Haha, I’ve been blocked from commenting at Distrowatch. The funny part is some tard wanted to challenge my virility.
For the record, I don’t have a girlfriend. My better half won’t let me have one. Neither will the kids. (Edit: Out of curiosity, what’s more Darwinian: your “feelings” about how much action I get or that you actually have “feelings” about it? MYOB, putz. Stop thinking — worse, feeling — about my sex life and worry about your own.)
Here’s my last reply, which won’t post and redirects me to the DWW page:
SUBJECT: @unsophisticated users @103: "Unsophisticated users" = those Windows/Linux users who won't bother to actually learn OpenBSD but merely want to pad their "tried that"-resumes' by running something pre-configured and dumbed down. Kind of like a couple weeks ago with the whole automounting crap and an expectation based on lowest common denominators that everything should work just like Windows. Just install OpenBSD if you want to run OpenBSD. If your goal is a Gnome desktop, there are already plenty of Linux projects which accomplish that and it's clear that the OpenBSD project doesn't care to participate in attracting "market share" from those projects. They have their own comfortable niche. They don't want to cater to the kinds of users who want automagic everything. Again, it's *irrelevant* what OS is running beneath your desktop environment if you don't want to get your hands dirty with the OS. This whole thing is amusing from that aspect because you people are acting like someone's depriving you of something by not catering to the lowest common denominator of (unsophisticated) computer user. I've installed OpenBSD 4.6 and its installer is quite easy to use, even easier than earlier versions -- and those were pretty easy for anyone willing to actually RTFM. As I wrote on my own blog yesterday, "Dumbing the process down brings in dummies" and that's not one of the goals of the OpenBSD project. It's not about snobbiness, it's just about the project's goals -- and it's not that OpenBSD's goals are out of step with people like you, people like you are out of step with OpenBSD's goals. They respect your right to use other operating systems that will cater to your sort, so why can't you respect their right to not appeal to users like you? If it's out of step with the project's goals, why should they want someone to spam their list with an announcement about a fork? If you don't respect the project enough to work within it, don't be surprised if they express some form of rebuke -- in this instance, I thought it was very mild -- when someone outside their own ecosystem uses their list to advertise a fork. They don't owe forks or fork-ers anything. If you don't work with them, why should they work with you? Answer that, please. What's up with the personal attack on my virility, lamer? Stop projecting and stick to the issues. You *really* don't want to go there. FWIW:
Personal note to Ladislav: I’ve been banned by better people from better sites for a lot worse. If you can’t stand valid criticism and other points of view, maybe you’re in the wrong business.
