re: Google +

Yeah, lets all be unique TOGETHER.

What a bunch of sheeple.

Did they learn nothing since AOL?

Or how music has all turned to crap now that most radio stations are owned by a handful of companies.

Before this social media cluster frack, sites worked on their own branding. Now like mindless drones all their efforts are going towards building the social media's brand.

What a bunch of morons. Good luck living with someone elses decisions, this is just the tip of the iceberg until it's all just one big website.

Have fun differentiating your market share then.

We’re At Google+

We have a google page for PCLinuxOS. http://goo.gl/QdZnz

I see other distros there too.

Say Baaaaaaaaaaaaaa

google+ is cool

I can see why you would not use any social media being so anti-social. hahahaha

Google Plus is okay.

My LUG starting using Google plus after the one guy in the group with social skills moved away. Now every meeting has a "Hangout" element, and it's made our meetings a lot more lively, as people from all over join in. It became even more important when area flooding damaged the building where we have our meetings.

A friend died last week, and as I helped his sister make the arrangements, I discovered a funeral home that has a page on Facebook.

There are good and bad uses of social media, and i think we'll be sorting them out for a long time.

Munich Switching to Windows from Linux Is Proof That Microsoft Is Still an Evil Company

Reports about the city of Munich authorities that are considering the replacement of Linux with Microsoft products mostly comes from one man, the Deputy Mayor of Munich, who is also a long-term self-declared Windows fan. Munich is the poster child for the adoption of a Linux distribution and the replacement of the old Windows OS. It provided a powerful incentive for other cities to do the same, and it's been a thorn in Microsoft's side for a very long time. The adoption of open source software in Munich started back in 2004 and it took the local authorities over 10 years to finish the process. It's a big infrastructure, but in the end they managed to do it. As you can imagine, Microsoft was not happy about it. Even the CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, tried to stop the switch to Linux, but he was too late to the party. Read more

Dangling the Linux Carrot

Sometimes the direct sell method isn’t the best way to close the deal. How do you think the whole “play hard to get” thing got traction throughout the years? That method is successful in any number of applications. And really, I wasn’t wearing my Linux Advocacy hat that evening…I was just a guy relaxing after a day’s work. Read more
