I am here to announce I’ll be leaving Debian today. Not only Debian, I’ll no further participate in DebConf4 organization team or International Free Software Forum committee. I’ve just sold for $1 my participation in Propus, the FLOSS company I started (actually I paid someone $1 to keep my share and erase my name of the company history). Finally, as president of the Debian-RS user group, I hereby declare it dissolved. It will no longer exists (and I’ll redirect every hit it gets to a webpage I am preparing with FrontPage™ with this text).
What happened? I became iluminated! I just had a vision: Microsoft Windows XP is the only true way into computing. Microsoft’s now well known Get the Facts rule-book just spoke to me! I understood that ignorance is a gift and I chose not to spend another single second learning. What’s the point anyway? Isn’t it what Microsoft is already doing for me? Why worry then?
Also, I told all my friends to stop pissing me off asking me questions of some so-called penguin-operating-system or another thing with a horned head symbol . I, from now on, have nothing to do with it? For all of the ones that asked me anything about it I just answer: “Why would you learn anything new? Microsoft will provide us. Trust’em!”
Alright! I am not telling you the whole truth. I am learning something! ASP.NET and VB.NET. I’ve just left Ruby , C++, and PHP . It was too much freedom for me to handle (I completely agree with Dr. Schwartz )! Just the mere concept of being able to ask Matz to include something in Ruby and being heard scares me to death now!
So why am I learning ASP.NET and VB.NET? First of all, it’s everything there (if it’s not, Microsoft will provide us without me having to ask!). Second, I want to help Microsoft to grow even more! I want everybody to share the same benefits I have… even though I had to pay hundreds to use it (for the first year only)… it’s worth every penny!
I am done! After eight years of foolish beliefs and odd-licensed programming (everything that is licensed under BSD-like, GPL, DSL, or any other OSI-approved license is just plain odd), I am just done! I’ll develop my own version of EULA that enforces my rights to use other people’s free work in my own works and charge for it. In fact, I really think that Einstein should have done just that with Relativity… what if little kids would have to pay to learn it??
That’s it! This should be my last post in this blog! I’ll be back here when I converted everything from PHP/MySQL to ASP.NET/MSSQL.
Be like me (and Cipher)! Take the path back to the matrix! That steak tastes so good…
Happy April Fool’s Day!
