The government of South Korea has been promoting FLOSS but now seeks to exploit FLOSS on the desktop.“South Korea is considering expanding its use of free and open source software, and has invited France’s Major Stehane Dumond to present the Gendarmerie’s open source migration. From the Netherlands, Bart Lindeboom, director for computerisation and automation in the city of Ede, will talk about the town’s open standards strategy.” Way to go! I’ve long recommended all users of IT get the same benefits from using FLOSS on the desktop as many get using FLOSS on servers: lower costs, higher performance and FREEDOM.

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.
