Linux advocacy?
How the hell do you advocate something that has been around for 10
years yet still has 1.5 percent of the market?
Something doesn't add up.
The lying, SOB, slimy Linux kooks have an answer for everything and
most times it's either a direct lie or a lie based on them leaving out
information on purpose.

Talk about Google browser statistics and the fact that Linux has about
.2 percent of the hits and the Linux idiot will say "we lie about our
broswer strings so we can view IE specific sites".
Huh?
You keep trashing IE yet you have to emulate it so you can view
websites?
That makes a lot of sense.
And oh BTYW the broswer ID string has a lot more information in it
than the faked browser name, it has the OS, version and so forth so I
am sure Google is parsing all this information as well.
Point is Linux REALLY IS .2 percent.

Then we have hardware support.
How many people have ever seen Linux Supported on the box of a
video/disk/etc piece of hardware.
Better choose that printer carefully because chances are it WON'T work
with Linux and when you ask for help you will be ridiculed and told
you shouldn't have bought a chaep piece of junk and should have
purchased an expensive PostScript printer instead.
Duhh, that printer works fine with Windows as well as Macintosh, so
where is Linux?

God only knows, maybe back in Epson 9 pin Dot matrix days......
I'll bet that printer works with Linux!!!

Then we have *** s like Peter Kohlmann, Hamilcar Barca, Liam
Slider, Rick (the *** ) and others like him.
Total fools who can't debate so they try to discredit the poster.
A technique that only works with nubies and idiots.

Good luck Linux because at less than 1 percent of the market after 10
years and free of charge you are doing something major wrong for the
other 99 percent of the marketplace to ignore you.

Wake up!

Linux advocacy? Give me some more.
How the hell do you advocate ex-peehee something that has been around for 10
years yet still has 99% percent of the virus market?
Something doesn't add up.
The lying, SOB, slimy M$ kooks who pay me have an answer for everything and
most times it's either a direct lie or a lie based on them leaving out
information on purpose.

Talk about Google browser statistics and the fact that Linux has about
best percent of the hits and the ex-peehehe idiot will say "we lie about our
broswer strings so we can view IE specific sites".
Huh?
You keep trashing IE if not viruses do yet you have to
emulate it so you can view websites?
That makes a lot of sense.
And oh BTYW the broswer ID string has a lot more information in it
than the faked browser name, it has the OS, version and so forth so I
am sure Google is parsing all this information as well.
Point is Linux REALLY IS best percent.

Then we have hardware support.
How many people have ever seen ex-peehehee Supported on the box of a
video/disk/etc piece of hardware unlike Movix home theater LiveCD distro
that gives better result than home dvd.
Better choose that printer carefully because chances are it WON'T work
with windopes and when you ask for help you will be ridiculed and told
you shouldn't have bought a chaep piece of junk and should have
purchased an expensive PostScript printer instead.
Duhh, that printer works fine not with Windowpes as well as Macintosh, so
get Linux. Don't buy *ANY* printers or manufacturers that do not
support GNU/Linux.

God only knows, maybe back in Epson 9 pin Dot matrix days......
I'll bet that printer works with Linux!!!

Good luck ex-peeheehe because at less than 1 percent of the market after 10
years and free of charge dis service pack 2 you are doing something major
wrong for the other 99 percent of the marketplace to ignore you.

$ + $ = $$ -- ok ?


Welcome to the business world, sonny. Why is it that we expect software to
be so pure and chaste, yet the Oil Companies are assumed to be lying
bastards! The only crime here are the fools who refuse to take everything
with a grain of salt and make intelligent adjustments for b.s.


Google is foremost a business. IE is their primary market. What do you
expect? Sainthood ?!


Imitation is the sincerest form of flatterfishery. At some point, I and
others will design websites to utilize Linux only features.


Clarify last sentence. WTF are you talking about ?!


How many have seen XPee deliver DVD w/o sound or fail to load or suddenly
stop playing in the middle of a movie? Many!


Postscript still isn't a M$ standard. Good luck on printing. It's a
crapshoot.


Linix are like the good kids who do everything right and expect to be
rewarded. Meanwhile, the bad kids get the money and the chicks. It ain't
fair, but it is....


Who prints anyway. I print 1 page a year, mainly, and only if an employer
needs a printed resume. Otherwise, the web has obsolesced the printer.


Not really. People evaluate the person first, then what he says. It's
human nature.


They're due for a fall in marketshare of epic proportions. Stay tuned.


I already drank 4 cups of coffee including a grande cappucino. What else do
you want?!

HEY! What does it matter to you? If you're so happy with just Windows,
just use it! Why do you bother with all this blathering and screaming?
You sound like a *** y liberal Democrat!

You're not advocating anything -- just making more noise for me to filter
out.

Go away

Examples please?


That, dear sir, is because it's true. Broken websites use browser-id to hide
their brokenness by only allowing IE users to see the content, everyone else
gets shunted to a siding with "This website only works with IE 6, please
upgrade or install from >here<"...

UPGRADE?! Yeah right.
The ironic thing is, a lot of those sites actually DO work with other
browsers when they have their ID strings spoofed.

Then of course, there's the other google-stats thing that's started cropping
up recently... The google search and count the hits test.

Search for windows in google and you get 124,000,000 hits, search for linux
and you may only 101,000,000. That's incredibly good when you consider
you're including every single site detailing patio doors, church
architecture, X windows, windows in people's schedules and every other use
of the generic word "windows" while linux is in no way generic.


Do you actually understand what the word "emulate" means?
Masking a browser id is a lot different than writing a program that attempts
to mimic something else exactly. No-one in their RIGHT MIND would try to
EMULATE IE!


So are the websites idiot. If you masked your id string by just changing the
browser name, sites would reply "sorry, you're not getting in that easy, IE?
running in linux? RIIIIGHT"... or words to that effect.


Which is excellent. Even better than WinXP.... NEXT.


Who cares if there's a penguin on the box as long as it WORKS?


Odd that. I saw a printer, colour inkjet in the Argos catalogue earlier this
year... It had linux compatibility as one of its bullet points!


You mean like you're doing here? And have been since the beginning of this
thread? pot, kettle, black.


1% of which market would that be then? Digital watch? Cos it's damned well
not the server market, or even the workstation one. For the umpteenth time,
how do you calculate these mythical stats you people keep coming up with?
Sales? of what? It's free! Downloads? From where? It's free to distribute,
copy, give away or sell on. One download or sale could lead to 10 installs
or even hundreds quite easily

Lib dems tend to be quite a reserved species... But then, it's been 60 years
since they were last in power, so... that's to be expected I suppose.

Of course linux has only a tiny user base/share right now!
It's mostly programmers and tinkerers that use it just now
but that is changing as governments and various agencies
outside of the usa adopt it and DUMP microshite windows.
Anyone who knows anything would not trust their valuable
data/mp3's etc to XP!!!!! Don't worry about it, turn out the
light as you leave the group.
