SUSE Linux Rants

by @ 7:18 am. Filed under My Opinion, SUSE Blog News

Alright. Here is my final offer of peace: I was testing out the whole “I’m writing satire, and just trying to push your buttons” thing. Believe me, if you can find something in this world that I care less about than who uses what desktop environment, I will give you 20 bucks. Go ahead and use Gnome if that’s what does it for you. If you want to freaking use an Etch-A-Sketch, be my guest. Use a chisel. Use sidewalk chalk. Heh, I had no idea that a such a little post could raise so many hairs. Next time, I’ll have to go extreme, baby.

Well, I wanted to congratulate Seprian again on winning the Logo competition. I got some nice, hi-res versions of his artwork. Very nice. I really like it. I actually liked a bunch of them, and had to resort to other criteria to choose the very best one. I wanted to thank Steve for donating half of the prize money. Just call that boy “moneybags.” Thanks, Steve. Seprian appreciates it, bro. So do I. Maybe we should get all emotional, turn the lights off, light some candles, and have a moment of silence in reverent appreciation. Later (sometime between right now and the time that the sun burns out), I will post up some cool stuff with the logo on them. Like I think I’ll probably put up T-Shirts, at least. Maybe now that my poll proves that more people like KDE than Gnome, I’ll change it to see what stuff people would like to see the logo on.

I bet that, by the time you read this, SUSE 10.1 is released. If so, send everyone the download link. When they install it, tell them to pick KDE.

    Yeah, I don’t know what is going on with that. I’ll take a look and see if I can’t find some other d/l mirror or something. Unless someone beats me to it.

    Hmmm… I might take a swing at that one (hey… i’m a student…) 😛

    votes for items you might care less about:
    A) the anatomy of an ant
    B) how many stuffed animals exist in the world
    C) me

    Um… I will reply to you via email. 🙂

    C’mon, Scott, you didn’t expect people to be rational about their *desktop* did you? This is religion, and religion is not to be trifled with – not even satirized.

    Anyway, nice writing.
