Digg: The Red(mond) Army Strikes Again! OH NOES!

Momsshizzle might seem like a normal Digg user. (Yeah, right...) Except that he has no friends (according to Digg, that is, and probably in real life). Except for his deceptive avatar of Firefox munching away on the IE6 logo. Except that it looks like his only purpose is to post something along the lines of "Linsux linsux linsux. Linsux. LIIIIINSUUUUX!!!!!11111oneoneone" on any Linux-related article he finds. You see, momsshizzle is part of Microsoft's growing botnet of poor souls on Digg who post crap in any Linux-related articles they find.
I'm guessing Microsoft pays him to do it, and it's obvious why: there's no other reason.
Really, if he was a Windows fanboy, you'd think he'd have an intelligent argument ready (or maybe not...). Maybe he was trying to start a meme. If that's the case, congratulations, momssshizzle, you just killed your own meme. Nice job! But really, what could make a human being give up all their dignity by making posts that skull-crushingly lame and pointless other than money?
These people need to learn that there are better ways of making money than sucking up to Microsoft and talking crap about an OS they've obviously never used before. How's this for an idea: Actually try "Linsux" out (GASP!!!), blog about it, and make some money off the ad revenue. Oh, Microsoft's paying you not to use it so that you never learn anything about it that might (shudder at the thought) change your opinion? OK, your loss.
And momsshizzle, if you're reading this, and you post a comment, if you use the word "Linsux", it will be deleted on sight. It was kind-of-sort-of funny the first 42 times you said it, but move on. Your little meme failed.
To the rest of the botnet, quoting Linus himself: "Put up or shut up."
From MEPIS 7.0(still!)-rc2,
The DistRogue.

Well, that's the problem: with an anonymous identity you start off without dignity.

Anyway, someone should start a distro called Linsux just to be able to say something witty to comments like that :P

And intentionally make it hard to use and give it virtually zero hardware detection. Then we'd have a perfect scapegoat. "Yes, I KNOW Linsux is hard to use. But there's a live CD available..."

Haha, yeah, that would be awesome :P

After trying out PCLOS2008 MiniMe, I would say I am very impressed. PCLOS2008 Mini is a big improvement over PCLOS2007 because of hardware detection and an upgraded kernal. PCLOS2007 had numerous problems with laptops because of the older kernal, and even on desktops there were bugs. But with PCLOS2008 MiniMe, all those problems seem to be corrected. With the upgraded kernal PCLOS2008 works great...and fast !

As for the artwork, everyone has their own opinion. And I would say it is very distinctive, beautiful, and yes, it does have a similarity to Vista.

Bottom line- I consider PCLOS2008 Mini to be right up there close to Mandriva as the best current Linux based system for the everyday user. Really not much need to wait for the full PCLOS2008 version to be released as all one needs to do is add whatever you want through synaptic on MiniMe.
