How long until...
Rod rubbing register readers?
With an apt icon.
Linus Torvalds used his latest missive to the Linux Kernel mailing list to have a go at innocent Digg users - all in the name of getting the email more widely read, of course. At the end of the message detailing merge requests, Torvalds wrote: "PS. And to get wider distribution for this message: Digg users - you're all a bunch …
The Spam King and associates, perhaps? They already have the ability to get Linus' message, whatever it is, to the mailbox of millions... so:
Spammers are all Onanistic Onagers?
With the inverted icon to that suggested by Naich, because they're a bunch of backward onanists at best.
why linux isnt taken seriously enough to be a threat to Windows/OS X
When the rest of the business world they run the opposite direction with thoughts like ::
"If i trust the operation of my business to linux, and this little upstart has another hissy fit at some stage and does something because he 'wants to' (foot stamping) then will i be left f$%ked"
Real professional Linus.. real good. You showed them. Sink below everyone first. Winner!!!!
I have to agree. And the Linux old-schoolers ask rhetorically "Why is it Shuttleworth that gets to talk to Dell and Intel and is getting all the business mag column inches?"
Linus doesn't seem to understand the responsibilities that come with his position. Either that or he doesn't care. Fortunately for Linux, its developer community and user base are large enough that Linus' "idiosyncrasies" matter little.
Absolutely. Linus needs to develop some of the basic social skills required for a successful professional in the IT world if anyone is to take Linux seriously.
Perhaps he should start by practicing chair-hurling and screaming death threats at Google. That's the way market *winners* behave. No alliteration. No attempt at humour. Just obscenities and unchained agression.
Walruses are tame compared to BillG and other microsoft employee emails. MS is now careful to destroy internal email promptly to avoid embarrassment.
AFAIK, Linus and Theo have never thrown furniture at people. With that in mind, which operating system has the most professional looking leader?
No no, for GNU you'd have to pick some tossy recursive acronym, like say :
XIAAS Is An Ass Spelunker
That breaks backward compatibility with alliteration (which is deprecated), but it might be fixed in a later version, if anyone can be bothered.
