Over the last fifteen years, I've tailored most of what I do personally and professionally to the open source way. It puts the needs of others first in my life, and I love showing people how they can use a secure and stable operating system on new or aging hardware to accomplish all of their technology needs and desires. I've also seen the open source community grow and hundreds of new, and constantly improving, projects and products emerge. I'm a regular user of OpenOffice and LibreOffice. And, I use Firefox, Audacity, OpenShot, VirtualBox, Wordpress, Drupal, Moodle, and more!
It's been exciting to see open source software and the open source way arrive from the periphery to center stage.

In a previous post I discussed how to introduce users to Linux, where the focus was on the software side of the conversation. This post is all about the hardware.
The reason I put hardware second is because if we can’t provide the user with the software they need there is no point in swapping out their hardware. Hardware is always a compromise, whereas software is not.
