I just want some freedom

http://www.linuxuser.co.uk

Installing a piece of software recently, the set-up process invited me to become part of some customer improvement programme or other. I’ve no urge to do unpaid work on behalf of big software companies, so I looked to politely decline the offer, yet couldn't…

Well, I did it once, after years of Linux (registered with the Linux Counter on August 26, 1996). Then I went back to… Ubuntu Jaunty, then I switched to CentOS 5.3 and have built my own extra repository Odiecolon.repo, only to end in Xubuntu Karmic, now being on Ubuntu Karmic.

My recent experiences with some Linux distros

http://standardsandfreedom.net

Fall season is one of the busiest times for Linux distributions, and this year is also a very busy time for me. Ever since two years now I gradually migrated family and friends to Linux. This year these new Linux users gave me quite some work, especially on week-ends, and my own upgrade gave me quite some work.
