I'll have to give eOS a look.
 
"Ultimately I believe that in order to provide a successful free alternative to commercial software, we, as a community, should develop uniform standards and agree on de facto entry channels that new adopters can easily find access to. "
I really appreciated Robert’s points about radicalism in the free and open source software community. Like Robert, I believe any move toward free and open source software is good. Obviously, if we all...

I thought of you when I read this quote from "The Red: First Light (The Red Trilogy Book 1)" by Linda Nagata -

"You are being used, Lieutenant. For what purpose remains unclear, but there is a force at large in the world interfering in the affairs of man. We built its house when we built the Cloud."

It's hard for me to put into a few words how awesome Willow Bend Automotive is. I have been taking my cars to Bob and Cindy since moving to Lutz in 1999. You will not find a more honest shop anywhere. They will never upsell you. They will repair ONLY what needs to be repaired. I've recommended them to friends, family, co-workers. There is no better value for auto repair in the Lutz area.
