Comment Wow has it been that long? (Score 5, Insightful) 299

I remember when Linus posted it. I downloaded it and played with it a bit.

When Slackware 0.99a came out I gave it another try. It was not long before I was converting my Minix boxes at the house over to Linux.

In 1995 I switched from Windows 3.11 to Slackware and never looked back. To this day I run linux on all my systems at home save a small laptop that runs Windows XP though it is just to manage the spectrophotometer which does not have a linux driver.

Linux has come a long way and I am always amazed at how much of the world runs linux from Cell Phones, to routers, to supercomputers.

It is SO "systemd". More of the binary is better bullshit.

If you need a .Net runtime for your shell, you are f*cked.

Since every object type that you'd want to build for *nix systems already exists as Perl or Ruby code, that can be accessed through C-PAN or Git, I really don't see what problem this solves. The problem of how to force a .Net runtime on every machine in existence?

Voicemail.

Black hole.

I have 21-year-old acquaintances who have NEVER looked at voicemail in their entire lives. More so remarkable, because they'd individually had iPhones with a visual voicemail feature, for up to 20% of their time on earth.

You want to annoy my 16-year old? Call on the phone. I expect voice to be a nearly dead medium in a decade.

When you are almost depressed? Anything to take your mind off it.

When you are giddy? You can take on the WORLD! "That'll show 'em all!"

Somehow this observation is presented as a counter-intuitive result from examining new data. We ALL love counter-intuitive results. Comprehending them makes us feel intelligent.
