are 2 distinct and unrelated phenomena. FYI I am a physicist and your post is almost complete nonsense.

NIST Releases Report On WTC 7 Collapse

sir fer Re:oh ok (1331 comments)

Since the force of the collapse would be orders of magnitude greater than what these elements were designed to support, it seems probable that they would impede the progress of the collapse to about the same degree that a cloud of smoke would impede a lazily swung sledgehammer.

More handwaving bullshit. You have no idea that anything you have stated is true apart from the fact you pulled it out of your own stinking arse.
