A journey into open-source software
Yup, yet another attempt at a blog. This time about open-source software and related topics.
As of this weekend I’m officially running a dual boot machine at home (Fedora 10 -KDE 4.2 beta 2 / Windows XP). At work I’ve been using Fedora for a while now due to some sort of company policy (I work at a Webhosting company – we offer hosting on Linux servers). My co-worker convinced us (= made us all) to install Fedora to better understand what we are working with and he couldn’t have been more right. Working with Fedora made me interested in Linux again. I tried FreeBSD a few years ago – I know, BSD != Linux, but I kinda lost interest due to new interests in programming. Anyway, this weekend it was time to make the switch again. This time at home and mainly because I fell in love with KDE 4.2. The speed, the eye-candy, the possibility’s, widget, plasma, usability are just a few of the pro’s.
I will be using this blog to post opinions, statements and details about my journey into open-source software which will hopefully end up in writing and/or modifying software for Linux / KDE. Until that time I will bore the heck out of you with useful stuff I run in to.
