Wow... 2 months. But I'm still here!

I now run Gentoo Linux on my machine. It runs great for now, although I tend to do my "emerges" before going to bed. :)

People complain that emerge distances the user from the machine and that newbies are excited because they're compiling stuff where they're doing nothing but run a script. It's true, but anything to make sure newbies don't go back to windows, eh?

I for one didn't switch back this time. It's about the 10th time I try out linux and one every previous attempt, I switched back to Microsoft Windows the following month. So two months for me is a record and that shows how much linux has matured.


I'd like to start a business dealing with open source software. I'd like it to be community based, like a cooperative with members, but also to service the open source community. I'm gathering my ideas these days and I'll see where that idea goes. I'll talk more about it when I'm ready. In the meantime, I'll keep coding in c# for my boss' closed source, highly expensive software! :(
