A while ago, a friend suggested that I try out Linux.
I told him to fuck off because I couldn’t be arsed learning all those “grip”, “bash” and “bonk” commands. Commands that mean sweet fuckl all. Why they can’t use simple commands like “find”, “run” or “stop fucking annoying me!”, I don’t know.
Anyway this friend persisted and just to shut him up I installed Linux Mint. I chose that one because apparently it’s Irish and it costs nothing.
I find this hard to understand, but I’m actually getting quite used to it. It runs smoothly and quickly and in general, it does what I ask of it without complaint or moan.
One thing about it that really pisses me off is that I can’t get my microphone to work. God knows, it took me long enough to get the fecking speakers to work. I asked the Other Fella for a handout, but he said he knew nothing about Linux, the bastard.
The other thing that reeeeally pisses me up to the hilt is that it doesn’t have Windows Live Writer on it. I like WLW and it is one of those extremely rare beasts – something good that Microsoft has done. Why doesn’t Linux have WLW?
I have mentioned some wee problems in the past that I had been having with Windows, and whenever I did, I always got some fucking smart arse telling me to use Linux. OK. I am using it. So where are the smart arses now? Instead of heckling me, why aren’t they doing something useful like writing a Windows Live Writer that will work in Linux? I don’t like using Word Press to write my scribbles. I want to use something better. WLW used to do the job very nicely, but now I can’t use it. I’m using a thing called Scribefire which sort of half does the job with a great deal of reluctance [which reminds me of a few tradesmen I know] and it is pissing me off.
So here is your challenge, Arseholes. Let’s see you produce something decent for me.
And if you can’t, stop gloating on about Linux.
