whats right with Linux

Posted 03-25-2012 at 07:27 AM by floppywhopper

on another forum I visit, some troll started a thread called
why general public refuse to adopt linux?
as you might expect, guns were drawn, trenches were dug, flame-throwers were primed
and it was all on - 73 web pages worth
after it was finally closed and the wounded treated
another thread
My Biggest Problem With Linux...
with the same predictable result

so what is right with linux ??

actually ....
what is right is that I use the new Mageia distro
an offshoot of Mandriva
its pretty cool, uses KDE
but there are a few bugs
but what is really cool is that although my understanding of these things is pretty much limited to gui operations with only the very rare use of the terminal
when things go a little pear shaped as they have with my scanner
and now lately with Okular - a pdf viewer

I can go to the official Mageia forum and report the problem
and someone a lot smarter than I can fix it
and in a small way I contribute to making my distro just a little bit better

so my favourite distro is a bit more that the current OS I use
in a very small way my distro is a part of me
and vice versa

so to anyone bored enough to read this blog
take the time to become part of your distro
get involved
even if it is just reporting a bug or something
