Odds and ends on Life with Linux. Although I'm a diehard Debian user, you may find my raves and ramblings entertaining. I'm intentionally writing my posts in a somewhat light style, hoping to foster as many dialogues with visitors - yes, that's you - as I can.

Blogging - naah...

Now what do i need this blog for - i've already got a few ones, documenting this and that. My LQ blog might come in handy when i have something to say with reference to Linux and its influence on my life. 'Cause everyone's influenced by this phenomenon - even you!

So, what's there to say?

Lots! The big question is where to begin. I've got Linux all over the place - at work, at home and in my mind. The particular variant that has invaded my life is Debian Linux, and sure it has made a difference.

First and foremost it has changed my view on the whole computing business by changing my perspective. I'm not saying you can't live happily without Debian, just that by participating in this somewhat nerdy universe you will meet a whole new kind of people. Actually, that goes for most of the opensource scene. This is in stark opposition to the 'commercial scene', led by microsoft. Here, money talks.
But money is not a neccesary ingredient in a computing experience -you'd be amazed how much friendlier people get, when they don't have to compete for gold & glory.

So, i run Debian on everything i can, and like to talk with people about how to explore and discover new ways of using whatever gear they have. Actually, networking is great fun. So is cramming big functionality into little things. Or big things
I've seen Debian go into stuff like a Linksys NSLU2, A Sun Ultra5, an Asus EEEpc 701SD, an old IBM Thinkpad 701C, various Dell laptops and a host of stationary PCs. Implementing all this has brought me into contact with a great many people in the community, and this is a real treat; the vast majority are helpful, friendly, computer savvy people.

So, there!

Come on in and join the party!
