Red Hats everywhere...

Well, actually not everywhere, but just a bit down the hallway.
Last week I started a new job, in 45th floor of really nice building. Pretty early I learned that Sony has it's office here (I think 43rd floor), today I learned that Adobe also is here (41st floor) and, most importantly, that Red Hat is here. Right here on the 45th floor. As said, just a few meters down the hallway.

So I took a few minutes and talked to one of the guys, about Linux in general, my little project EasyLFS (though I didn't throw in the name yet) and recent problems I ran into with it, SELinux and AppArmor and some general stuff.
The result is that he gave me his namecard and even offered to post my problems to other Red Hat guys if maybe somebody knows something about that.

Well, let's see. Maybe something useful can come out of this.

And tomorrow I think I'll go down to Sony and slap some people for their stupid rootkit...

after that, slap the adobe

 

after that, slap the adobe guys around too. it sickened me when i heard that some bigwig at adobe said at a conference that adobe is very actively pro-linux and is contributing to the linux community by providing their flash player and some other program (i forget which one he said). thats the same kind of support that linux gets from companies like valve (only creating server software for their games for linux... but, i also play games on linux.)

Flash only 32-bit

Oh yes, only providing a 32-bit version of the Flash-player is already a good reason. I'm here with Fedora 64-bit and have to have Firefox in 32-bit installed so that my wife can watch YouTube. I'd use Gnash, but that doesn't seem to be capable to play those videos.

Wow man you're lucky. It

Wow man you're lucky. Smiling It must feel really good to be up there door to door with some big technology brands, including best of all RedHat! Smiling

About Adobe Flash I think they deserve to be slapped for forcing Gnash guys to go through all this trouble when Adobe could just release real flash free source code and let the gnash guys help out make it better and truly cross platform (and cross-architecture).

Edit: Well if you ask me, all proprietary software makers deserve a slap. Eye
