Ethiopia is one of the poorest regions on Earth thanks to climate and colonialism. The dust has barely settled in their war over Eritrea. Still, they can see what has happened in the rest of the world with IT and will struggle to catch up ASAP. While they seem to have a shortage of IT, judging by the statistical variation in StatCounter’s data from one month to the next (Standard deviation goes as 1/âˆšN), a lot of it seems to be running GNU/Linux lately. Good. That’s a good sign of progress.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. 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. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
