My brother (new window) has been hassling me for a few weeks now, asking me how to get Microsoft Windows to start automatically when he turns on his laptop, instead of Fedora Linux. I’ve been telling him that it’s a bit like asking me to buy him a gun so he can shoot himself. However, in spite of my concern for his electronic welfare, today I caved. Today I decided if he wants to shoot himself, he must learn the consequences for himself. This morning, with a heavy heart, I sent him the instructions.
Linux loses a user today. But more than that, the principles of free software lose a user today. It’s a sad day in Bangkok this morning.
