De-Programming Windows Refugees

,----[ Quote ]
| Our mission, for those who choose to accept it, is to 
| understand that de-programming these proprietary refugees is 
| Job One. It is not a job for the impatient or faint of heart 
| because there are so many layers to penetrate, especially for 
| Windows users who think PCs are Windows computers, that 
| malware, instability, DRM, insane EULAs, and overpriced under-
| featured crud are facts of life. That we have no right to 
| control our own property or data, and it is perfectly OK to 
| commit all manner of invasions into our personal lives. Somehow 
| we must communicate that some actual study and learning are 
| required for all platforms and devices, and that whining and 
| wailing in despair don't accomplish much.



What They're Using: Christian Einfeldt, Producer, the Digital Tipping Point

,----[ Quote ]
| I have six basic different uses for free, open-source software: 1) my law
| office practice; 2) managing and editing video for the Digital Tipping Point
| Project; 3) running a 25-seat Edubuntu lab at a public middle school as a
| volunteer in San Francisco; 4) placing ACCRC.org Linux computers in
| classrooms; 5) giving out ACCRC.org Ubuntu computers to friends, neighbors
| and the children who attend that school; and 6) supporting San Francisco's
| Tech Connect program by demonstrating Linux boxes at events for nonprofits
| and low-income individuals.
