I have had the feeling for the last year that there has been a revolution waiting in the wings within the Computer Industry itself something the big boys of the industry have been trying to suppress in the hope it will go away but it is not if anything getting stronger and stronger!
What am I talking about is Open Source Software which has breathed a life back into an industry which frankly over the past decades has been in the doldrums because the major computer players have put profit before users and innovation!
But like the music industry the computer industry from development to retail corporations have been slow to react to the revolution if anything tried to suppress the inevitable change much to the detriment to themselves and users alike!
Myself as a user of Open Source software from operating systems to packages is frustrated by the current situation because I know other users are being short changed and they having a bad experience using computers because the big computer companies refuse to change for the better because of greed and profit!
I wonder just how loud you have to shout before people know they are not getting best deal from the big boys of computer industry and there are real alternatives to their software out there!
