    LMAO. Sometimes, I know exactly how he feels.
    I will not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. ... Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    I would bet it is more satire than anything else. I used to do the same thing from a religious basis on a blog that I had, very few people would put that much thought and hatred into something that they didn't like. It's comedic value and hits, that's about it.

    I'm not so sure it is satire if you go to the top. TBH he makes some valid points. I do agree it is done in the vein of trolling but the basis of some of his arguments stand true.

    I have had a good giggle either way.

    Satire can be over the top. Look at places like The Onion, their headlines are usually ridiculously outlandish, but it is done for a humourous affect, and is often referred to as satire.

    Another thing about satire is that you take something based in reality, and care it into a such a realm of lunacy that it becomes funny.

    If he was just doing it here and there, I would believe it was trolling, but looking at how many blogs he has in June alone, I'm pretty sure he is being satirical, finds his posting amusing, enjoys the attention, and the ignorant angry responses he gets back, but in the end, I doubt he (or anyone else for that matter) could feel so passionately about the subject.

    Regardless of the meaning behind it - satire or trolling, it is humourous. As a matter of fact, I had forgotten about the LSB since it was an optional package on my first Mandrake 9.0 install.

    Guess a lot of us are having fun with the "extra" work Linux is supplies us.

    We have to agree some of it is a big pain in the
    Fooling around with Linux since Redhat 5.1 / Hooked on SuSE since 9.2

    I hate Linux too. But I hate it less than Windows.

    Who gets the feeling this person hates ubuntu more than he actually hates linux?

    If u look at this page, most of the problems r those that I have read many posts of in the ubuntuforums saying that how things break each release:

    Now if u read this article, here the person shows that he or she really hates linux, its actually pretty funny

    There are plenty of things to cause aggrevation in any operating system. But at least with opensource developement you can immediately be a part of the solution.
