One of the reasons I got an Apple computer was my recurrent fantasy of learning more about Unix, which is at the core of the OS X operating system. I did some exploration when I first got my Powerbook, but I realize now I’m not obssessed enough to really pursue this. Bottom line: I’m not a hard-core techie. In any event, the really hard-core techies gravitate towards Linux, and not just for computers. The A-list geeks learn Linux and then try to install it in every form of device they encounter. At TechShow I learned about this extreme Linux-installation challenge, which is way beyond my paltry abilities.
My goal now is to learn to make the Perfect Bloody Mary. It’s easier and makes a lot more sense. At least to me.
