Open Sauce

The essence of linux lies in the fact that its all open to you,unmuffled, like a flower waiting to be unfurled. It resurfaces the age old perpetual practice of sharing knowledge,because that’s the reason behind existence of human race over all those years of calamities. You cut the communication and the system is back to the B.C.’s.

A scientist spends all his life,discovering something and puts it down on a paper. People read it and voila,,,, what took them just a couple of hours or days to gulp down ,took an effort of a lifetime for that scientist.

Some guy tunes it and tweaks it and you get something novel and more efficient

That’s how it works – the knowledge sharing that is.

And that’s the reason behind enormous popularity and resurgence of linux, it lets people communicate, contribute and volunteer.

So dip your fingers, coz this sauce is lip smacking, and the taste ,,its just keeps getting succulent. And a tweak in the recipe is always invited and cordially recepted.

vaLINa sky

Vanilla** (puns intended) sky embedded with linux.

Linux came knocking by on the doors when I was all curled up and sleeping, with memoirs of a long lost lady love,trying to wash them down my head with the spirit.

Looking out for something to curb my hangover with,and to my astonishment linux was all that and more. Well what else could have satiated the turmoiled mind trying to break free.The windows were there, but the panes were too dark to see through- opaque and obfuscated.With linux came hope to break free and it wasn’t long before, that my status message would read --- “ NEVER SINGLE,,,TUX IS HERE TO STAY”

**In information technology, vanilla is an adjective meaning plain or basic. The unfeatured version of a product is sometimes referred to as the vanilla version. The term is based on the fact that vanilla is the most popular or at least the most commonly served flavor of ice cream
