Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted 11-27-2008 at 02:36 PM by linuxpokernut

Yes Happy Thanksgiving, even to M$ users. I just had one thought before going to Turkey dinner at my Moms:

How many people said/will say they are thankful for open source at the dinner blessings tonite?

Does that seem weird to you? I dont know what to make of it. Sounds a bit 'nerdy' to be talking about at the dinner table, but if you think about it it makes sense. People donating time and effort to create free software and more people donating more time to teach new...

Hello, I would like you to help me make a list of some features of LINUX: the good stuff about it, the bad stuff and the interesting ones.

If you want, you can enumerate what you consider to be the best about linux (THE POSITIVE ABOUT IT), the worst about linux (THE NEGATIVE) and the Interesting about it...

For me, as a newbie and absolutely not skilled in programming or anything:

The positive about linux is:
  1. There are not viruses, or at least

The small things

Posted 11-27-2008 at 03:17 AM by bitpicker (Bitpicker's Blog: Random musings and rants)

I just noticed, it's thanksgiving day in the US (I'm German). So this is something of an unintentional thanksgiving post.

Every now and then something turns up when using Linux which I am really grateful for, even though it is a small thing.
