    I swear to god if you keep posting articles that are links to Phoronix I'm going to firewall off your site and never visit again.

    How about you link to the real source (mailing lists, official Debian website) instead of sending traffic to Michael Larabel's bullshit ramblings about LOONIX NEWS that he can't even properly comprehend let alone summarize 95% of the time.

    Phoronix isn't exactly a good news site. Nevertheless, it's probably the only site that does Linux hardware reviews, follows the progress of various open source initiatives and does that having a single semi-journalist. Good, properly staffed computer news sites out there like Anand and Tom's Hardware completely ignore Linux, Unix, BSD and what have you, therefore, inaccurate as it can be, Phoronix is the best source of information we have. Plus, bitching about inaccuracies on slashdot is borderline hilarious. This is the holy grail of fabricated flamebaits.

    Yeah because registering a throwaway email to reply to some dipshit named "Drinkypoo" totally isn't a waste of time.

    If you need a username attached to an idea to take it seriously, you're a fucking idiot who is full of shit.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
