Vlad Dolezal blogs about “Why we use Linux”
We tell people we use Linux because it’s secure. Or because it’s free, because it’s customizable, because it’s free (the other meaning), because it has excellent community support…
But all of that is just marketing bullshit. We tell that to non-Linuxers because they wouldn’t understand the real reason. And when we say those false reasons enough, we might even start to believe them ourselves.
But deep underneath, the reason remains.
We use Linux because it’s fun !!
I can’t agree any lesser.
Since the day i migrated to this brighter face of the planet, ive been spending more fun, 1 on 1 time with my computer in tweaking stuff to my likes. Of course there were the troughs with undesired effects, but recovering from them and bringing about the desired change was a cherished learning experience by itself.
