  • Story Type: Interview; Groups: Linux
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a cloud based file backup system that put Linux FIRST? One that made it so we didn’t have to use FUSE? One that didn’t put out a Windows client first and the Linux client was an afterthought? One that you could get installed and configured quickly and easily which would allow you to ‘set it and forget it’? Me too!

The GNU Radical

  • Yet Another Me; By Sergio Durigan Junior (Posted by AwesomeTux on Jan 15, 2015 10:14 AM EDT)

"A friend of mine, Blaise, once told me not to introduce myself as “... what you would call a radical...”. He had listened to me talking to a person who were questioning what a Free Software activist does. My friend's rationale, to which I totally agree, is that you must let the other person decide whether she thinks you are a “radical” or not. In other words, if you say you are a “radical” from the beginning, it will probably induce the other person to a pre-judgement about you, which is not good for you and for her."
