GNU/Linux - The Exceedingly Vibrant, Future Enabling, Technological Liberator for Humankind.. Score: All Time High
As a GNU/Linux aficionado for years now, I marvel with delight at the specter of this glorious phenomena of technological freedom and advancement that is GNU/Linux. The profound effects of this philosophy of GNU/Linux has brought our Technological world a vehicle with which to collaborate, evolve, adapt, overcome, celebrate, and advance at a rate previously unattainable. Did these wizards of free open source software (i.e., Richard M. Stallman, Linus Torvalds, Ian Murdock, Mark Shuttleworth, and the so many who have similar histories of contributing to Free Software and GNU/Linux) ever fathom the effect their humble, yet magnanimous, efforts would bring to our world (and for 20 years now)? Unreal.
GNU/Linux is all around us.. It’s truly amazing just how much is done by this remarkable operating system, and often, without mere mortals even knowing it! Time to crack it open, and share.
For instance, I see many people every day using Google’s Android (GNU/Linux) based mobile phones. People from all walks of life, all ages, and of widely varied degrees of perceivable technological savvy. Thank you Google, for bringing GNU/Linux outside to walk around on the street, secured to the hip or carried in purses by people who willingly, if unknowingly, support the cause and culture of using an operating system that was borne of, and advances, the free will of people, the enabling of humans with technology. And like Ubuntu GNU/Linux - the fastest growing Desktop GNU/Linux yet.. currently at the Natty Narwhal release of 11-04.
And for all the other gazillions of applications of GNU/Linux in our Technical world, like Amazon.com, Yahoo.com, (basically *.com), entire stock markets, groundbreaking scientific research, and so, so much more.. we can all share in the glory. Thank you to all who make it possible!
This is a very brilliant time for Technology and Humans. For these are the times for GNU/Linux; The Future is very bright indeed. Get your GNU/Linux on! Viva La GNU/Linux!
