Alright, after four references to the mouse wheel, I'm calling bullshit. You are engaging in an ancient practice called FUD. Linux is the most popular and widely-used operating system in history. The reasons are obvious.
The only reason I use Windows --the ONLY reason-- is because it runs the Adobe Creative Suite. If Adobe ported their apps to Linux, Wine or other, I would dump Windows so fast Superman wouldn't be able to keep up.
P.S. I've been using Linux as a primary work desktop for 23 years. I've built five successful businesses on it. I can say with absolute certainty that I have never once EVER had a problem with a mouse wheel.
I have nothing but respect for what you've accomplished, Mr. Shuttleworth. I think Ubuntu and Canonical have done more for Linux than most people will ever know.
Just take a moment out of your day when you get a chance and thank God you aren't a game developer, because if you think you've seen haters, you will be amazed at how much worse it can get.
If Linux's biggest problem is its users, gaming's biggest problem is gamers.
I had all six at various points during my career.
I tried to do a good job, but it didn't matter. I was driven out of every job, mainly because I didn't respond properly when ordered to "do it wrong or you're fired."
If you have a bad manager (and you always will) you can't win. Managers have the unassailable power to ruin your life and they will never fail to do so. Then they will hire some half-literate former janitor from overseas to pretend to do your job until the stock options vest.
It's almost a mini-escrow transaction, which isn't disclosed to the seller until the cunt ripoff fraud buyer disappears over the hill with the money and your $1600 mountain bike.
PayPal can eat a dick. Cashier's check or fuck off.
And two days later your thickness arrives in the mail.
Amazon is amazing.
In the second, for an HTML/CSS job (21 years total experience), I got an offer. I went to the recruiter to fill out paperwork, signed an arbitration agreement (slick, huh?) and then was told by some 23-year-old sandal-wearing "account executive" the company had withdrawn the offer to re-evaluate.
If you're having trouble finding people in Orange County, it's because the recruiting companies and the companies they hire for are frauds.
Hi. You'd probably rather not bring up account numbers.
You're a shill. Have a nice day.
> then companies like Google wouldn't feel motivated to put interviewees through these grueling, demoralizing, dehumanizing interviews
Google does that because they enjoy being in a position of total power over another human being. It has nothing to do with the job. They've also admitted it's useless and ineffective.
> Too bad they're completely unemployable.
Let's see how well things go when those millions of "unemployable" people realize there's no hope.
> Completely mind-numbing. But this company was successful at meeting predictable deadlines by employing thousands of relatively mindless IT graduates.
The company was also successful at hiding the utter incompetency of its management.
American employers and the people who run them make more money hiring someone who will pretend to do the job until the company goes out of business than they do hiring someone who will actually do the job and produce a better product and more business.
Fraud, lying and theft are much easier than working. It is all corrupt. Corrupt through and through. The American workplace is about hookers, drugs, porn, theft, embezzlement, securities fraud, government payoffs, bilking taxpayers and media manipulation.
Then understand those people are your customers.
After that you won't want to make a game any more.
Is that what you tell yourself while you're working the astroglide puddle and calling your pillow a bitch?
I hope the FCC turns the Internet off. Watching you pasty-ass fatbodies wander outside in your pajamas will at least entertain the media for a few days.
You no longer control the computer. It controls you.

Hope auto-save is worth it. I'll stick with Emacs. It makes backups automatically if I configure it to. It does versioning too. Automatic backups are a better feature.
Not as questionable as the no-evidence claims made in that article.
The only reason people are pissed off about Creative Cloud is because they can't pirate Photoshop any more.
Of course, those same people have no problem with Steam, even though it uses the same DRM.
Typical neckbeard hypocrites. Now mod it down you bunch of diaper wearing crybabies.
Slashdot will be along any minute now to explain why it will never work and why China can build it cheaper.
