RIM: Not Going to Make It

Poor RIM the makers of the once popular BlackBerry is going through some rough times. Only they are to blame, instead of embracing the Android operating system, they instead decided to stick with there old and outdated platform. As soon as they realized their proprietary operating system was outdated; instead of embracing Android they decide to write a new proprietary operating system.

Does HP Really Disappoint with WebOS

Did anyone really expect any other result? HP has been known for taking great things and messing them up really bad, just like Oracle, Apple, and Microsoft.  Why this happens, I do not know.  Maybe the CEO's of these large corporations are not seeing the bigger picture.  However, HP really is very bad at almost everything (except for laser printers).  I've said it before, and I'll say it again, when HP bought Palm, I knew it was all over.

Ubuntu Loses it Lead, Now #2

Ubuntu Linux is no longer number 1. Today I noticed on Distro Watch (a website that tracks Linux popularity) that Ubuntu has given up it's #1 spot to Linux Mint. This should come at no surprise to anyone who has kept up with the latest developments this past year. Since dropping support for full desktop computers and targeting small screen devices with their "Unity" desktop environment, Ubuntu has lost users in flocks.

Goodbye Ubuntu

Ubuntu 11.10 has been out for a while, so far I hate it.  I upgraded my desktop computer from 11.04 (which I also disliked).  When I use the new Unity desktop environment I feel limited.  Simple tasks like opening a program and browsing my files feel more like a chore.  It's very difficult to multitask and get my work done with the new Unity interface.  My 23 inch screen multi-CPU desktop computer feels like a tiny 5 inch net-book.

.NET is Going Away

I've have been saying for years that anyone investing time, money, or skills in .NET was foolish.  I feel no sympathy for any .NET developer who will one day find themselves obsolete.

MySQL Server on Ubuntu Linux Server

I've been using Ubuntu Linux server since version 8.04 LTS.  On this server I ran several hundred websites with MySQL databases.  The server was a virtual machine and it ran well.  One day I upgrade this (supposedly) perfect server to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, oh what a bad move that was.

The Failure that is Linux

Operating systems such as Ubuntu, RedHat, Fedora, Suse, Mint, or Centos can never replace a Windows or Macintosh system.  As much as I wish Linux was a serious operating system, it simply is untrue.
