OSNews, Generic OSes Hobbies. Where would the computer industry be without them? Arguably, there wouldn't be a computer industry had it not been for hobbyists in the first place. The ineffable need to scratch an itch does still percolate even in this closed down world of big mainstream technology from big companies opposed to the little guy innovating. OSNews asks, what are you working on? We want to hear from you about your hobby projects (technology related or otherwise) to get a sense of what the community is cooking up for love of it, rather than because you're paid to do so. Share and enjoy!

I've lately been questioning if I have perhaps gone too far down the rabbit hole with regards to technology. It seems as though I spend far too many hours hopping from one Linux distro to the next, getting tired of it's perceived shortcomings and jumping ship to Windows, falling in and out of love with Apple and just generally finding myself in a state of flux. So my "hobby" now is to try to claw my way back up from Underland, take a step back away from all of it and figure out what actually matters in my life. Last night I never opened my laptop once. Instead I sat down and read a magazine...but it was Linux Journal so maybe I'm too far gone ;)

Steampunk! ;)

If I had the tools, that's what I'd do anyway. ;)

I hear ya...

For the last 6 months, I've been seriously re-considering my computer-addiction situation as well... and I've used my home machine(s) far less during that time.

These days I try to get outside a little more often ;)
