Rants and Laughs

In honor of Linux Hater, I decided to start a new Rants & Laughs section. Here goes.

  • OSS 'wild man', Eric Steven 'watch your step' Raymond explains how pidiwvull poor widdle OSS developers are. As usual, comments are required reading.
  • This is a somewhat more interesting post where ESR examins what is still relevant in the Unix Haters Handbook and blindly dismissing 90% of the valid criticisms listed in the book. By the way, I think I will do my own post on this topic later.
  • Remember all the hoopla over Android and the Open Handset Alliance? Well, now it looks like only approved applications will have access to certain functionality. Go Open Source!
  • Speaking of 'open source' cell phones, does anyone remember the Tuxphone? It is a perfect example of a 'community' project, since it does not have the backing of any company, and it looks like ass. Check out the picture below. It looks like something the French government designed.
