Is open source one of Alien strategies?

This post is purely for fun :) no offense meant. This is just one of those random thoughts that doesn't mean anything at all.

Thinking about the time nowadays, I have to say I had become too obsessed with linux and its technologies. Slight introspection into the amount of time spent reveals that I am spending most of my free time(ofcourse apart from the work timings which is very productive with linux) reading new linux technologies. Damn Google reader.. :( It is one of those applications I check all the time craving for new releases/news. And even then I am not satisfied and browse for more. Yay, "Yeah dhil maange more". I had also become a member of and twitter. Going through the amount of updates and other blogs, I am pretty sure that I am not the only one :)

Might be introducing linux is one of those alien strategies who want the geeks(now I am not saying I am a geek :) ) to spend most of their time like this. Might be it is another way for aliens to dominate productive minds to make sure enough time is spent on opensource ;) who knows?? May be the whole opensource is a part of alien strategy..

Dhoni Sucks!!

Dhoni - The worst thing that could have happend to India/Chennai super kings in recent times. He is nothing more than a selfish batsman. The only thing that keeps him going is "luck". Why will anyone go in at no. 2 down when Hayden and even parthiv were smashing and bring all the momentum to an entire halt? This is not just about CSK Vs Delhi daredevils match on 23/04/2009, This even happens in the Indian team and the only thing that allows him to do so is the captaincy. By going in at no.2 what he is doing to the confidence/carreer/technique of batsman going regularly at no.2. And the worst thing is that he is not even keeping the momentum going. I am sure Badrinath from chennai/Suresh raina in Indian team can preserve losing of wickets better than him. Then what the hell is he doing at no:2 hiding behind the momentum built by hayden or sehwag/gambhir? one word to describe - "selfish"

Shift to Open source softwares!!

happened to post a couple of comments in

hmm y do I get the imagination that photoshop magically ships you to mars and Windows to Pluto?? Are you saying that no people wished any extra features in Photoshop/Windows? As a matter of fact they do.. infact every software will have points to improve on. otherwise it will be doomed as dead!! So you noticed a missing feature in a YYY software, and what did you do? rant in this article.. :) I must say that is an efficient way of improving the software YYY.. Did you ever considered sending a bugreport/wishlist to the authors? I see feedback as the only way to improve a software. It will not be granted by thy lord as you wish from heaven. I am not saying every wishlist will be provided for the releases but atleast it will act as a channel for communicating to the developer. But you can be sure that the bugreports will be fixed soon(if you are lucky and the problem is critical might be next release who knows?). After all its the communities that give larger support.

I do find a lot of report saying I can shift to linux because of blah blah..
I think some analogies can do a bit here:

Linux is just like learning UK english when u know US english already. They are not drastically different, but just in some subtle ways. If you want to goto England you just have to express certain things as in England. Its ridiculous to say that you will not go to England just because you do some things differently.

Linux is like going to a city from a remote forests. If you dont need sophisticated technologies, people who hear to your wishes, fine you can stay in the forest. No one forces you out of there :). This is just for people who want to get into city. Saying others that city has monsters does not make sense.

Linux is moving to democracy from dictatorship. If you want dictatorship, you will get it :). But remember democracy is where people get to vote for their wishlists and the softwares they want :) unlike the software dictator wants to force into his reign.

The truth Linux is more than ready for desktop shift and I can do hell lot of things that I cant in its competitors. I do find it more productive. It will need more than just mindless rants
