Really enjoyed the article - the enthusiasm is so clear. This, things like elive, slax, its the true spirit of open source, people just doing things they like, with other like minded people joining in. Its the antithesis of the 'computer as appliance' that 'just works' with 'user interface guidelines' fascism. These guys will never dream of doing Bob the paperclip. Its really a celebration of a certain innocent diversity and enthusiasm. We aren't all alike, one size doesn't fit all, and we are not here to control you or even hold your hand.

And who knows, might just try it.
