    Atlanta Linux Fest 2009, Part One

    9:20 Am - I arrived 10 minutes ago after driving around the northern perimeter of I-285 in a horrendous rain.  It'd finally ceased when I pulled into the IBM Campus parking lot, passing cars with lots of geeky bumper stickers and personalized tags, like HACKR3...

    I Am 100% Microsoft Free

    In business, I never use Microsoft products for anything and personally I use Windows for only a few things. Otherwise it is Linux all the way. My distros of choice are Linspire and freespire because they are so easy to use.

    Really, I Haven't Booted Into Window$ In Months!
