How to upset Mozilla people  
At the Journées du logiciel libre near Lyon, the Debian stand happened to face the Mozilla one. The Debian developers present there had prepared some Iceweasel propaganda:

However it seems Daniel Glazman didn't understand all the fun of this situation, and just found these developers to be total morons or bloody fanatic assholes. "Moron" is also reserved for anyone trying to post comments disagreeing with him on his blog, which can also be simply deleted.

It seems some people need to take things less seriously.

Of course, as the epiphany maintainer, I can only be happy of this situation which will lead to more people using this great browser.

Epiphany rocks. I'd really like a user-agent switching plugin though, since we sadly have a lot of intranet-pages that "requires" IE =(

Debian = Lame bloody assholes
They didn't even comply with the firefox logo terms of use:


«The logo must include the copyright (©) symbol.»

Debian doesn't allow me to call my L33t home made distro "Debian GNU/Linux" and use their official logo, so should I make myself a t-shirt with this:



Grow up, people.

Re: Well...
The official logo is not part in any way of the distribution itself.

Which means you have the right to take the Debian distribution, apply tons of patches, and keep the "open use" logo in it, as long as you make it clear this isn't the official Debian distribution.

Why that ?
"Some people need to take things less seriously", but all should learn what is the best for computer engeneering : troops of mozillans and debianist fighting together, or the same ones associating their efforts for the profits of free software ?

Mozillan people are may be a bit nervous, but this sort of small wars launched by Debian (or affiliated developpers) does not reinforce th credit I put in it.

Re: Why that ?
Taking things less seriously means, for example, not seeing two logos on a wall as a war.
