Linus and KDE

I used to be a KDE user. I thought KDE 4.0 was such a disaster I switched to GNOME.

I can (well, almost) hear you asking yourselves "why?". Hurd will be
out in a year (or two, or next month, who knows), and I've already got
minix. This is a program for hackers by a hacker. I've enjouyed doing
it, and somebody might enjoy looking at it and even modifying it for
their own needs.

just give the code back

For example, the GPLv2 in no way limits your use of the software. If you're a mad scientist, you can use GPLv2'd software for your evil plans to take over the world ("Sharks with lasers on their heads!!"), and the GPLv2 just says that you have to give source code back. And that's OK by me. I like sharks with lasers. I just want the mad scientists of the world to pay me back in kind. I made source code available to them, they have to make their changes to it available to me. After that, they can fry me with their shark-mounted lasers all they want.

Security people

Security people are often the black-and-white kind of people that I can't stand. I think the OpenBSD crowd is a bunch of masturbating monkeys , in that they make such a big deal about concentrating on security to the point where they pretty much admit that nothing else matters to them.

Just tell people to use KDE

I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE.
This "users are idiots, and are confused by functionality" mentality of Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will use it. I don't use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do.
Please, just tell people to use KDE.

Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect.

Πού να ξέρω αν δουλεύει; Γι' αυτό υπάρχουν οι beta testers. Εγώ απλά έγραψα τον κώδικα.
