Being a geek*
Who's this geek chap that you speak of and why are you so proud to be one?
Being a geek is all about curiosity. The need to find out how things work, how they break and how they get fixed. It’s about being an explorer in your field. It’s about not being content with the limits set for you. It’s about defining your own limits, and if that doesn’t work, redefine the rules. It’s about an intuition that says that you can do it even when others think it’s not possible.
What’s the difference between geeks and everyone else and why are so many of them playing with this FOSS thing?
This is not a Howto. It’s just the way it is.
