Linux Qoutes

In most countries selling harmful things like drugs is punishable. Then howcome people can sell Microsoft software and go unpunished? — Hasse Skrifvars

Once upon a time there was a DOS user who saw Unix, and saw that it was good. After typing cp on his DOS machine at home, he downloaded GNU’s unix tools ported to DOS and installed them. He rm’d, cp’d, and mv’d happily for many days, and upon finding elvis, he vi’d and was happy. After a long day at work (on a Unix box) he came home, started editing a file, and couldn’t figure out why he couldn’t suspend vi (w/ ctrl-z) to do a compile. — Erik Troan

When you say “I wrote a program that crashed Windows”, people just stare at you blankly and say “Hey, I got those with the system, *for free* —  Linus Torvalds

…you might as well skip the Xmas celebration completely, and instead sit in front of your linux computer playing with the all-new-and-improved linux kernel version. —  Linus Torvalds

…Unix, MS-DOS, and Windows NT (also known as the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly) — Matt Welsh

  1. You and your geek world try so very hard to mock Windows and its users. Little do you realize that these quotes are pointless, but for those of you who sit before their machines and type away ‘lol’ all day long in forums and chatrooms…. while expecting a Christmas gift of an output for compiling the daily latest Kernel…

  2. Nope, dude. The quotes are exactly true to the point, the ones that you can’t do with a Microsoft OS. What is the fun in just moving the cursor around some windows ?

    The output of the latest Kernel compilation is Something that equals to a Christmas present. How do you get that feeling with a Windows ??

    Atleast tell me this. What is the point of using an OS which gives no value for its customers ? Atleast a customer needs to own a copy (or distribute) but the Copyright terms are such that you can’t even change an OS that is bought by you with your own money. “WHAT A WASTE”

  3. We all know that Microsoft’s software and product policies are crap.

    But you can’t deny an XP’s usability for a layman( ofcourse, cost is not a problem, coz he is a not-so-poor layman), who is more focused on the task at hand rather than the linux-flavour/kernel at hand.

    PS: I am no Microsoft fan, but an XP fan. 🙂

  4. > But you can’t deny an XP’s usability for a layman

    Does this mean, Linux is no good for a layman. See there are several thousands of users who knows how to get things working on linux easier than the Windows way. Now there is not a single application which is complex and non-userfriendlu in Linux which is unfit for a layman.

    >ofcourse, cost is not a problem, coz he is a not-so-poor layman

    So, just calculate the amount of money to be spent for the softwares for his works in Windows. After this you’ll find this man as a billionaire who has no value for his money and become a licensie of a software that is not owned by him….

    Please read it, its about DRM (Digital restrictions management)

  5. For the poor layman, Ubuntu Linux is offering a free subscription to Online Magazines like this
    http://fullcirclemagazine.org/

    So won’t have to be a layman more…………
