Thank you for at least trying to get Chris to see things outside his little world. While I listen to LAS, Since Matt is gone, I really don’t like the direction of the show. I am so tired of hearing about Arch, Ubuntu, gnome. There are many distros, but what I’m starting to see, Is Chris really doesn’t have the tech skills to properly troubleshoot a problem. He is more of a programmer, Than a tech.
To me, if you can’t resolve issues in Linux, Then I really have a hard time with you calling yourself a linux guru. I understand those who are basic Users and don’t want to get into the meat and potatoes of Linux. But if you are going to be on a podcast and present yourself as a spokesperson for Linux and act like you know so much about it, Why can’t you get your sound to work, Or fix BTFS errors, especially if you say it’s the best thing out there?
I guess the real issue with me is, if you are going to be a journalist, then keep your personal preferences out of the story and do stories about ALL of linux and not just your little favs. This shows me that he only focuses on the products that their sponsors tell them to focus on.
Netrunner so far has been great, KDE is my favorite DE, but being a tech of over 20yrs, I have tried and used gnome,xfce,elightment,cinnamon and mate, I have also used slackware, debian, Suse, Opensuse,Redhat,fedora,mint,SolydXK and a whole host of others. Some I could get to work, and some I just didn’t have enough knowledge or patience to get it to work, but at least I tried.
I don’t mean to be offensive or mean toward LAS, But I’m starting to not like Chris very much because he is very opinionated and always seems to make excuses for Ubuntu and Mark Shuttleworth even though it is clear they are very proprietary and they really don’t have linux at the forfront of there business. The issue with Jonathan Riddell is a perfect example of that. Popey who is always on the show, has a true hatred for KDE and states he can’t figure out how to use it properly, that it’s too hard for him. For someone who calls himself a developer and can’t figure out a DE, Scare the crap out of me, and maybe he should rethink his line of work.
Well enough of my soapbox, It’s been great talking to you Orb, hope to speak with you more often. Do you still drop by SolydXK, they seem to be improving all the time and having fun doing it!
