    Dun needalawyer tell wad freesoftware z

    Ever heard of a good programmer likes the idea of free software except the Linux gang
    and its hit men? If software is free. Who is gonna write good software? No one. If all software are free, bad programmers (hobbyists) software industry drive out good, professional
    programmers. Bad software drive out good software. And bad people drive out good people.
    Don��t you see that Linux and its hit men are using any possible TERRORIST ways to drive out
    good people. MyDoom is just one of the examples of how Linux gangs using TEEROSIT
    tactics to ��tame�� those not blending to their way? And now they are leaking MS��s source codes in the net. What next?!

    • I don't know many programmers that don't like free software. Personally almost all the money I make comes from doing contract programming, and I'm a strong supporter and advocate of free software. Lots of time is spent reduplicating the wheel. Personally I'd rather improve something that almost does what I want than write something from scratch or take something that almost does what I want but I'm not allowed to change it.

      I very much doubt that the people who wrote MyDoom had much interest in Linux, per ce. Their interest was selling lists of computers that could be used as mail servers to spammers, and get protection money from sites they threaten to attack in the same way. Militarily, diversion is a highly effective strategy. If they wanted to nuke Sco, wouldn't have set an off date, wouldn't have used only 1/3rd of the machines, and it woulda been remote controled though IRC so that when SCO changed domains, the new domain would have been attacked. Besides, most of us that have spent a good number of years with Linux have either mostly forgotten or never really knew that well to begin with the windows APIs.

      Bah, it's all a waste of my time anyway, you're only here to piss people off.

        That means nobody wants to hire you full time. Guess if you quit doing free coding,
        you might still have a chance to be hired by a good company.

        You spent lots of time spending on reinventing the wheel(?) Okay, that is what free software is about huh? Reinventing the wheel and that is why they duplicated 60s�� technology into Linux. Okay. I am sure you and your Linux gang, hit ment don��t want to write something from SCRATCH. And that is why you and your gangs don��t have creativity. To duplicate methods from Unix is what you like and what
        you are doing.

        Who say you can��t build something on top of a proprietary software? Well, forget you gangs just a bunch of copy-cats and you are now justifying your acts of IP infringements.

        That's exactly what I hear from programmers and admins: They take FOSS code and assemble new tools they need in-house. Sometimes they submit bug-reports or code to the author/maintainer to avoid additional patching work for them when the next version is released.
        They don't want to destroy commertial software, but when companys dont't fix their broken code or don't add features they need they have no choice but to halt development or go with FOSS they can adept to their requirements.

      Well, someone came up with a new plan last night...they feeeel those that have the power to patent are "know nothings" so they feeeel the need to staff the patent office with staffing of their own. That means that linux cultist would threaten, intimidate, gain access to patent office secrets and computers, cause their own terrorizing in the patent office.

      Not to mention the fact the linux chained gang is jealous that others more competent than they are able to whip up a product overnight, sometimes in a weekend, and they just don't think that is f a i r. It should be paistaking and take an eternity to come up with a patent candidate. Why, with their view of potential there are only so many products that are possible and we may run out of ideas and that will be the end of patents, and they may not have gotten in their f a i r (pray tell however many that may be!)share.

      after leaking MSFT source code, dancing and celebrating over their sister spread of 'My Dum' and free software flopping - whats next?

      cyber terror will strike focused grouops.

      Wouldn't you think they would realize they do more harm to their cause than good. That if they were not acting in bad faith they would have surpassed their goals.

        Well that's okay. Who? I think there might be a few exceptions. Ah. Tell me, where would you like to live?

        All of them? What about it? I think there might be a few exceptions. I don't get you, sorry.. But please don't get mad. :-P

        Oh, you are a poet.


        >after leaking MSFT source code, dancing and celebrating over their sister spread of 'My Dum' and free software flopping - whats next?

        What was it like before leaking msft source code dancing and celebrating over their sister spread of `your dum` and free software flopping - what is next ?


        >cyber terror will strike focused grouops.

        Huh... Interesting...


        >Wouldn't you think they would realize they do more harm to their cause than good. That if they were not acting in bad faith they would have surpassed their goals.

        I'm not sure I'd like to think they would realize they do more harm to their cause than good. Does that make sense?

    • >Dun needalawyer tell wad freesoftware z

      Do you prefer books or TV?


      >Ever heard of a good programmer likes the idea of free software except the Linux gang

      Is the feeling mutual? I think if software is a lot of things. Who do you think? Nobody at all?


      >If all software are free, bad programmers (hobbyists) software industry drive out good, professional programmers

      But not all of them are.

      What kind of people are you talking about? Huh... Really? Sounds like a reputable make to me. :)

    • My minions are hard at work today!

      Notice how my brother here turns the table on the LINFIDELS and calls them 'terrorists'. I encourage all of my faithful mujihadeen to follow the example set by "just_bs2000".

      Notice how my faithful brother says that no one writes good free software. It is important for us never to allow any contradictory evidence such as the Apache webserver or any other commonly used free software.

      Please, my brother, do not let the facts deter you from the jihad.
