Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

You’ve grown up in a world where you take it as given that you basically have no freedom over your own purchases and equipment.


There you go, assuming. I'm not a 12yr old digital native, I'm Gen X, and so's he. I've experienced just as much computing history going by as he has.

And pardon me, but I do so own my computers, thank you very much. I build my own rigs and use Linux on them. Not Ubuntu either. I get my hands dirty messing with the engine and I enjoy it as much as I did messing with Spectrum clones or playing arcade games back in the day.

Doesn't mean I have to live in the past and not enjoy new technology. I loved the old stuff but they're gone and good writtens, we have much cooler toys now. Evolve, you silly old fossils.
