I am the very model of an open source sensational

Filed under
Humor

With apologies to Gilbert and Sullivan. I have twisted their Pirates of Penzance song to "I am the very model of an open source sensational". Sung to the tune of "I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General".

I am the very model of an open source sensational
I've information freedom, and forums quite reactional
I know the gods of Linux, and I quote the fights historical
There are Torvolds, Greg and Stallman, in order categorical

Programmers are elated, too, with matters analytical
They understand the licences, both simple and quadratical
With kernel modules inserted there are many different views
They have many fun facts about the love life of the mighty GNU's

They have many fun facts about the love life of the mighty GNU's
They have many fun facts about the love life of the mighty GNU's
They have many fun facts about the love life of the mightytighty GNU's

Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet - Fabulous

I have to say, Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet shattered my expectations. Obliterated them. Overall, I was expecting a distro that would be about as good as its parent. Instead, I got this fine piece of digital machinery, which purrs and meows and growls like a turbo-charged tiger, if this silly metaphor makes any sense. Or is it an analogy? Now, one tiny software glitch, plus one big regression that affects the entire family. That's the sum of my complains. On the plus side, Xubuntu fully supports the hardware, including the tricky UEFI stuff, it's fast, robust, elegant, rich in software and features, simple and fun to use, and it works well with anything I've thrown at it. By far the best distro of this year. I don't give out 10/10 lightly, but I'm inclined to do that right now, even though the few tiny problems we've had prevent me from doing that. However, the whole package reminds me of Fuduntu, really. Pure and simple and just good. 9.99999/10. Try it, you won't be disappointed. We're done here. Read more

A New Firefox OS phone

Last Monday, I bought the phone anyway. I must say that I am very pleased by its performance and very cheap price. One can swap the SIM card to use the phone with another carrier here, too. Read more
