In the spirit of GNU and open source, we should not have any standard, not just HTML, just like how Linux is: you can have Mir, X-Window whatever and 7600 worthless Linux distros and the users should be given "freedom" (and the developers lose their "freedom" to pay bills & rent & from proverty because nobody wants to pay for free software anyways). Hey I should work for free and let these people who don't pay my tuition use it because I'm a GNU/Saint. Fork HTML away so it ends up with 1,000,000 different standard just like GNU/Linux is. LOL.

Dear Google Executives, Please come to Canada and bring Google Fiber to crush the big 3 cartels and their expensive internet & mobile plans: Telus, Bell, Rogers. PS# Telus is about to half the bandwidth cap starting Feb 2013 ... I'm willing to switch to Google Fiber if it's here by then!

Comment: My experience switching to KDE4.8 from Gnome3 (Score 0, Informative) 152

I just want to say that KDE4 is awesome. When I switched to openSUSE 11.2 last month, my first impression is: I love Amarok, the Dolphin file manager is 100 x better than Mac's Finder and Gnome Nautilus and Windows Explorer altogether. The default setup is pretty annoying though, I had to turn off quite a few eye candies. At least it's configurable, unlike in Gnome. I didn't regret one bit converting from Ubuntu (12.04) to SuSE (11.2) with KDE. It's stable, rock solid. In Ubuntu, my other PC's Radeon often locks up, but not the case with opensuse. Very stable. Moreover, now Ubuntu is an adware.

As if working without getting paid producing free software isn't bad enough, you have these wannabe who forks stuff and claim it as their code. Like Mambo and Joomla, B2Evolution and Wordpress, Ubuntu and Redhat. I'm sure writing OSS software is a very profitable way of making a living, much better than writing closed-source software!

This is another example of Microsoft trying to pollute open standard! Yes, I am aware that it's under Apache 2.0 License, but they're just going to introduce chaos and evil as usual like their Sharepoint piece of $h1t. DEFINITELY NO NO NO NO NO !!! NO NO NO NO NO !!! NO NO NO NO NO !!! NO NO NO NO NO !!! NO NO NO NO NO !!!
