Well you have Ubuntu running on Windows 10, and X11 running on Ubuntu, so now if someone gets Wine running on X11, then we can have Notepad running on Wine running on X11 running on Ubuntu running on Windows 10. Inception!
Am I Allowed To Share Free Things?
I am serious, is it okay to give my book away for free? If the book were written by another author and I was giving you the link to a free technical book would that be okay? My book is a technical book and related to the community here. I can understand if it weren't how this might anger some.
Before Your Knee-Jerks (Marks As Spam)
I know that this message might be controversial but please note a few items before you knee-jerk mark as spam.
1. I support this community with numerous articles and discussions (and will continue to do so) -- spammers only force their garbage on you.
2. I am honestly attempting to give something away that has value. -- spammers only force advertising on you with no benefit to you.
3. I am not anonymous. -- spammers are anonymous
4. Yes, I derive benefit from it, but I'm offering value also. -- spammers don't do that.
5. Did I mention it's free?
If You decided to Mark As Spam
Please, at least start a dialog about this and let me know why. I won't get mad. I'm honestly attempting to provide value to the community.
If You Have A Free Book, I'll Download It -- I like free.
I can't speak officially, but personally, I'd say it looks interesting. I'd download it for free if I had a Kindle (but I don't).
I'd prefer PDF-format, though.
But seeing it's not PDF and I don't have a Kindle, I guess I'll have to wait until it comes out as a movie (on Pirate Bay)...
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time
A somewhat flawed piece of logic, wouldn't you say? Now you've set the precedent are you going to let me publicise my free list of aliens in power around the world or peddle my free advice on bringing down the Government using nothing but a thumbnail drive and an apple core?
I don't have any problems with the decision. I just wonder whether which slippery slope it may lead us to.
Not really. Spam is advertising, which at it's heart is trying to get something (money, traffic, clicks, whatever) which is of benefit to the person posting it. He isn't - he's pointing you are a site where you can get something he has put a lot of effort into (I hope) for nothing. And as far as I know, Amazon doesn't pay you for someone looking at your book on their site!
So I don't see it as spam.
Your examples aren't spam either. They are probably rubbish, or worse: religion. But they aren't spam. You might get kicked as a troll though!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
