I'm not sure what's worse. The suspected presence of MS astroturfing, which is very difficult to prove. Or, the obvious ramblings of a juvenile Linux zealot with his head up his ass.

Get the fuck off Slashdot and go back to BoycottNovell where that shit belongs.

I have fond memories of this game. Robotron 2084 was one of the first 3 arcade machines my father purchased, used from a local arcade in Burton, Michigan. I don't think I'll ever rekindle the feeling of seeing real arcade machines in the living room. It was a real "Silver Spoons" moment for me.

Our Robotron machine died as a result of the cinder-block sized linear power supply which fried a rectifier and 2 ICs on the main board. Today I still play the game via MAME (solid blue label romset). My current high score is 4,515,850 on the default settings. I actually find the keyboard is far superior to the dual joysticks as they don't cause as much fatigue.

No, because most people are ignorant and/or stupid. They will often blame Microsoft for any computer problem. Bad hard drive, faulty memory, seized cooling fan? I've heard people blame Microsoft for symptoms that occurred due to these exact problems. I'm sure you would too, simply out of spite.

The article correctly points out that sound recording, editing and mixing is fine on Linux.

Which is bullshit, because doing any audio production on generic hardware is on the top 10 list of things not to do. There's a reason people buy the expensive audio cards. Noise and interference are a huge problem on standard PC audio devices. Even worse if it's on-board audio.

No, the link you provided is how Doom 3 looked for people who were playing the game on the same monitor that came with their first Packard Bell computer from 1992. Even if these monitors could display a proper picture, the idiots using them didn't have a clue as to how to adjust any of the picture settings on the monitor or in the game.

If Windows 7 catches on, it won't be long before you run across software that refuses to run on XP.

It's common today to find software that won't run on anything older than Windows 2000. That's largely because Windows ME, 98 and 95 were not based on NT. To assume Microsoft would release another NT based operating system that is so radically different that it would spawn "Windows 7 only" software is not only wrong, it's downright asinine.
