The Linux Hater’s blog takes on the logic used by Linux zealots. Example:
Lusers: Linux is more stable, take for example all of Google runs Linux. Nasa uses Linux. The French administration uses Linux. Therefore Linux is good enough for you.
Holy crap. I’ve never heard this argument before! You know what, I’ll help you out. The NYSE runs Linux too! That’s really great to know. I’ll be sure to recommend Linux to my grandma next time she wants to set up a global stock exchange in her knitting room.
Lusers always like to find instances of companies or organizations with extremely uncommon Linux use cases and somehow say that the reason that I should run it on my computer. My fridge runs an embedded OS called FridgeOS (actually, I made that up, I don’t know the name). It supports four buttons and has better temperature controls than Linux. It’s really stable. I’ve never seen it crash. It’s also really minimal and won’t use all your RAM. You should totally port it to run on your PC. That would be truly awesome.
Bonus: It was at Linux Hater that I learned of Penguin Rage, a blog written by an experienced Linux user writing about the gripes and weirdness related to Linux and why it doesn’t always ‘just work’. Take for instance the rant on xserver.
