I am not into graphics. I appreciate pretty pictures and video and the like but I could care less how fast they flow or whether they are 2D or 3D. My monitor is 2D and I can live with it. M$ is heavily into graphics, catching the eye of the consumer/end-user who may be persuaded that a good appearance means what lies beneath is first-rate. We know that appearances can be deceiving but M$’s best graphics, DX11 is not available on XP but is coming to GNU/Linux. With half the world’s PCs supposedly on XP with nowhere to go when support is cut off, would it not be cute if the lack of graphics software on XP drove users to try better graphics on GNU/Linux? M$ will try to force folks off XP one way or another. Some will fall by the wayside and go to GNU/Linux especially if games can now be ported to GNU/Linux more easily...

My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
