Why are we not using Linux?

When we have free will, why not use a free operating system?

Hello everyone!

It has been a while since I have written here but I promise to be regular from now on. Something that has been disturbing me since quite some time is - Why are we not using Linux? Considering the advantages for geeks as well as non-geeks, Linux should be at a preference over the traditionally popular propreitary operating systems.

I personally have been a Linux user since quite some time now, even though I was not comfortable with the command line interface. I used KDE then and use GNOME now. Most people are still living in the misconception that Linux simply means a command driven shell. This is absolutely wrong! Linux is not even that. Linux, technically speaking is the kernel. The core. You cannot see Linux at work. What you see is only an interface, command line or GUI. A user is not meant to see the operating system anyways. He only sees Applications.

Funny pic - Floppies as coasters!

Ironical, isn't it. Something we payed a lot for in the past is a coaster today. Just like people buying a treadmill, which becomes a sort of stand to dry clothes on.



This is a pic from our office. Floppies actually make for the best coasters.

The world is weird, so are the flash-drives!

This is the weirdest flash drive ever! My question - "Are you gonna eat that?"




I am just laughing my ass off!

The Heart Of A Goof

"The Heart of a Goof" was actually a collection of short stories written by the famous P.G. Wodehouse. With due respect to his work, I'd like to present my own short story very similar to his in essence but very different in nature. This is about an engineering student, who also happens to be my very good friend (name withheld for obvious reasons). Let's just call my friend - P (I would use 'X' but it's too cool to use on him ;)).

P is alright otherwise but when it comes to commitments and relationships, the "Goof" comes into the picture! So, what is a 'goof' anyways? Lexically speaking, it means - An incompetent, foolish, or stupid
person.

Heart of a Goof

So, P unfortunately (fortunately for us though), has a major crush on a girl in his batch, let's just call her Q. Somehow he gets her number or to be precise, steals it from a friend's phone. That's alright unless you use it, right? So, he called me up and asked me what to do. I simply told him to not use it. It isn't cool to do this (why I feel this is a long story, but I will cut it short for you. I messaged a girl,

Can I make "FRANDSHEEP" to you..? ....Piss off freak!

Please take some time and ask yourself about what the Internet is primarily used for today? Reference..? Ok, look for a better answer.. Downloading..? Even better.. Communication..? Getting hot.. try more.. Social Networking..? BINGO! In the past few years, apart from pornography, the most of the Internet browsing traffic is used for Social Networking websites. I mean really, face it, how many people do you know who don't have a Facebook/Orkut/Hi5/MySpace profile?

I am guessing such stuff possibly began with a geek looking for his High School crush or something. I am only guessing. Or maybe he wanted to
