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.

The Press is NOT “enemies of the people"

On February 17, 2017, President of the United States Donald Trump declared on Twitter that CNN,NBC News, ABC, CBS,and The New York Times were "fake news" and the "enemy of the people" Over a year later Trump tweeted "FAKE NEWS media... is the enemy of the American People"

We are better than that...

Here in the united states we must remember that WORDS MATTER. When the leader of of the free world suggests revoking the FCC licenses of broadcast news organizations whose reporting he doesn’t like, that means something. The use of "enemies of the people" echoes of some of history's most murderous leaders. 

  • Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte proclaimed that “Just because you're a journalist you are not exempted from assassination, if you're a son of a bitch.”
  • With Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, artists and politicians were designated enemies and many were sent to hard labor camps or killed. Others were stigmatized and denied access to education and employment.
  • Under Chairman Mao, millions of people died in a famine brought about by his Great Leap Forward, it was a phrase he used against anyone who opposed him.
Everyone, regardless of political affiliation, must come together to condemn the phrase “enemies of the people".
