Real Player Sucks

Stefan Tilkov,

I have always hated RealPlayer, and I even thought about writing about it some day. It turns out that there’s no need because Tomas Jogin has written everything that needs to be written already.

Real Player is beyond a doubt the worst media player that ever was. Every successive version seems to suck more and have even more annoying features that don’t work. Its actually a virus, but since most people implementing it are braindead, they think its a good idea.

Real Player actually improved even though it is still a piece of shit. I use the free version (Real Player 10 Gold bb). You have to be a real dick to pay for Real Player. I remove Realsched an the crummy Google Toolbar it also installs and it runs quite well now. But Real Player does suck.

Real Player is actually an anagram for LARRY E. PALE the ASSHOLE who developed this piece of shit program. Hey, Larry…REAL PLAYER… SUCKS, SUCKS, SUCKS. It is the SUCKIEST of all the sucky programs that ever sucked. I mean it REALLY SUCKS. If real player was a real PERSON…which it is (Larry E. Pale) he’d SUCK BIG TIME. It sucks so bad it couldn’t even get a job in a Bangkok whorehouse. It sucks so bad that Michael Jackson would delete it even if it was a 12 year old white boy. It sucks so bad that an 85 year old blind guy with one leg wouldn’t even pay for it. IT sucks MORE than the second season of Saved by the Bell. It sucks more than George Bush’s foreign policy. It even sucks more than Jennifer Lopez…and she REALLY SUCKS!!! ROYALLY!!!
