this is the biggest part of why he's an asshole. if you're not
willing to learn how to use a computer don't buy a computer. if your
biggest complaint about a piece of software is "I can't immediately
use it" then you are an asshole, full stop.

since his views are fundamentally flawed, all conclusions he reaches
based on those views are tainted. he specifically says gstreamer
would be fine if everyone used it. this is patently false, just as
how theft would still be wrong even if everyone in the world had a go.

because it's not just that the things he says are wrong. the things
he thinks are wrong, the methodology by which he draws conclusions is
wrong, and the very fact that he was given a podium is wrong. he is a
complete and utter tool, totally devoid of worth, and nothing he said
in that entire presentation was in the slightest bit interesting,
correct, or useful.

does that clear anything up?
