Irony

With the introduction of the new theme for Ubuntu 10.04 there has been much controversy over the placement of the window management buttons. A lot of people (or perhaps a small but very loud group of people) have complained about how the positioning on the left is bad. The thing is another major OS places its window management buttons on the left; OS X. I’m positive that Apple put a lot of usability research into the placement of those buttons. There’s no way the developers just arbitrarily placed the buttons on the left. But that’s besides the point of this post. What I find kind of ironic amongst all of the complaining is the most downloaded theme on gnome-look.org is this theme. And guess where the buttons are placed. That’s right, on the left. If buttons on the left are so bad, why do so many people want them? Just sayin’.

Wow! Windows Vista!!

I just bought Vista Ultimate and I must say it p0wns Linux. It’s better in every aspect, even security! It’s got a much better implementation of sudo called UAC. I love it. It makes sure I don’t accidentally do something to my system or install rogue software. Whoever says UAC is annoying should check out sudo, now that’s annoying. And the Aero interface, wow! Aero totally owns Compiz Fusion. I mean just look at this blurry shiny glassy interface, there’s nothing like it! And when it comes to hardware, nothing beats Vista. And I can get my work done so much faster with Vista. And I find the EULA much better than the GPL. I’m sorry but Linux isn’t ready for the desktop. I’m going back to Windows.

I Love These Things

Whenever this happens it gives me a good laugh. I was browsing around when this popped up:

😆

So I tried to close it and then this popped up:

(sheesh, this thing won’t go away 😛 )

Then when I clicked Cancel another window popped up:

It finally went away after that. It’s funny that they assume everyone runs Windows. Proof that these things don’t actually scan anything and are pure scams.
