Linux is not yet a fully ready drop-in replacement for Windows or Mac for most users. But for the things I use a computer for, it has in fact completely replaced Windows. Gaming? Pft. That's what my Playstation is for!

This li'l blog is intended to be just an expression of gratitude to the wonderful "geeks" who have made Linux easy enough for even simple kids like me to use. And to encourage other simple kids like me to try Linux too.

And perhaps along the way, to put some of the "geeky stuff" I've learned from just ordinary use, into words that other non-geeks can understand.

Victims of Their Own Success?

I have a new saying...

I prefer to run applications rather than operating systems.
There are so many wonderful super-geeks who have worked very long and very hard to produce a desktop Linux that is simple enough for even a non-geeky kid like me to use. But not uncommonly, I hear them complaining that too many Linux users rely on the graphical interface and don't bother to learn the command line. It's kind of ironic, dontchya think? You wanted to make Linux easy enough for the non-geeky...
