OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

Why not take it further?

Why not take this ideology further? Change countries every so often. Change jobs. Change friends, girlfriends, boyfriends. Change language.

I actually did this for about ten years. I ended up speaking six languages, and being seriously confused as to my own cultural identity. Not to mention I changed operating systems the whole time ;)

Why is that a problem? Why would you let culture dictate what you believe through your learning process?

I'm Chinese, but I moved to Australia at a young age. I'm glad that happened, because a lot of Chinese culture, just like other cultures, is just bullshit held up by tradition.
