GNU/Linux is hard to install, but by different reasons it was at 90's. Nowadays is difficult to understand that we have more than a hundred distributions but they are all the same thing, not mentioning that old question: which distro should I install? I can't believe a normal user (one does just want read and write e-mails and his personal docs) should and will bother himself by learning more than he needs to know, and he wants to know as little as possible. Would this user need to know how to install a distro? Maybe. Will be hard to him to know which distro he should install? Definitively.

In late 2014 several companies came together to form the Dronecode Foundation, a nonprofit that brings together existing open source drone projects and assets under one umbrella organization governed by The Linux Foundation.
The applications and capabilities of UAVs are advancing at a phenomenal rate, and the cost of these systems is decreasing at an equally impressive rate. The Dronecode Foundation aims to keep them open.

Open source is changing the world.
Introduction
Opensource.com is a platform for discussing the ways open source is changing the world. 

Our articles explore how embracing open source principles and practices — like transparency, community, participation, collaboration, meritocracy, rapid prototyping, and sharing — can lead not only to a powerful method of engineering software, but to a whole way of life. An open source way of life.

We strive to share or write stories with you that are inspiring testaments to the wonderful and often surprising innovations a commitment to open source values can generate.

Note: opensource.com is a Red Hat community service, but our stories and authors come from all different fields. Join the open source conversation today!
