Walt Mossberg, enemy of freedom

So the freetards badgered Goatberg into doing a review of Ubuntu preloaded on a Dell laptop. Walt says it still ain’t ready for prime time. See his write-up here. His quibbles? Little things like it couldn’t play music and video unless he downloaded codecs, some of which were labled as “bad” or “ugly.” And the PC couldn’t recognize his camera and his iPod without being rebooted a few times. Videos played like shit, “with lots of flickering and freezing.” And there’s no built-in software for playing DVDs. But otherwise it rocked. (Photo: Burt Hammer, All Things G.)
