To listen to some of the trolls I have banned, you would think that other OS absolutely essential to life in USA. Guess what country uses Windows the least (almost) to access Wikipedia? Yes! You got that right! It’s USA! While foisting that other OS on the world, they prefer Apple’s OS for “creative” or “research” purposes, or maybe to settle a bet in the pub. Despite that, they are also one of the biggest users of */Linux being only 1 percentage-point less than the global (mostly USA/Europe) average of 11%. Can we say “hypocrisy”, boys and girls?

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.
