I tried to write a book
« on: March 24, 2014, 09:57:59 pm »
In an attempt to sublimate my frothing-at-the-mouth hatred of Linux I started to write a book. I figured that if Glen Beck could get a book published I could do much better. Having read The Unix Hater’s Handbook I figured that I could create something similar with a initially lower barrier of understanding. The first half of the book would not require a given reader to be thoroughly versed with nix operating systems. My template plan was thus:

Foreword
Preface
Meet the Linux Community!
 Distro
  Incident
   Who caused it and why?
   Who supported it and why?
   Who did nothing to prevent and why?

Technical Flaws
   The Unix Wars: a prologue
   History repeats   
         Fragmentation
          Unstable Kernel
          Unstable ABI
     Unstable API


I stopped writing because: it was not funny, publishers deemed it too much of a risk because of faces and dox, self publishing was not worth it. Samples are spoilered below:

Despite knowing about indoctrination I thought it was a good idea to put a human Reaper near my office. Now I am a sentient husk :(.
