Arch Linux Elitism

It's been said that Arch Linux users are elitist. This mostly stems from Arch's keep core simple principle, and an expectation that users should do some research and checking before posting support requests in their forum. (And really, is that too much to ask?)

Gnome3 - the Antithesis of Productivity

As a Gnome user, I've been reading about the Gnome3/Gnome Shell release and decided to see for myself. I downloaded the Fedora 15 Alpha release with Gnome 2.91.6 and after a bit, i came to this conclusion:

Gnome3 is the antithesis of productivity.

My main issue with Gnome3 comes from the Gnome Wiki page GNOME Shell Design FAQ

Archlinux forums untrusted?

Decided to visit the Arch Linux website forum and I get a message in Firefox saying it's Untrusted.

Arch Linux, not trusted? It never cheated on me, or stole money from me, or drank all my beer. And sure, it's a pain in the ass to get to know. But not trustworthy? Never! (Sure, it's cousin Chakra Linux has been sleeping around, but that's another story.)

So do I click "I Understand the Risks" or not?

One Year With Ubuntu

Can you really go a year without Windows? (Microsoft Windows, I mean.)

daboss Is going to try. (The Link.)

From his site: "I am not a Windows hater. But faced with the prospect of shelling out the dough for Vista, I got curious - could I do everything I could in Windows with Open Source software? Find out as I try to go a year without Windows and embrace Ubuntu. As an added bonus, I will be documenting each step of my installation and configuration so you won't have to go searching the internet for solutions!"
