FUD, Flames, and all that Jazz

You know I actually love the Linux community, yep its true,
I used to get all emotional when I saw things I didn’t agree with now I just
sit back and smile when I see stuff like;

“Red Hat is going proprietary! Burn the heretic!!”

“Novell has got into bed with MS! Burn the heretic!!”

“Debian coders are getting paid! Burn the heretic!!”

It reminds me of that idiot I saw on X Factor the other week (X Factor is a reality game show where wannabe
stars get up on stage and like a performing dog give excruciatingly embarrassing
performances in the absolutely, unlikely, hope they may become a superstar
he argued with everyone so much that the auditioning group slung him out, not
because he was a bad singer just he was a bad communicator, then blow me down
he was arguing to get back in the group!

Strikes me some people just like to moan.


Graphical GIT

smspillaz has started work on a GUI installer for GIT this is really cool for all those who do not feel  comfortable at command line. He makes a really valid point, and one that probably holds true for Linux in general;

Compiz Fusion has attracted a whole bunch of Windows XP and Vista users to the Linux destkop, which is great, but they are used to “Next” installers and are probably not tolerant or familiar with Synaptic, Yum, YAST, and other command line tools to install Compiz“.

Compiz Fusion is the result of a merge between the well-known Beryl composite window manager and Compiz Extras, a community set of improvements to the Compiz composite window manager. Compiz Fusion aims to provide an easy and fun-to-use windowed environment, allowing use of the graphics hardware to render each individual window and the entire screen, to provide some impressive effects, speed and usefulness.
