The FOSS world must understand “just install Linux” won’t cut it. We must make “the whole widget” as Jobs would say.
But don’t listen to me, let Stallman make the case:
Richard: I’ve never installed the GNU plus Linux system on a computer myself.
Richard: I always found someone who knew how to do that. Got someone to do it for me.
Me: So it was so difficult that you have not installed…
Richard: No, it's just that I was so busy, I didn’t wanna learn how.
@kingannoy I mean I understand that all this computer stuff + accurate communication is complicated but djeez, repeating over and over "what do you mean by 'it's not working'" and discovering 10 minutes later that it was not even related to what people really wanted to achieve makes me want to glue http://xyproblem.info/ to people's face :/
You know how the DMV usually has this letter/number system to call you to the front?
So... I get really bored waiting to get called. To liven things up, I bring a bingo card and some little carnival toys (finger puppets and the like). Whenever my number gets called, I yell "Bingo! I won DMV Bingo!", skitter up to the front, and hand my clerk a prize. Sometimes I give out prizes and cards to anyone else who looks bored as well, so they can participate as well.
This is a interesting idea, we could use more wistleblowers from the private sector!
fair enough but honestly I think they should make computers HARDER to use because *gestures generally at the internet*
@trickster it's just genuinely never been a problem? i don't do much on that laptop really. like i know i need to sort it out at some point, but every time i try i fail to get it working. sometimes it's easier to just download the windows version of the software and run it in WINE
you: my ideal user interface?? well it's like a High Fantasy novel, only i type words at a prompt and the author types back to me. i remember the names of all 2,000 characters in the book and their family trees, alignments and skill points
me: my ideal user interface?? is me doing fucking parkour at 760 miles per hour in a huge 3D environment filled with buttons and diagrams that represent the task i'm doing, and also sometimes i turn into a space ship and its like the video game Descent II
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
