Come and Discover Linux

What's the most compelling reason to switch to Linux?

It's low maintenance. I don't have anti-virus software because I don't use it. I don't use it because I don't need to. I don't "defrag" my hard drive because the linux file system doesn't need to be defrag'd like Windows. It is stable. The Linux operating system is used in 95% of servers in the world for a reason. There will be bugs in any computing system. So the question should be how long does it take to fix a vulnerability. In the open source world of linux, anyone can look at the code and try to fix it. The more transparent the code is the more likely that bugs would be discovered and fixed.

It's very customizable. The packages are modular. You can customize everything even the kernel. There are hundreds of distributions for every use and circumstances. You can try different desktop environments that will suit your need and personal preference. The more you go deeper into linux the more choices and options are available to you.

If you are new to linux  then congratulations. You are about to begin a voyage of discovery. You are going to find computing fun again.

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
