"Why Linux sucks" - Bryan Lunduke at LinuxFest Northwest
 
While reading about the Manjaro non-event I watched this video Linux Sucks and summarized the contents. Interesting because, in my opinion, he basically says Linux succeeds because people think it is cool.

Bad
3 mins - forking is dumb
5 mins - the display server X.Org is ooooold
7 mins - replacing good working software with nearly identical software ie as Canonical does
9 mins - the names suck, e.g Utopic Unicorn, blame Fedora and Ubuntu
10 mins - heaps of unmanaged developers produce heaps of unmanaged code - who manages it?
12 mins - get paid -> get power -> get wacky
15 mins - trends based on distrowatch numbers
- the landscape changes very quickly in 1-2 years e.g. interest in elementary takes off and passes Fedora;
19 ins - 1-2 releases per distro per year so lots of duplication of effort and lots of boring repackaging that contributes nothing to advancing *nix

Good
22 mins The community - even forks often get rationalised when one fork dominates and the others are rolled back to using it
26 mins - Hardware issues are getting dealt with
27 mins - Wayland display server needs to be right so take time
32 mins - unmanaged developers make code that works even though rationally it
shouldn't
44 mins - Linux is cool

Someone forgot that it was free and not just one O.S but a collection of them available..

My summary grossly simplifies what he talks about.

I was talking about him not you :) I just read the thread title...Let me just see the video

It took me a minute to work that out. But I meant that he actually talks a lot about Linux being free and developers working for free. He spends quite a few minutes talking about the many distributions that are available - he has about 16 on one graph.

"Software x is old!
Software y is new but does the same!
Both suck!"
