You have to understand one thing, I'll try to make it as clear as possible:

POSTING STUFF LIKE THIS IS NOT GOING TO GET THE LINUX PORT DONE QUICKER.

As you noticed, this topic is already talked about elsewhere. Leave it at that. As far as we know, the Linux version is in the works, but the network compatibility is a big problem (and was what held up the DEFCON Linux version for half a year). So have some patience.

Sorry to go off topic, but what does QFT or QFFT mean?

QFFT is just an emphatic version of the first, by adding another word.

Only partially helpful

QFT Quantum Field Theory
-->QFT Quoted For Truth (website; slang)
QFT Quantitative Feedback Theory
QFT Quantum Fourier Transform
QFT Qualified Funeral Trust
QFT Quantitative Fluorescence Technique
QFT Quest For Tech, Inc.
-->QFT Quit Freaking Talking (polite form)
-->QFT Quite Freaking True (polite form)
QFT Quality Face Time

Are the 3 that I think it could be.

Truth and true seem the most likely and quit talking is my preferred use of it but doubt it applies in this sense.

I'm assuming it's Quite F'in True.

Usually, in these forums, is "Quoted for Truth".

QFFT is the impolite form

and QFMFT, I'm assuming is the even more impolite form :wink:

Sadly no, I was in a rush to check it out and post on my coffee break.

I now can see what the missing impolite words are for QFFT and QFMFTB!!!!

GNU/Linux is a bullshit term. Calling it Linux is fine, or Debian or Gentoo or a distro is fine, but GNU/Linux is Stallman being a whiney little bitch and his zealots drinking his bullshit.

That's an Americanism (and maybe a UKism too, I have no idea what the moron-status is there at the moment)
Adding fucking or motherfucking doesn't make it impolite, not in this context.

Being 'offended', on the other hand, is something else.
But I honestly don't care about anyone's feelings when they get 'hurt' by a word that is not even directed at them.
