Making the Future Happen In Linux

Filed under
Linux

A consequence of Linux's amazing growth is a growing new user population that is not accustomed to having any power. Folks, you have the power-- you don't have to sit around all sad because Linux is missing an application or feature that you need. What you do is roll up your sleeves and help make it happen, because that is how Linux works, and that is what makes Linux--and all Free and Open Source software-- so good.

I started writing computer howtos because there were so few good ones. Ken Starks builds Linux computers for children and does hand-on Linux teaching and support. Cathy and Earl Malmrose build and sell excellent, fairly-priced Linux computers. Jon "maddog" Hall challenged some Linux developers, who were complaining about not being allowed access to source code for a certain library, to write their own. And they did, and it was better.
