"It would seem Linux users can't catch a break. Every year,
blow-hard journalists will try out a Linux LiveCD, decide it's
actually worthwhile, and declare date +%Y to be the year of Linux
on the Desktop, only to run around screaming about how Linux isn't
ready for mainstream users after they manage to screw their system
over while fiddling with sudo.
"Combine that with the fact that the majority of journalists who
do routinely cover Linux do so as an off-shoot of their Windows
coverage, and thusly you end up with ignorant writers "informing"
the masses. There are precious few good sources of Linux news
(cough, lwn.net), yet a truly staggering amount of shoddy
"So, here we have member of the Linux community that's dripping
with contempt for people who cover technology that aren't as expert
as they are."
