    [rant]Ubuntu hipsters? Really?

    OK, i've heard people bashing Mac users for being hipsters, but now i read about Ubuntu hipsters all over the place. So now i see all types of memes going around, from 'u use windows, that's mainstream, i use ubuntu', to 'u use ubuntu, that's so mainstream, i installed slackware'. What? And now it has become increasingly easy to call anyone who doesn't do things like 98% people do, hipster. I mean, i do, admitedly, as i'm getting older, feel an always greater urge to fit in and be less unusual, or to be casual in that respect, but what. Maybe some people don't play ProEvolution Soccer all day, and like their computer not slowing down from browsing and movie watching only, being responsive and not crashing. And now i'm a hipster?

    Jeez, the world's out of control.

    Who cares? It's just an OS. It's an environment to get work done.

    Clive Sinclair, a household name in the UK in the 1980s/1990s on account of the ZX81, the ZX Spectrum and the C5 had this to say about games:
    Games are a problem you solve. I have real problems in my life to solve. I don't need games.
    That's exactly how I feel about high maintenance distros/OS like Gentoo, Arch and FreeBSD. I don't say you shouldn't use them - or that you'd be stupid for doing so - but I would wonder what your priorities were.

    Maybe I'm too young to be a hipster. I prefer to run applications, not the operating system. So I guess a hipster is one who prefers to tinker with the OS, and for whom the applications are secondary.

    I don't use Linux because Windows is mainstream. I just use it because I find it to be nearly impossible to program in Windows.
