 Gnome, KDE and XFCE aren't Linux Desktop Environments at all. They are WINDOW MANAGERS and can be installed on ANY OS!

 

There, I am the BIGGEST geek! No Jobs v. Gates q's, no UNIX (MULTICS UNICS) q's??? More like lame anti-C (which still runs the latest OSes btw) OOP loving geek.

They are all Desktop Enviornments. Gnome is only for UNIX, and kde is for all os.

 

Close enough.

3rd :) not bad (with 4500).  I don't really see were the perturbing head scratchers are though. I would have had one more but clicked the wrong fucking button.

Half those questions weren't even "Geek" questions. Twitter? Seriously now.

avatar

zerokool

4500/5000, not too bad. I think some of the application ones were garbage questions... Oh Well...

That's funny, I got Zombie Killer but I have never played Left 4 Dead.  Does that mean they'll take it back?

The only one I'm sorry I missed was the 4870 shader units - I missed that they were asking about the X2.  It's not so much of a "geek" quiz as it is a "do you read every single article and post that MaximumPC publishes" quiz.

lunchbox73

Enthusiast. 2700. But I didn't need to use a #2 pencil at all!

So who is the geek in the picture anyway?

avatar

vistageek

A lot of the questions were questions involving specific programs, like digsbe, synergy, left for dead, and what not. I got all of those right, but still, they were a bit biased questions. I knew the pie one! :-)

avatar

I'm a Zombie Killer.

Tekzel

I am an "Enthusiast", 3300 of 5000.  There were some oddball questions on there.  I also chose wrong on a few and right as I clicked I realized I was choosing the wrong one. haha.

avatar

AntiHero

I got the same thing.

avatar

Devo85x

most of the questions weren't hard, but most of them you had to have experience with to know (i.e. The Left 4 Dead question, synergy question, digsby question, etc...)

avatar

chocobo

I got 23/50, a score of "newbie"... come on, really? I certainly don't claim to be a tech expert, but those are really hard questions. I would think getting nearly half of them right would count for a little more. /cries

Wait, so SATA 6 isn't backwards compatible?  If so, that's really stupid.  Ig the hard drive industry needed a boost in sales lol.

It is backwards compatible. The question asked which of these is not true. So that was one of the choices that is true.

 And I did not cheat by looking up the X digit of Pi! I wanted to tho...

1337Goose

Damnit, enthusiast... 30/50

Looks like 1337Goose needs to hit the books to perhaps become a little more 1337...
