BTW chicks dig Linux. UNIX programmers do it with pipes.
I'll have you know that I know Linux and heart the penguin. I started on Suse with a beautiful KDE, moved on to Red Hat (or down) and then eventually to Debian. My close friend taught me the hard way not to login as root. hahaha
I toyed with Ubuntu but it was too trendy...hahahaha
However, when you realize the definition of the word Ubuntu before Ubuntu was developed...you see that it's a beautiful word and worth its trendiness.
Ubuntu (Zulu/Xhosa pronunciation: [ùɓúntʼú]; English: /uˈbʊntuː/ oo-buun-too) or "uMunthu" (Chichewa) is an African ethic or humanist philosophy focusing on people's allegiances and relations with each other. Some believe that ubuntu is a classical African philosophy or worldview whereas others point out that as far as written sources are concerned, the idea that ubuntu is a philosophy or worldview has only been developed in recent years.[when?] The word ubuntu has its origins in the Bantu languages of southern Africa.
Good times. Good times.
I moved on to web development and content management systems and LOVE Joomla with a tremendous passion with Drupal coming in a very close second.
I think these open source projects are key to the success of non-profits and third world development myself. Yes, yes I do.
