Diablo® III

People being banned for using Linux....

Blizzard doesn't care. It sucks, but they really don't. The only thing you can do is not play with a Linux os.

Honestly? What I think? The OP has 40 friends who all play on Linux... sounds like a farming operation to me via the Linux OS. There is more to this story than a simple OS compatibility issue.


ROFL. Yes, Linux is the preferred kernel for gold farmers...

The stupidity here...it overwhelms.


... it's much easier to write bots in Bash on Linux ;)
I knew there were a lot of ignorant people on these forums but damn, this topic really takes the cake

I have never met a human being aside from myself and coworkers who use Linux.


And how often do you sit around the water cooler asking people what OS they use as a random topic of the day?

Try to think a little.


Take your own advice, the point being that people don't broadcast random facts that are unimportant to daily life, unless your just a geek who tries to impress his friends with the fact that you run linux.

lol touché
I guess they didn't get the memo that the internet runs on Linux... as do their servers.

I am highly suspicious that Linux was to blame for the ban wave, and not something more malicious.

Linux had nothing to do with this. 40 is a specific number of friends to have Linux. Not saying it's impossible, but very very VERY highly unlikely that they all get banned at the same time purely for 'running Linux'. It's just a thread for people to boast their e-peen on how much they think they understand about the OS.

Or he works as a programmer, and they're all developing Linux software.

As I said: not everyone works in HR. Linux is perhaps the norm in his workplace.

So again: Think a little, and try not cherry-picking quotes.


Are you a comedian?
