Politically, I am in no way a conservative, in fact, I can’t help but shake my heads at many conservatives I see on TV these days. However when it comes to the computer software I use, I am somewhat conservative. The reason is that I love it when my computer works, literally. Certain people I know, love to run the latest versions of everything, and occasionally have to fix their machines because something broke. I don’t like that, I like to just be able to go over to my computer, sit down and just use it. This is why I don’t use Windows, or any Microsoft software at all. If we look aside the fact, that Microsoft doesn’t give you any freedom in relation to your computing, all their stuff is just broken out of the box. I can’t think of one piece of Microsoft software, that doesn’t simply suck, and is broken out of the box.
One thing I plan to do for the foreseeable future is to use KDE 3.5.x, until KDE 4.x is a full replacement for what I do. And that could take a while to come, which is why I appreciate the KDE has got 3.5.10 coming out next month.
