one day, payment for goods and services will work or something.

I don't want to scare anyone with kids.

But one day--one day--you will be awake at two in the morning, trying to compile wireless drivers from binaries for his wireless card after installing Kubuntu on his laptop.

And while downloading binaries, you will get this error:

cryptsetup: WARNING: failed to detect canonical device of /dev/sda1
cryptsetup: WARNING: could not determine root device from /etc/fstab

And you will so want to go cry in the bathroom. You won't, as there is no crying in ubuntu, networks, and well, hell, but oh, you will want to.

You know, if blurays would just work when one puts them in their perfectly legal and updated Samsung machine and maybe, IDK, remove all those goddamn trailers, warnings, and random unskippable junk, I might never have learned the joy of hand compiling drivers in Kubuntu.

I get why people become hackers now. I mean, sure, there's the troll quality, but I am pretty sure at this point there is a sizable minority who entered the field by sheer accident due to a break with reality when they realized companies were selling them movies that apparently, the company deeply resented them actually watching.

...and Child still needs this laptop with working wireless tomorrow. Find me a political philosophy that requires corporations provide actual working goods and services for payments rendered and I will leave capitalism tomorrow. Or next time I have time; November 2013 looks good for that.
