Essential Linux

The Essentials Of Linux & Windows – Welcome to a blog about Linux!

Ok…so it’s a blog about Linux and the first thing you might ask (if you’re like me) is “What the heck is that?”

Linux is a software program.

And…that’s all I know.  So although my title is about linux, I’m probably better able to talk about a Linx…which is the linux without U.

How crazy is that people use computers everyday but we lack the knowledge of what the internet is made of or what most programs are made out of.

So, in this blog, my goal will be to explore different software’s that are used online and how they can help you make the most of your online experience.  A little history and a little user advice and both you (the reader) and I (the author) will hopefully expand our computer base knowledge.

I will not stick to just talking about software though.  I will also talk about hardware because you need it in order to run software in the first place.

So..if you are ignorant to Linux, like me, here’s a basic run down of what it is:

Basically, Linux is an operating system.  It’s a program (software) that is on a computer which allows the main operator to access devices and make them perform a specific function.

Basically Linux is very much like Windows and OSX, but it is not the limousine of operating systems.

Linux is actually larger.  It helps to power the New York Stock Exchange,mobile phones, and many other devices.

Explained in these terms, Linux is very similar to other operating systems, such as Windows and OS X.

Linux is made in a collaborative effort and no one person can be solely responsible for its creation or support.  Everyone involved in development of Linux share costs and research.

Cameras That Spy on the Unsuspecting

One thing I absolutely love about blogging is that I can really talk about whatever I want.

There are no limits!

I can type in an airplane and talk about them.

I can type in a limo and talk about them.  Speaking of which..my all time favorite limousine is the Ford Excursion one that one of my friends has.

I don’t know how many of you know someone that owns limos but I do.  I’ve been learning a lot about them lately because I’m helping a friend of mine.

Why does he have limos?

That’s a funny story!  He bought a limousine in his mid 20′s for one reason…..and it wasn’t to make money.

It’s probably the funniest thing I’ve ever heard about limos in my life.

My friend Jim bought a limousine because he got a DUI (that’s the bad part of the story).

Jim is a great guy, he just made a stupid mistake and I’m not going to make excuses for him.  But I will say that I’ve learned that just because someone has a DUI doesn’t mean they are forever to hold a scarlet letter.  However, if there is anyone that I know that could really wear a scarlet letter (of DUI) on their shirt, it would be Jim.

He does it in Style.

He bought that limousine because…..well…Let me quote him: “I wasn’t going to fucking be driven around like  a baby because I couldn’t drive, so I bought a damn limousine and hired a driver. I figured if I had to rely on someone else to drive me around, it was going to be in a limo.”

Tell me that’s not one of the craziest ways you’ve ever heard of someone getting into a limo business before!  This is who he fancies himself as.  Good luck with that Jim!

Anyways…back to my blog post (wow…I really got off track there!)

I wanted to talk about the wild life cameras and how they can photograph the ever mysterious and hard to get a hold of: LINX.

Why?

Because Linux reminds me of Linx.  And I really didn’t want to talk about Linux again.

Maybe I can come up with a cool acronym for Linux.  Let’s see….

Little Iguanas Necking Under Xylophones

Uhmmmm…no.

Let me sleep on that one for awhile!  I’ll be happy to talk about the wildlife camera next time.

For now..I’m going to disappear like a linx and take a nap.
