    Linsux.org is EOL

    http://linsux.org/index.php?/announc...-linsux-eol///

    A few members that have remained here probably remember when it was a pretty active and somewhat well known site in Linux circles, even having a representative at LinuxCon around ~2009 or so. I'm not going to go into the history too much, but they used to criticize this board a lot, and we would criticize them back. It was a great little "forum war" thinking back on it. But obviously the site stagnated over the last few years and became something like a cheap version of 4chan. Kind of a shame, but it had a good run.

    Just thought I'd mention it, since UF has a long history with that site.

    To victory, brothers.

    Press F to pay respects.

    They used to raise some good points about Linux problems, but the Linsux members crossed the line into trolling to often for me to read what they had to say without rolling my eyes and closing the tab.

    Don't let the door ...

    The thing was, that site was a mockery of itself more than anything -- although valid points were made from time to time.

    This universe is crazy. I'm going back to my own.

    +1 and agree there was some useful information from time to time.
    This forum just stands the test of time.

    Some of us can't afford the expensive version of 4chan.

    I guess linsux is the opposite of FOSS FORCE, which exists only to bash Windows and occasionally Torvalds himself, now that one of the main contributors has sworn off Linux in Favor of FreeBSD, claiming that Linus's outbursts were too much for him, thus he needs to boycott Linux in favor of another open source project. Honestly I thought Linux users were smarter than such OS politics?

    Unfortunately Linux users are still just humans and therefore completely able to flounce over drama, desktop changes, unity, systemd and OS politics

    Say it ain't so! Whatever Linsux is or was, I'm going to miss it...
