My husband has used Linux for a number of years and Ubuntu for the last couple. I have always said I wanted to do the same, but there was always some restriction on that — like, I’ll do it when the warranty on my computer runs out or when the semester is over or something. Well, I finally took the leap last weekend. Actually, I am dual booting Ubuntu and Windows until I get my wireless card working in Ubuntu. (I have one of those cards that doesn’t like to work with Linux, but many people have gotten it to work, so it is just a question of time before I get it going.)
So what? Why post about this at all? This morning I was reading Miguel Guhlin’s blog this morning and came across this post. Richard Stallman’s comment, which forms the basis of Miguel’s post, really made me think.
I have a long way to go before I reach that level of putting my money where my mouth is, I’m afraid. These little reminders are good for me!
