the eventual gavel of doom that Micro$oft will bring down in ending support to MS-DOS
It's Microsoft, or MS, or MSFT if you need to abbreviate. It is NOT Microsucks, Micro$oft, or M$. If you are one of the mountains of morons that uses the aforementioned nomenclature take notice: You are definitely not smart, clever, funny and especially not original. People have been using the '$' as a derogative in the Microsoft name since the dawn of internet time. I'm not saying that you shouldn't dislike Microsoft. Not at all, that's your opinion. But please keep it to yourself, unless you're going to be sensible about it.
So, please, stop, it makes you looks like a fucking idiot. I swear if I see another forum post with M$ or Micro$oft in it I'm going to hunt down the offending moron and beat them.
As for the quote above, the only reason I even went to read it is because it was titled "Trying to move from DOS to Windows Arrrrg!" and all I could think was "Who the fuck is still using MS-DOS after all this time??" But when I saw the '$' I stopped reading and felt that this person wasn't smart enough to even be anywhere near a computer. And I feel that way whenever I see anything written in such a manner.
This brings me to another rant about idiots: The first article from a couple of weeks ago on linux game development which opened up with diatribe on how linux was SOOO much better than windows... guess what:
Moronic statement from linux article
For those of you who may not know, Linux is a free operating system originally created by Linus Torvalds and developed with the assistance of programmers around the world. It is an alternative to other operating systems like Windows. It is tremendously stable, very reliable, and much more secure than Windows. Linux also offers several different file systems, like ReiserFS and XFS, which are noticeably faster than FAT32 or NTFS on Windows.
I've bolded the part that really, really, really is NOT necessary.
Stop trying to ram your fucking pathetic ideology down my throat. If you're going to write an article on linux game development, write about just that. LINUX GAME DEVELOPMENT. Not what makes linux so much better than windows. I use windows, I develop stuff on windows, so if you're going to try and make me at least even TRY to develop on another platform don't tell me why windows sucks compared to linux! It has NOTHING to do with developing a game on linux (no, really, it doesn't and if you believe otherwise you need your head examined). After all, if I'm already reading your shitty article, then you've already got my attention. I'm not a fish, I don't need to be 'reeled' in. Seriously GD.NET staff, what the fuck were you thinking approving that article?
OK, my blood pressure is good and high now, so I'm leaving. Feel free to tell me how I'm wrong.
