n. An example of a freeware
operating system. Idealogically beautiful, but practically a bit of a hassle, this
fast-growing operating system is often used by computer programmers. In fact, almost
all programmers that
work for Microsoft do all their work on Linux boxes...hmm...
My impression of Linux is that
it's vastly improved but still
not as user-friendly as Windows. I continue to hope that
it completely overthrows the "evil Microsoft empire" as a large triumph for the free software
movement, but it's not going to do that
anytime soon unless it cleans up (from a non-programmer standpoint) some of the difficulties
of installing programs.
on, brave penguin!
