I'm fed up with Ubuntu users. If it was just your obscenity of a distribution that was a problem, I could cope with simply not using it. That isn't my biggest issue, however. You insist on lying and engaging in denial about everything that is wrong with it, and suppressing complaint about said problems in any way you can.

Well fucking said! *applauds* Ubuntu users are the Scientologists of the OSS world.

Earlier this month, security consultant Rich Mogull wrote on his blog that Apple was struggling to protect users against malware and other online threats. It would appear that Macs are now also on the radar of malware authors."
