Filed under

Yesterday I installed Debian Lenny on one of my workstations to give it a try. Ever since I tried Ubuntu I've been in love with it, but you all know how love can be blinding Wink So trying a new distribution every now and then is a good idea.

Aaah, the memories Smile

The stability is what you can expect from a modern Linux based OS.

Yet for all is accomplishments, the one thing it has not done is capture the popular imagination. As a result, I find myself wondering how free and open source software might present itself in the next thirty years to overcome this problem. Read more
