This is probably a rhetorical posting since this area seems to be most frequented by people whom are already Linux enthusiasts, but I wanted to share anyway just in case any other newbies stumbled in to this section of BC.

 

While camping over the weekend, I broke one of my usually self-imposed rules... I brought my netbook with me. And I took some time to watch two documentary's about Linux and some of its history. While The Code (2001) and Revolution OS (2001) are somewhat older films, they were totally awesome! Conception, origin, history, challenges, the inevitable spread around the world -- it's all there and more.

 

There are obviously plenty of great talks, presentations, etc., on YouTube, TED, and elsewhere for those that prefer more concise topics. But if you can spare a few minutes for each documentary I'm sure you won't be disappointed if you have any interest in Linux.

 

(Hey, if any of you Linux guru's know of any similar films, please share the titles!)

Reference:


A programmer's wife sends him to the store for a gallon of milk,

and she adds the instructions, "If there are eggs, buy a dozen."

The programmer goes to the store and returns home with 13 gallons of milk.

Hi Jeremy

 

Have yet to digest the links and follow up, but can tell you that in earlier series of "The Big Bang Theory", some of the laptops (Sheldon's and others) I spotted as having the familiar purpley-brown of an Ubuntu Unity desktop.

 

Keep rockin' with Linux :thumbup2:

I'm all over it... Just waiting a few more days (Sept. 21st, maybe?) for the second season to finish up. Wifey and I like to binge-watch good shows, so we have to wait just a few more days. But believe me, it's been on the list for a few months now.

 

Cheers, mate!
