exhalations

Now that I've received several holiday cards it's time to send out a few of my own. One of my few holiday traditions is to make my own holiday cards, so I got out the watercolors and slapped together a few mediocre cards. Maybe I'll get them sent before the new year.

The other day slashdot pointed to a good article on the size of Linux distributions. Of course it set off a round of rants from the Linux faithful, and it shows how limited their perspective is. The tone of most of the entries I read was that Linux is so modular that ANYONE should be able
to load the core and then add whatever packages are needed. The point of the article was that MOST users don't want to figure out how to do that, they want to use a computer to accomplish some basic tasks as simply and cheaply as possible.
