Well, all of our posts so far have been on the cooking side of things, so I thought we’d have a shot at diversifying a little and write something on one of our other obsessions: Linux!
Amy’s Ramblings kindly informed us today of a recent article on Techworld.com about how the UK government has recently begun extolling the environmental virtues of being a Linux user – interesting news, and something to definately commend them for!
I know that some government departments over here (in Australia) run some of the more proprietry breeds of Linux, but I wouldn’t go as far as saying its use is widespread, let alone endorsed by government. In fact, the opposite is probably true, with the current administration being strongly pro-business (and so probably, by extension, pro-Windoze).
It is good to know that these kinds of analyses and critiques are beginning to surface in the mainstream – especially if it means more Linux friendliness and less Microsoft dependence!
I for one won’t be buying in to the Vista farce!
