Linux > Windows?…  My ass it is!

Linux Sucks

Linus Torvalds can suck it! I’ve had about enough of this damned OS; I’m ready to make the switch back to Windows. Yes, I understand the increased security of Linux, and yes, I do enjoy learning new things (e.g. installing via the Terminal), but all malware infections aside, Windows XP is a far more stable operating system than Ubuntu Linux. I do believe I will dual-boot XP/Vista and some form of Linux when I get my own computer, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to turn into some tux-loving, single-minded, hippie, liberal jackass! Microsoft must hold the majority for a reason.

Military Tux

I can’t believe I’m actually typing this, but I’m posting from an Ubuntu Linux computer… my Ubuntu Linux computer! Aside from surfing on Firefox, I have no frickin’ clue what I’m doing. The interface is somewhat like the Windows I know and love, but I must say, I’m very confused. This had better be good practice for college. I think that I’ll get used to this OS about 10 minutes before Matt finds a copy of XP with a key. Unless we have a new hard drive by then, I’ll be kissing Ubuntu good-bye for a while. Speaking of good-byes, I need to update some software right now, and that software includes Firefox, so I should probably stop posting now. Hopefully the posts will be more regular now. Later.

“Prepare for a pride-obliterating bitchslap!”

Ignignokt, Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Man that took a while.  I apologize for the long wait, but I’ve been spending less time at the Reidy’s house.  I’m at Mark’s house now.  R.I.T. was a sweet.  I learned all sorts of crap about computer science and information science.  We got to go inside a “clean room.”  It was really cool, except that the cleaner in the air irritated my eyes.  There was a kid there who was afraid of going inside because of microchip dust or some other crazy shit.  I was more concerned about the giant tank of liquid nitrogen just sitting outside of the building.

I’ve really been watching more Aqua Teen Hunger Force; that show is awesome.  I think Adult Swim needs it’s own channel.

“The four building blocks of the universe are fire, water, gravel, and vinyl.”

Dave Barry

I go off to R.I.T. (Rochester Institute of Technology) tomorrow to visit the campus.  I get to find out if software design is what I really want to do, or if I’ve wasted all of my life so far.  Hopefully I’ll have a blast; I think I will.
