    Deanjo: "LOL, did you even read your link? It even says that nokia's are not all made in Finland."


    Deanjo: "Again wrong, they also have products being made in Malaysia, Taiwan, and other countries."
    ^ Can you spell made localy?

    I am unbiased. That is what bugs the hell out of you. Even by those comments you are suggesting that I should view everything from a linux POV. Sorry but that would not be unbiased, but being biased.
    You are defending something, therefore you are engaging in an argument, therefore you are biased. Like all proper websites; moderators do not engage in things that they are moderating. Either you're doing a shit job, or you're biased.

      Again wrong, the those products made in China are shipped internationally, they are not only for China.

      I can spell locally, apparently you can't.

      I am correcting false statements with facts. That's not bias. That is setting the record straight.

        Do you really think you would have had a much better experience with linux in that era? By your criteria it sounds like a Windows PC was the best option for you or even an Amiga.

          No shit, Sherlock, but only as close to the geographical supply chain as possible. That means no China to Europe. And if something from China ends up in Europe; it's not Nokia endorsed and will be rejected for warranty.

          I can spell locally, apparently you can't.
          I'll refrase that, for your autism:
          Can you phantom made locally?

          You are a moderator, engaging in something you're suppose to moderate and therefore biased. Is this realy so hard to understand?

            Well that is simply not the case, many models are manufactured in China and Mexico at the Foxconn factories for nokia (and other countries as well) for countries that are not local. Also the "Made to" moniker refers to where the product was assembled, not to where all the sub components were manufactured.

            I'll refrase that, for you autism:
            Can you fanthom made locally?
            Absolutely I can. I can even fathom it, but I can't "fanthom" it.

            Apparently it is you that has a hard time understanding what moderation is and what bias is.


            Moderate
            chair, judge, make peace, negotiate, preside, referee, take the chair, umpire

            Bias
            Bias is an inclination to present or hold a partial perspective at the expense of (possibly equally valid) alternatives

              Back in the days of the Performa however Q, there was a heck of a lot out there in linux land for OS or piracy. Linux was pretty minimal in those days.

                YOU are the instigator, I merely call you on your bullshit. Please point out where I defended Stallman's view on proprietary software (which is what I mainly disagree with him on).

                You need to look up the meaning of trolling, a good starting point would be a series of posts on Phoronix made by user yogi_berra.

And stop comparing him to Bill Gates or his actions, he's not even in the Top 100 wealthiest men. But, hey, if he keeps shares in the industries he helped create or shaped (Pixar-Disney, Apple) he's a demon! And if I highlight this, then decency goes out the window - because Free Software and GPL... well, something.
                  This is something that always amazed me. Jobs runs the most profitable software company in the world and yet he's not one of the wealthiest guys in the world. Compare him to a real d-bag like Zuckerberg and Jobs really does come off quite well.

                    Nokia doesn't manufacture components. Nokia buys them from Samsung, Toshiba and Texas Instruments. Therefore, Nokia has nothing to do with them.

                    Absolutely I can. I can even fathom it, but I can't "fanthom" it.
                    Phantom. My bad. Jesus.

                    Fathom means measure, phantom means ghost, or to mentally image something.

                    Apparently it is you that has a hard time understanding what moderation is and what bias is.
                    Moderation is lessening extremes. Apple is a little extremely out of place on a FLOSS website, and just a company. Given how much extreme attention Steve Job's death gets, and Ritchie doesn't, it's only moderate in nature people combat the attention of a CEO.

                    Now, how does one objectively "fathom", when one is engaged in the very thing one needs to judge? Earth to you; you can't.

                      Dude, he just volunteered to moderate out the spam here. You should be thankful for that instead of trying to silence him.
