Over at LinuxInsider, I got a few shots in…
“We are very close to that dream today. In USA or Canada, one can buy Chromebooks just about anywhere with either ARM or Intel CPUs. In many parts of the world, Android/Linux is available on ARM or Intel CPUs in a huge variety of forms from tiny controllers to smartphones to tablets and even a few desktops.
This nonsense where you can have anything as long as it runs that other OS on Intel is just about dead. OEMs and retailers can’t even sell enough units to bother these days, but the number of small, cheap computers in endless variety keep increasing in unit sales. 2013 was pretty decent but 2014 promises to be even better.”

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.
