Thanks for posting those links.  I would have never found them myself.


It was all over the technical sites at the time, not to mention ted.com of
course.  Practically anything related to computing technology is going to be
of interest to at least some members of this list. That isn' t enough reason
to post it here IMHO.

Even though it may have been OT wrt Fedora, it does show that the open
source paradigm is alive and gaining ground (imho).


How so? The presentation doesn't so much as mention open source. Besides
which, this is not in fact a discussion list about open source as such. It's
a list about Fedora.

This is in the list headers:

  "Community assistance, encouragement, and advice for using Fedora."

To me "encouragement" implies that there will be a future full of users of various needs and wants that should be welcomed to try to make whatever it is work for them. Who knows what new branch may grow because of some OT questioner that happens to be a Fedoran explorer?

Hope it's Friday where you're at. If I ever meet you the next pint is on me.

:m)
