Fallacy: non sequitur. Terminals are not houses or cars.

This is a prime example of what I meant by "unable to learn." I build
large-scale compute clusters. I build massive storage networks. I am
familiar with the sorts of things people are doing with large amounts
of processing power. Here is a hint: it has nothing to do with you
being able to see your furry anime tentacle rape wallpaper through
your ubuntu console. Not one single person in the history of time has
sat down and said to himself, "I am going to design a faster
processor, because I am a mouthbreathing shithead who wants a
transparent terminal." Your stupid crap is not driving progress at
all. Do not delude yourself otherwise.

Anything you say from here forward is, well, the idiotic ramblings of
a person who doesn't know how to think.

You misspelled "retarded." Also, you meant to use "you're" there.
Good luck in constructing sentences in the future. Maybe a slightly
higher terminal opacity will help.
