Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

Without vision we will perish

The end is near. No not the end of the world as we know it. It the end of the year is near. As we're faced with a new year, none of us can help but reflect on the past twelve months. I like so many sit back and think of who I was and what I was doing at the beginning of this year and compare it to now. Let us understand we're all born the same very naked and helpless but not hopeless. Every able-bodied person was born with free will ... the free will to make change ... to make your life whatever you want it to be. IT was Pearl S. Buck that said “ Life without idealism is empty indeed. We just hope or starve to death.”

Going into the New Year, hope is what many of us seek, but some unable to find. Buck went on to say, “You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.” Without vision we will perish; without Ideals we are lost. We are to be curious. With out that life can seem, well hopeless. We should have wonder. Wonder about where we all come from, how we came to be where we are today and where one appears to be going. Idealism enables one to claim the future for optimism takes no account of the present.

As I have said before we tend to get comfy thinking in a particular way. This comfort provides only an empty way. Resistance to change is a dead-end street. Old ideals and processes must be tossed aside so that new ones may be learned. At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, that strange new thoughts are possible. But when people begin to hope then vision enables them to believe the in the it idea can be done, and all the world wonders why it was not done long ago.“Life without idealism is empty indeed. We just hope or starve to death.”
