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...

There are no debs available, but if you have an environment where you can use simple Makefiles you can probably compile it. As of this writing I'm using debian squeeze, and the glade package, so if your system is up to these specs you probably won't have any trouble. Here is...

Someone has suggested that I have developed an ideology out of open-source. And the fact is, they missed the point completely, or I should have clearly stated the relationship of one to the other. So, let me do so.
