Short bio: Computer Scientist, FOSS supporter (read more)
Tux Machines (TM)-specific
If you're a regular reader of our news, you're probably well-aware that I like to rant about different things from time to time. It could be anything... DRM, failed game sequels, digital music, DTV transition, you name it. Once in a while though, I'll receive a bit of flack for whatever I ranted about, and one perfect example of this was with regards to last week's posting, "iMagic OS: Commercial Linux Distro Gone Wrong". After posting, I received a rather straight-forward e-mail from Carlos La Borde, the CEO of iMagic OS. I'll tackle some points here.
In the e-mail, Carlos stressed to me that iMagic OS isn't "lackluster", nor is their support non-existent. He noted that his team goes the extra mile where support is concerned, and that thousands of man-hours have been poured into the distro. I don't doubt this, but as I mentioned to Carlos, my assumptions were all based on what I saw on their website. The fact is, the information was lacking, and given that there were no screenshots available for showing off some of the distro's major features, I figured I had all of the information I needed to prepare a posting.
