Lame things that suck

The world is a difficult place, we know.
Here’s a list of things that suck unnecessarily much:

  • Fink for OSX needs Xcode dev tools.
    Why not provide a gcc/libc-dev package? No idea. General lameness from the fink developers forces you to register at the Apple Developer Connection and download 700MB of apple crap just to install and compile source packaged software in fink. LAME.
  • Fink is not Cydia on the iPhone.
    Both are based on apt and dpkg. Both run on OSX. Pooling of efforts, everyone.
  • The very fact that you have to jailbreak an iPhone is ridiculous. Goes doubletime for Xbox and PlayStation chipping, Wii softmods and DS carding. This is vendor lockdown and should be lotted with the criminally insane – vendors don’t need to take responsibility for user-created apps, but vendoirs must not stand in the way of the software evolution.
  • Tar sands. Corruption.
  • There ain’t enough time to read all the cool web comics. Games? Don’t get me started.
  • to quote a friend and collegue, “every operating system in the world. Pick one and I will tell you how much it sucks.”
