... and the Google users are flaming.  Grin Just read through a couple of blogs. This (German) one, for example, states that "Mint 12 sucks (e.g.) because Google is no more the default search engine". Oh my!

I wonder if these people could use the internet when Google is down for maintenance.

The truth is that any operating system is going to suck for those that do not have even the small amount of intelligence and expertise required to make the most basic of customizations, such as changing the default search engine. Makes me wonder how they even managed to install the OS.

As diaspora and facebook standing strong against Google+, many social media google fanbois are posting against all the free and open source software projects. I am sure google will stop sponsoring open source projects which are threat to their business indirectly.

I learned something new this year - "If you're not paying for it then you're the product being sold" and there are few folks who live their entire life taking part in this popularity contest with their peers for the sake of showoff by using expensive  and trendy stuff that is sold under the disguise of something sinister from (insert google, facebook, microsoft and apple).

Google+ is dying slowly. The hype is over.

They say Google is innovative. Wink I wonder how they copy from open source folks without any credit and people who don't pay attention assume that google is innovative because of social media folks talking in favor of them.

I take it none of you use either Mint or G+. Oy. More often than not, the reason [Mint] users bitch about a particular default choice is that (a) it's being changed for no reason, and (b) no one asked the users if they wanted it changed. Google is using open source to power Android far past iphone/iOS sales, and you think they're going to burn that bridge? Yeah, that makes sense (if you're Oracle).

I use Mint Debian Edition, have a random look at G+ and know how to configure my browser.
