There is no realy monetary gain in hacking linux, "outside of bank systems etc"and the only reason most avoid it, is becuase theres no particular version to hack. The diversity makes it secure, not the code itself. I'd lay odds that the linux OS ecosystem code base is a far clunkier mess of shit then most any closed source system.
Man, you must lead such a sad life.
Just came upon this link today, describing the use of Linux at CERN, http://www.ubuntuvibes.com/2012/07/l...discovery.html
I agree that it's a strange game, and I'd be terrified if I were forced to play.
First, let me start off by saying that, through your lack of presentable facts and hastened, disorganized conclusions, I can reasonably say that it seems apparent as if I am conversing with a child on this subject matter. The absurdity of your conclusions and the audacity of your arguments, substantiated by nothing more than mere propagandistic and uncertain theories, continually portray a sentiment based on little knowledge or foresight, and were this analytical approach taken to political discussion, I assure you that you would most likely be labeled as a conspiracy theorist.
Perhaps you'd benefit from understanding the difference between an assumption and a fact. Nevertheless, I guess I'll still be taking my time to respond to your ridiculous rantings...
For your sake, I hope you adopt a more broad perspective in your outlook on politics. It's highly probably that the minister simply resigned in protest to only the adoption of a Microsoft solution over a Linux one, on a technologically-ideological basis (and not a belief in corruption). In fact, if you reread part of the article...
...you can see that he's more concerned about the ability for Russian programmers to benefit from a Russian-made operating system. It doesn't seem like he's concerned with the fact that it's just something by Microsoft, and he even lumps Google and other "tech giants" in there, too.Originally Posted by Original Article Source
Says whom ? You don't know what I do and don't know.Hah, coming from a guy who doesn't even know how to code?
I can pass judgement fiarly easily, they turn out a polished product, most closed studios. Obviously code quality is superior becuase people are even willing to pay for the privilage of using that software. But hey, code quality must all be orginizational right ? I mean commenting, code style etc ? Thats the hallmark of quality ? not really. Show me one competitng program thats open source that sucessfully competes with a closed source product ?Now I would not pass any judgement on the code quality of closed systems as I've had no chance to examine it, however I've seen nothing indicating it would be of any less quality than that of 'proprietary systems'. Given how Linux is totally dominating in hpc / supercomputers, used heavily in stock markets, military, industrial settings, embedded, servers then I'd say it having great code quality is a given. But please, if you can point to any code in the Linux kernel tree which is of poor code quality, please do so.
Again I can't fathom what drives people like you, I mean you don't like using Linux, that's perfectly fine. I don't particularly like using Windows but I would never waste one second of my life running around on forums attacking it, or by making up lies, I simply don't use it.
But then we have guys like you, you've spread countless lies about Linux over at Haiku.org which have done nothing but highlight your ignorance and now you come here (and likely other places I'm not aware of), a Linux-centric site and continue to spread these same lies. Is it a mental disorder or do you simply have nothing more meaningful to do with your life than to make up lies about a system you are not even interested in using?
Seriously, put your energy to something creative, learn to code and write something for Haiku for instance, liking Haiku is the one thing we agree on so why not spend your time on furthering it's useability?
