Linux Universe

Technology is a universal language that crosses all boundaries.  "Hardware compatibility" and "software compatibility" are inadequate to describe how applied tech works wherever you go in the world.

Even though I'm a fan of Linux, it is still a pleasant surprise when Linux works perfectly in places where it may seem misplaced - such as Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur.  These are the experiences tech users take for granted.  There's a certain smug satisfaction that Wi-fi, protected or otherwise, is easy prey to a distribution like openSUSE wherever you are.  I'm ashamed to admit that there are still trips overseas that makes me think twice about bringing my openSUSE-powered netbook rather than my dual-booted Windows 7-Ubuntu portable.  And then it all works out just fine.
