One of the reasons I invested more time in this blog years ago was that GNU/Linux was unwelcome on several prominent public forums. I thought to get an update…
In craigslist people actually suggest installing GNU/Linux to fix things in the computer forum. No longer are they shooed away to the Linux forum. Well, there are some rude people but they don’t seem to get their way. It’s seems GNU/Linux is much more accepted than five years ago.
In Kijiji, the forums are gone except for the URI which leads to nothing but ads and links to social media where nothing like the computer forum exists.
I guess the on-line forums are maturing or the trolls/astroturfers have died or are no longer paid. Certainly GNU/Linux is getting increasing mind-share.
