Linux Needs More Haters!

Filed under: General Linux — TheLinuxBlog.com at 1:54 pm on Friday, July 18, 2008

In response to Jeremy Allison from ZDNet’s Blogs who claims not to be a blogger! Sorry, I thought about saying I have a “column” too but it just doesn’t work when you have “blog” in your URL. But onto the main topic of this post: LinuxHater!

I’m read linuxhater and I’m still a luser. Linux is the operating system that people love to hate. If you haven’t ever read http://linuxhater.blogspot.com before I’d give it a look. Its a great read, and I don’t think that Linux users should take it to heart, I can understand that some people may get upset from the effort that they personally put into a project, but if your not willing to admit your flaws where is the room for growth?

To improve criticism is needed and the LinuxHater blog definitely has lots to say and doesn’t always go about discussing the issues in a dignified way, but if you read it in good fun its great!

KDE Wall Paper Contest

Filed under: General Linux — TheLinuxBlog.com at 8:56 am on Thursday, August 2, 2007

A wall paper contest was posted this morning on Digg and many other blogs. The contest is simple, upload wall papers that you created and you have the possibility of getting them included in the next release of KDE.

After viewing the blog and homepage of the link submitted in the article, I was a bit skeptical as to whether this was just a scheme for a blogger to get some publicity, so I did some research. Turns out that Riccardo Laconelli is not listed in the main credits for the KDE project, but is listed in the KDE lists [lists.kde.org]. It also seems as if he is the developer of the Oxygen theme and has committed various icons to the KDE project.

Should you participate in this contest?

I believe if you have any artistic skills that you should design a wall paper and submit it to the competition. For your efforts you may have your wall paper included one of the most popular window managers and it will make you feel good for contributing. If you enter the competition and your entries are not specific to KDE I urge you to also post your wallpapers on your own site/blog/photo gallery and other Linux wall paper sites. Some people like to be able to use wall papers on other window managers. If I had any artistic skills I would most defiantly be entering this competition myself.
