Breaking Up With Bill

,----[ Quote ]
| You SOB! You BSODed my old desktop enough times already!
|
| “Ay, ma’am, XP na lang,” the technician offered.
|
| So it was back to the Bill that I was used used to.
|
| But things were never the same with me again. I ditched IE for FF. I
| installed OpenOffice.
|
| I wanted to be free.
|
| It was not a surprise that I met Linus.
|
| He does not talk in mindless riddles. He offers security, variety,
| transparency, efficiency, freedom. And all for free.

Windows XP - PCLinuxOS Dual Boot Saves the Day

,----[ Quote ]
| I didn't have time to do a virus scan. A quick look at the main directory via
| the command prompt showing a hidden autorun.inf containing suspicious entries
| confirmed that there was one lurking around. Sure, I was able to remove the
| autorun.inf file, but who knows what other files contained them. To continue
| working on my spreadsheet ASAP, I simply restarted the system, booted up on
| PCLinuxOS, and completed my work there.

FOSSFA calls for use of open hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| "No government should allow its freedom of choice to be restricted by the
| chance of prior hardware purchases. The fact of the matter is that government
| is a major purchaser of hardware and it can use that power to enforce
