“One day, we had a virus that simply would not go away. Little did we know what was happening to the data on the slave disk. When it finally failed, we plugged in the week-old slave backup and it failed a week later. Our second backup simply refused to boot up…This was a body blow to my wife’s business plans and meant lost contracts and delayed invoice payments.”
See My Linux Story: Soumya SarkarThis guy’s story is not unlike mine. That Other OS did not work for me when it counted and switching to GNU/Linux gave me years of trouble-free computing in place of constant aggravation. You too, can enjoy the freedom to run,examine, modify and distribute Free Software that works for you and not against you. I suggest Debian GNU/Linux. The world can and does make its own software and will share it with you. Check it out.

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.
