Last month I wrote about the crossroads I was at in my career. Well, I decided it was time to take some action. Since I’m new to certifications, I talked to some friends in the field and did some looking around online, and decided to pick up PMP video training from PREPLOGIC.COM (here: I love it. I bought the PMP practice exam from PrepLogic, too but I’ve really just started looking at that.

How much do you engage in imagination about what Linux is fully capable of? Is Linux simply something that you use, and don't give much else thought to it? Have you ever wondered what a society driven by Linux or open-source would look like? Are you limited to thinking the other guys will always rule the world?

Ok. Now that I've introduced my historical background with computers, let's discuss the direction I think they're going to take into the future, based on what they've done in the past.

There is a fervent discussion of whether operating systems should be multilib or not. And I think the argument against being so should be settled once and for all, by the hardware itself. That the argument is the hardware.

AMD made a monumental decision with the introduction of their 64-bit...
