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.

It's kinda funny, but that whole "I just want to do work" attitude is why I use Linux. Linux has plusses and minuses, and I'm not going to claim it's an ideal home-desktop or gaming OS... but it is, at least for me, a wonderfully productive work environment.

And, actually, I've known a lot of "geeks," and also at least one theater major, who tried Ubuntu, for various reasons. None of them stuck with it when they couldn't play games... but at least they tried -- my point being that, while there's lots of OS X interest out there, there's Ubuntu interest too: it's just that Ubuntu isn't quite where non-technical users can deal with it yet.
