@trickster if we want linux to be accepted then they shouldn't even need to know that stuff. I am guessing you drive a car, do you know how the internal ICE works or the number of parts which your cell-phone has, forget cell-phone just tell me what sort of antennae your mobile has without opening the mobile. That's not really the path we want to take people down. If people wanna learn they will do if they like.
@sophia sorry, all nerds are not such dicks :)
@shirishag75 in english spaces, phrases of the form "oh, so you like X, huh? name 5 of their Ys" is a very common joke phrase to make fun of the people that gatekeep and decide who is a "true" nerd and who is not
I was laughing at the message Sophia got, not making fun of her, I very much agree with your points :)
@trickster ah my bad, apologies then mate, all good here :)
