Linus Torvalds famous words for KDE

Date: Mon, 12 Dec 2005 17:46:21 -0800 (PST)
"I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE.
This 'users are idiots, and are confused by functionality' mentality of Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will use it. I don't use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do.
Please, just tell people to use KDE."

Don`t Underestimate Chinese,forgive them for Bugs!

I downloaded recently released Red Flag Linux 6.0 "Desktop", a Chinese distribution based on the recently announced Asianux 3.0 server editions and gave it a test install.

I have yet to see any Red Hat based Linux distribution so polished regarding installation, general looks and over all system performance as is Red Flag Linux 6.0 Desktop.

Everything works out of the box , I saw little or no bugs or issues with the whole system.

But then you have to forgive Chinese along with praising them. Their updated package management infrastructure with APT for RPM is a total disaster . It returned with broken packages and when I tried to fix/repair those broken packages APT refused to work altogether.

I wonder if they did any home work before introducing APT into Red Flag Linux 6.0 Desktop as it does not work at all destroying the face of a such a nice desktop Linux distribution.

For details about Red Flag Linux 6.0 Desktop please refer to the notes I picked from

" Red Flag Linux 6.0 "Desktop", a Chinese distribution based on the recently announced Asianux 3.0, has been released. As with any past releases, Red Flag Linux 6.0 continues to focus on providing an easy-to-use desktop that resembles the Windows user interface as much as possible and includes a number of Windows-like utilities. New in this release is the inclusion of 3D desktop features with Beryl, updated package management infrastructure with APT for RPM, automatic dual-boot setup, and multi-language support. The distribution uses the latest 2.6.22 kernel with modules for a large number of modern hardware devices and wireless network cards, as well as read/write support to NTFS file systems. On the desktop, the system is built around X.Org 7.2 and KDE 3.5.7, now with automatic mounting of storage devices, and 2.2. For more details please see the product features page (in Chinese). Red Flag Linux 6.0 is available as a 2-CD image set - an installation CD and an optional "Tools" CD with extra software; both can be downloaded from here: RedFlag-dt6-sys.iso (680MB, MD5), RedFlag-dt6-Tool.iso (587MB, MD5) "

Pashtoons ( Khans )

The Great philosopher Pashto poet Ghani Khan wrote a little skittish poem about Pashtoons that depicts their temperament given below:

The great pot maker of fate was sitting in heaven.

This great potter of fate was making a donkey,

when the order came to make a Khan.

So the potter cut off its tail and sculpted its ears,

on its forehead he put a spot of temper

and in the donkey`s brain he put the disease

of being ahead of everyone, being a leader, and

then he put a beautiful turban on his head and

shooed him towards the world.
