For the last 7 years:
- I haven't had a virus, worm or hacker in my computer.
- My computer hasn't had a single unexplained crash or blue screen.
- I've never installed anti-virus software.
- The same Linux installation I've had I've maintained. All I ever do is upgrade periodically as new OS releases go gold, but I've never done a fresh re-install "because the computer just got slow".
- I've never been asked by the computer to "register" with a company or "acquire" a "license" to operate it.
Of course, "boring computing" leaves me with plenty of time to:
- Develop software and earn money.
- Listen to music all night long, thanks to the best ausic player ever invented: Amarok.
- Go out and visit friends and girls.
