Linux, Linux, Linux, Linux... want to try it ??? Knoppix is really nice. And easy. Download, burn, reboot. Et voila, Linux is running...
Critical thinking is overrated. The real obstacle to becoming an informed, responsible global citizen is not a lack of skepticism but a lack of exposure. The mainstream media offers a severely limited range of viewpoints to clue us inalthough in the past week I've noticed a surge of thoughtful dissenting voices. Still, we need to look beyond the information being spoon-fed to us by policy wonks.
I am no historian. I have no idea. Go read someone who does.
People just did not understand the concept of creating a program because you like programming, and they did not understand the concept of Hey, sure, I like money, but on the other hand Im a programmer, I will get paid.
I, and all the people have who actually have written code for it, have copyrighted our code. Actually, you dont have to copyright something. You automatically hold the copyright to whatever work youve done. And what is kind of special about Linux is that it kind of uses a judo trick in copyright law, turning the copyright law against itself by saying that, Sure, we own the copyright to this, but you get to copy it freely. You can do whatever you want with it. You can use it in any way. You can change it in any way. The only thing we require is that when you change it and you give it to somebody else, you give that somebody else the same rights.
I cant do that, which means people trust me because they know Im powerless.
