What fun!

Curiosity piqued, I tried to do some quasi-controlled analysis, using
the following method.  For various values of "foo", I did a Google
search for "foo developers rude" and then for "foo developers
friendly", and computed the ratio of the number of hits, yielding the
RQ or "rudeness quotient" for foo.

Here are the RQ's for a few foo's:


baseline (foo = ""):     0.064

SOFTWARE:

gimp:         0.314
photoshop:    0.411
gnome:        0.199
linux:        0.044
linux kernel: 0.212
kde:          0.160
inkscape:     0.006
krita:        0.021
blender       0.181

ORGANIZATIONS:

fsf:          0.392
microsoft:    0.067
adobe:        0.313
oracle:       0.206
ibm:          0.274

COUNTRIES:

american:     0.045
german:       0.243
canadian:     0.009
french:       0.116
indian:       0.114
finnish:      0.340
norwegian:    0.394

QUALITIES:

hacker:       0.571
brilliant:    0.791
elite:        0.769
incompetent:  0.344
stupid:       0.819

So it seems that the least rude are Inkscape developers and Canadians.
The rudest are the "stupid" developers, followed closely by the
"brilliant" ones.
