- Radio Program:
Two days ago, I was invitated to speech in the Christmas
Special radio program [Imatica]. The topic of the
program was a debate
around the SO world, both technically and philosophy
persons was invited, one "expert" from windows world, a Mac
enthusiast and me to be the linux and free software advocator.
It was really interesting and we spend more than an hour
talking about diferences, advantages, ethical aspects and a
few more topics about this eternally discussion...
I hope, I was able to persuade some listeners to try our SO
and discover the freedom...
- Religious experience ;-):
Yesterday, I was triing to compile the new and hot 2.4.17
with the impressive preemptive patch, and i coudn't do it
cause of bintuils problems on debian sid... I decided to
enter into kernelnewbies channel from the openprojects
irc net. I usualy never use the irc to solve my linux
problems: google, mailing list archives and documentation
are my inspiration fonts, but I decide to try it because I
was unable to find a solution. After explain my problem to
everyone and wait some seconds, rick van riel and another
kernel hacker helps me to get my 2.4.17 running within a few
minutes only following their instructions.
Talking some minutes with one of the kings of the kernel
development, impressed me a lot. It was really really great
and it increases my love and gratitude for the huge
community around the free software.
