How many of u here are from a non CSc field, but got obsessed with GNU/Linux and FOSS,if so why?
I came into this bcoz of Kali Linux, jus was curious about the hacking stuff going on back in school and started looking into it and discovered this whole new world. But it was really after when i felt like shit ,knowing how big brothers where treating us, i was into all this privacy based and ethical things. What i mostly like about gnu/Linux or FOSS is that u can be part of the community and help each other. And you can pay each developer or community of developers and support them, so no single entity is bagging everything . If this was the way everything was, all the central power who have no moral or ethical vision for humanity would have never existed. So thats y i got so obsessed with all this even tho its generally considered irrelevant to a person from my field. Whats ur story?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).
Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
