“Many organizations can cut spending on software by as much as 30 percent by implementing three software license optimization best practices”
See Gartner Says Organizations Can Cut Software Costs by 30 Percent Using Three Best PracticesGartner trumpets that folks can optimize licensing costs simply by adopting a few “best practices”. Chuckle. They conveniently omit FLOSS, the world making and sharing the software that the world creates. The ultimate optimization is to just say “No!” and cut out the layers in IT that burden us with restrictive expensive licences. They just aren’t necessary for good IT. The revolution I promoted in schools, using GNU/Linux, particularly with thin clients, on old PCs, and the revolution happening in my home, switching to GNU/Linux on ARMed processors, prove that.

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.
