Prediction about linux from 1997 (linhell)

20. 11. 2009 22:24 Petr Bláha

Uveřejňuji v orginále co jsem psal včera. Není to žádný Hoax ani jsem si to nevymyslel.
Fakt jsem to našel na disku. Nevím jak se mi to tam dostalo nebo odkud jsem si to tenkrát stáhnul.
Jinak Linux používám denně, přes putty nebo ve wmware playeru, ale ne na desktopu tam mám XPéčka.
Je to sice shit, ale docela to funguje skoro to nepadá. Sice mám na notebooku už nakupnutej IPstack,
ale pokud to ještě funguje tak jsem nepřeinstalovával. Nemám čas se zabývat desktopem.

Linuxu používám pro provoz Firebird databáze Abry a nebo pro vývoj pro PalmOS.
Tam mi stačí příkazová řádka a oblíbený textový editor nano (předtím pico).
Nic víc od toho nepotřebuji!

Každý člověk co dělá v Linuxu mám nějaké distro a vývoj. Můj byl následující:

  • Slackware 3.1 ( první distro přinesl jsem si ho z VSCHT na disketách )
  • Redhat 4.0 ( na servru penguin.vscht.cz )
  • SuSE 6.0,7.0 ( Pracoval jsem přímo v SuSE jako RPM builder )
  • Slackware 8.0–11.0 ( potom co se RedHat změnil jsem se vrátil zpět)
  • Gentoo 2008 ( na tom dělám teď ale není nic ideální něco se prostě nezkompiluje třeba PalmOS SDK takže jsem ho instaloval s RPM binárek )

A co vy jaké je vaše linCV ?

......... tohle by se mělo psát do životopisu a ne nějaký kecy !!!
Linux, the PC program from hell devil
(The Sunday Times, April 20 1997)It is the craze of the month among geeks who love complexity. Avoid it
at all costs.WAS I the only one who broke into a scream of terror when I looked at
this month's copy of Personal Computer World? There, staring out from
a free CD-Rom on the cover was the program from hell, and all you
needed to do to let it take over your PC was double click a couple of
times and kiss goodbye to your sanity.The nasty piece of digital scurf in question is known as Linux and
there are plenty of sad types who will tell you it is the future of
personal computing. Do not fall for this bizarre line in geek
thinking. Even Personal Computer World, after making it so easy to
enter the twilight zone without a return ticket, saw fit to enter a
few caveats in the fine print. Linux, it said, came with a serious
health warning. Don't even think about it, the magazine said, unless
you are technically proficient and have backed up all your PC files
beforehand.Yes, but we know what the average PC user is like. He never reads the
words, he just slings in the CD-Rom, clicks on the install icon, and
hopes for the best. And if you are now looking at a blank screen with
a few impenetrable commands where you once had a working PC, then all
I can say is: „You have only yourself to blame.“Linux, for the uninitiated, is a version of that old computer donkey
known as Unix. If you need to run big computer Unix tasks then it is,
I am told, not a bad solution at all. Equally, if you believe there is
no point in doing easily something you can achieve the long way round,
it is doubtless the way to go.Imagine a tougher version of MS-Dos where the commands are even
harder to memorise and less forgiving of errors and you are starting
to get there. And if you want to cheat a little, you can put on a
pseudo-graphical front end and bingo you might just manage to turn a
modern Windows NT-capable PC into a passable imitation of Windows 3.1
circa 1992.However, to read some publications, you might think that Microsoft's
Bill Gates is quivering in his boots at the idea that Linux will do
what IBM and Apple never managed to achieve kick Windows off the
everyday desktop. Really? Well, no. Linux is flavour of the month with
the geek community for two reasons it's free, and it's not from
Microsoft.For a certain breed of bug-eyed computer user, that really is all you
need. Trivial details such as usability, the lack of decent everyday
software, and the plain fact that, when things go wrong, you are on
your own are not setbacks to Linux addicts.These are the very reasons why they like the wretched thing because
it sets them apart from the mainstream of tedious, ordinary users who
just use PCs to get on with the job.Personal computers seem to have attracted some strange and obsessive
people along the way to becoming common or garden information tools.
If Linux hadn't been invented by a Finnish student a few years back,
something equally strange and esoteric would have appeared to take its
 place.Computer geeks despise simple, common standards. Gates is the object
of their hate simply because he won the operating-system war. If Apple
or IBM had come out on top, the people now buzzing so excitedly around
Linux would have treated them to the hate mail they reserve for Gates
 today.Fads like Linux are diversionary characters in a digital freak show on
the sidelines of modern information technology. Finding them on the
cover disks of mainstream magazines says more about the novelty value
of computer journalism than the real issues facing those trying to
make tomorrow's PCs a sight better than the ones we use today.The idea that great developments in personal computing will be
invented in some dismal student bedroom in Helsinki might make nice
bedtime reading for people who dream in hexa-decimal. But if all you
want is a computer that you can aspire to understand, chuck that
blasted CD-Rom in the bin right now.David Hewson
