Years ago I had a clear political opinion. I was a civil-rights activist. I appreciated freedom and anything limiting freedom was a problem to me. Freedom of speech was one of the most important rights for me. I thought that democracy has to be able to survive radical or insulting opinions. In a democracy any opinion should have a right even if it’s against democracy. I had been a member of the lawsuit against data preservation in Germany. I supported the German Pirate Party during the last election campaign because of a new censorship law. That I became a KDE developer is clearly linked to the fact that it is a free software community.
But over the last years my opinion changed. Nowadays I think that not every opinion needs to be tolerated. I find it completely acceptable to censor certain comments and encourage others to censor, too. What was able to change my opinion in such a radical way? After all I still consider civil rights as extremely important. The answer is simple: Fanboys and trolls.

How did selling the Apple ][ to schools hurt Apple exactly?
Yes, there are. For example: http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/09/08/03/2051252/Intel-Confirms-Data-Corruption-Bug-Halts-New-SSDs
I can get an evaluation of competing distros and get updates forever. That includes the distro that is eating Red Hat's lunch and has surpassed it in number of server installations. And the derived distro based on that which is dominating the Linux desktop.
The one that Mark Shuttleworth admits is not profitable while Red Hat is? Eating Red Hat's lunch? Good joke.
There were more than 2 Terminator movies? Since when?
Do I need to call you the waaahmulance since I've apparently damaged your ego so much? If you don't want to be called out for epeen wagging, then don't pull out your dick and wave it around like one of the many arrogant "rig" builders.
So far it's (arguably) viable to build your own machine if you're a tinkerer nerd whose time is worthless while discussing a system marketed for gamers.
Your butthurt is pretty strong. Did I hurt your ego that much Mr. Epeen Rigmaster?
So that's why you're proud to pay more?
Who says I'm proud to pay more? Or that I'd ever buy this system? Do you routinely pull shit from your ass as arguments?
