>> As long as we don't have the numbers, what we say
>> is only a ideology. there isn't much we can do about it.
>That is certainly not true. Since there is a mukta O/S and a mukta
network to connect to we do have a choice and we can exercise it.
Yes, thats the first step. To truly exercise freedom, we require others to be free because we live in a society of dependence. Hence we still need the numbers.
There is a need to produce programs with extremely simple user interface for non-tech folks who use the computer. More importantly they cannot be ignored. From a security stand point, our security is as good as its weakest link, the non-tech user.
From an OS stand point, Microsoft windows is extremely easy to navigate for a non-tech user. Our free OS is not still there yet.
>>>You can at least do this. Backup your data. It _is_ your data and
external USB storage is not too expensive. Incremental backup does
not use too much bandwidth. Write some pipe or plugin to do this and
make it a floss project.
that is a good foss project idea. there apparently is something on that lines
>>>B. Avoid monopolies. If your friend uses Gmail then insist on using
Yahoo! and complain loudly if the two services do not co-operate.
More choice is mostly better!
Its designed not to work. All the 'free extra services' can be exercised only if you stick to one of them. Using two different services for the same thing now becomes grossly inconvenient.
