Q: What do you do when your hardware doesn’t work with Linux?

A: Throw it in the bin and get something that works with the OS.

No, really!

The thread made me facepalm. That’s not exactly an obscure bit of hardware. It should not come to the point when users feel forced to replace their hardware because the maintainers are too proud to fix their crappy software so it works. I myself have encountered the suggestion I get a new network card because Ubuntu doesn’t support my wireless. Um, I think not. I’m not going to fork out for new bits of hardware because Ubuntu drops support for the stuff I’ve just bought next release because the maintainers and programmers are incompetent fools. No. Instead I will go back and use Windows, and your weird little agenda will backfire, Ubuntards and Lintards.

On the positive side, it’s one less dumpster-dive available to Helios in Austin — because we already know that Linux doesn’t work on those mother*boards.

It’s things like this that warm the cockles of my heart.

Personally, I think he should have just rewritten all the nicely-indented Python scripts until the sound system worked, but then I’m old-fashioned about these things.
