First day in Addis Ababa, after the introductory session for this 10 days Linux training.
Interesting new quotes I picked up from the excellent presentation of Dr. Dawit:
Much that I bound I could not free Much that I freed returned to me
(I didn't manage to transcribe the attribution)
And this one for Bubulle, about translation:
When you speak to me in my language you speak to my heart when you speak to me in English you speak to my head
Incomplete list of questions I've been asked, in
bogosort -n order:
- How do I get support?
- Are the configuration files always the same accross different distributions?
- What is the level of interoperatibility between the various Linux distributions? And between different Unix-like systems?
- Does plug and play work well when I change hardware?
- Can I access NTFS partitions?
- How do I play multimedia files in restricted formats?
- I heard that NFS has security problems: can it be secured, or are there other file sharing alternatives?
- Can I access a desktop remotely?
- Can I install Linux on a computer where there's Windows already? Do I need to partition?
- Can I be sure to find drivers for my hardware?
I'm happy to find that we've been successful in building more and more good answers for these questions.
