My last two days of work... dunno how I feel about the whole
situation. I am very greatful for having this job, the more
gnu/linux experience the better... also it was satisfying...
when there are gnu/linux questions I'm on the top tier of
people asked... not bad for an intern at a company that uses
Linux as the basis of thier products. But on the flip side I
wouldn't call them a GNU/Linux Company of an Open Source
company... I mean over here they just use GNU/Linux for
thier products, not to much giving back, and not that much
Open Sourcing going on... but hey GNU/Linux does make a
great server Operating System, and they know that, and
This is my last year at college, which means I have to start
thinking about my career... I really want to work for an
Open Source company, and I'm gonna try my hardest to do just
that... the thought of working for someone like Anderson
Consulting or Paine Webber (like most CS graduates at my
school), turns my stomach. Though I do tell myself, that if
I do have to take a job with a company like that, the money
is good, and I can code Open Source at night.
For as long as I can remember I've wanted to work for
myself, start a small business of some kind... I have this
great idea to create a software company that creates Open
Source software aimed at Small Business Consultants.. I was
a consultant for awhile and know exactly what kind of
software they need, and I think there is a lucrative market
for it, I just don't particular wanna solicit for funding,
and I'd definately need some funding, so maybe I'll hook up
with the right person who will want to do the funding end of
I'm trying to make a conscious effort to call "linux"..
GNU/LINUX... I had this revalation the other night, and RMS
is right, it is GNU/LINUX... I won't try to persuade people
to say it though, either you get it or you don't.
