At least for me it is. And maybe for my blog as well. Not easy for me to start this post and not easy to figure out what to say/write now about it. So why not just getting right into it, eh?
Ok, fraggles, as you might have noticed my interest in SL is waning while I still find all things Linux and FOSS fascinating. Ok the first thing can be helped as I just decided to log into SL much more now and even start a new race series for TrYC. More about that later. The second thing, my Linux fetish, is more complicated and gives me a lot of headache.
See, I have no clue about how my Linux articles are perceived among my readership. Are you guys just barely tolerating them, are you bored, are you clicking them away immediately, do you get infuriated by that shit? Am I too preachy, too obnoxious, too much girl on a mission?
I’m sometimes treating you a bit like a classroom, I know. I really wanna go with you through all the hassle and the learning curve and find solutions for problems … oh hey, in case you decided to download and install a Linux distro of course. Else it won’t make much sense, wouldn’t it? See, peepels, it could be great, we could really do something, start something new here, build up a solid foundation of Linux users in the SL sailing community. I’m even imagining kinda inworld meetings, live discussions and panels. But for that to work I must know I’m not sending out messages into the vacuum, not shouting into the void.
To make it short: I need feedback! Let’s start with that shit right here and now, oké? So please, all readers (incl. the non-Linux types) fill in this questionaire for me. Mucho obrigado, merci beaucoup, danke, dankie, thank you. Much obliged.
- After reading Orcablog, have you decided or felt inspired to try out Linux?
- Are you at least reading articles about Linux or ignore that shit?
- Did you find Orca’s hopeless stammering helpful?
- Did you indeed go with a distro as recommended by Orca?
- How was your experience?
- Shall I go on preaching Linux in the new year?
- Would you be interested in in-world meetings and workshops?
- Where exactly are you on your journey into Linux? You still on Linux Lite, Mint, Ubuntu or are you rocking the big stuff like SUSE, Fedora or an Arch already?
Oh yes, and while we’re talking here so laid back about Linux shit … looksee here:
See, that’s one of the reasons why I love Linux so much. From time to time, depending on how I tuned my system, I’m getting system updates. This latest one with almost 72 MB of crunchy fresh data looks like the final year’s end update and will prolly catapult my system into the next millenium. And it will not only update my bare system but all my installed softwares as well. What it won’t do, however, is forcing my computer to install the update – like one certain other OS does – but I can do it whenever I fancy, I can uncheck certain things or completely ignore the update. But hey, this is for Manjaro, a distro I trust totally, so I just do it. System is still running. 😉
