When I listen to most #Linux
, and read most Linux websites, it seems like all anyone else is ever doing is buying the absolute latest stuff, turning it on, trying to make things work on it, and then tossing it aside for the next shiny, new thing. And then they spend the rest of their time gossiping about #distros
. There are fantastic exceptions, of course. The majority of Linux oriented media feels so anti-Linux to me. It certainly feels anti-GNU. It even feels anti-opensource. I could be wrong.
There are so many
things that could be so much better
in the world of computing. It feels like we are relentlessly spinning our wheels. It also feels like the #opensource
world is "the minor leagues" for "real software." And all people do is use opensource projects as a sort of resumé for a "real job." Of course, there are glorious exceptions, for which we are all grateful. I just wish there was more original exploration rather than just wave after wave of people developing yet another
music player (iTunes clone, I assume), which they later abandon when they get a $300,000 a year job writing software to make your thermostat spy on you.
