Topic: Hello and Happy New Year
Hello, I have just learned about the Hyperbola project today from an article in Techrights (techrights.org). Now I can't wait to lose half of my documents in a botched attempt to put them on a USB stick really really quickly - last time I managed to rewrite everything including my company accounting to the january 2019 state- only to be able to see what this operating system looks like and feels like. I am sorry to see what Linux kernel is becoming so I think the new project for a different kernel is really promising.
I live in Geneva Switzerland and came from a too long stay at the university (human sciences), mainly putting off being an 'adult'. So finally because I did not want to climb a hierarchical academic ladder or to serve sandwiches in a fast food I am now a professional driver instead. (Low pay can be really offset by having a job that makes sense.) At the university I developed a violent case of allergy to Windows OS mainly because I had to fight with the OS and also with the 'antivirus' to be able to use my computer for a short while(before it froze again)- it was the 8 version that really went downhill. I even wasn't able to use Suse or such kind of distributions that looked too much like a windows desktop. While already rambling, I also think that the free software should not necessarily be 'gratis' but must always stick to the moral and ethical standard.
I will be trying this OS soon and in the meantime I wish you Hyperbola users and developers a very Happy New Year.
P.S. I also realized that nobody would probably say 'My windows' as I say 'My Debian, My Trisquel and My Emacs'. 'Cause even if you paid for it was never 'yours'.
