I am not an enemy of Free Software; you may disagree with Ubuntu or my work, but you don't speak for everyone. Let's keep things civil: we are all people.
Being serious for a second though, I am sorry you feel I am an enemy of Free Software. I have devoted my life to furthering Free Software across various projects, but the key point here is that there is room for everyone. If you have ethical issues with Ubuntu, there are plenty of other distros available. What doesn't help anyone is this personalized and aggressive tone and language; let's not forget we are all people. Also, as a side note, I barely know Lefty and haven't seen him for probably four years, and even then it was a five minute chat at GUADEC. You are seeing conspiracy and subterfuge where none exists.
Yep, you got me. What a mind reader.
...and then apologized two days later. It turns out, some people are human and make mistakes. I am human, I make mistakes, but I apologize for them. At least I don't call people a "fucking scumbag". The irony is strong in this one.
What a powerful, and well reasoned argument.
I agree we need a long term vision, such as this video "The World in 2050" by XPRIZE founder, Peter Diamandis - https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
I community didn't die; we focused on new areas and saw significant growth such as in app developers and cloud. Some parts of our traditional community has indeed seen some lower participation as we have focused on these new areas that needed spinning up. I don't believe it is fair to characterize this as the overall community dying though.
Sorry, I wish we could, but you should check out Bad Voltage (www.badvoltage.org)
To be fair, your foot tickles.
Love the logic. I am terrible for calling RMS "childish" and then apologizing two days later, but your behavior is perfectly reasonable and justified for calling me a "fucking scumbug" who deserves a caning. Love it.
Yep, I used to use Windows to do videocasts. And?
