    I thought I would make this thread to give people some funny names I use for non-free softwares, to surprise my Windows and Mac user friends and maybe even convince them to think about trying some open source software once and a while. Personally, I have had very little success, though I can sometimes convince people IRL to switch to from Google to Duckduckgo search engine. This thread is just for fun though. Feel free to contribute 😛

    Google –> Shitgle (yes, I’m a very mature person)
    Google Chrome –> Shitgle Crimes Against Humanity
    Microsoft Skype –> Microsoft SKYNET
    EA Origin Client –> EA Original Sin
    Non-free software (generic) –> WrongedWare

    One of my favorite ones from Richard Stallman: The Amazon Swindle
    I like to make fun of the free software community sometimes too. Like I will call the GNU GPL license the Marxism-Leninism-Stallmanism License, Or Socialism in One License xD

    Nastygram is still a mean personal letter or email to me, but Young Friend thought it would be appropriate for Instagram.

    I say Amazon Swindle and B&N Crook. I can’t remember if “Crook” is from rms or my own twisted mind.

    Crapple makes eye pads–I hate those things so much I can’t possibly talk about them without puerile scatalogical humour.

    Having loved and dabbled in antiX for a long time, I find that I still have so very much to learn and that learning is so very enjoyable.

    that life could still turn out to be something beautiful or at least meaningful.

    Me? Being diagonally parked in a parallel universe.
    I know better times are ahead.

    But.

    I am comfy cozy dealing with time’s I am already dealing with. I recognize you from LQ forums NOS.
    Glad you made it here.
    Howdy and Welcome.

    My IBM T23 and Panasonic CF-48 are still on the shelf. Posting this on my AntiX Chromebook.
    I have spent weeks dialing in AntiX to that IBM T23 during Beta testing.

    So members don’t have to. Vesa seems to rule with the newer versions of Xorg cuz Xorg expects legacy gear driver developers to inform them when they upgrade their drivers.

    So I find. Use a older Xorg version and pin it. Or run Vesa. I/m lazy. I chose vesa.

    Edit: My mind was in the old computer thread. Hence my above post.

    Yea, I’m still around. 🙂

    My T20 is fine but my T43 is having some hard drive issues right now so I’m just running off the second hard drive caddy in the superbay and making do without an optical drive or running off USB/DVD.

    It’s time to start enjoying them more and letting the young ‘uns and the less exhausted spin the world.
