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 users who in turn become intermediate/advanced/expert users who donate time to help new users... You get the point I'm sure. Its something to be thankful for, a gift from others.

"...and I am thankful that aunt Ginny got her job back and uncle Frank got off the crack and I am thankful Daddy quit smoking and that the KDE team spent so much time making my destop leet..."

    I was thinking something similar. I started a thread:Giving Thanks for Linux.
    I am very grateful for Linux and the great tools and interactive experience it provides. And it's free.
