what real value can add linux to mankind?

  • efficiency – less power consumed – less waste – because it runs well on old hardware as well
  • transparency – should actually dissalow tyrannie and dictatorship – because you SHOULD acutally be in control of all your private data – including your movement data and online banking passwords
  • almost all of the internet is linux powered
    • facebook is 99% linux powered
    • with great power – there comes great responsibility to keep the infrastructure that people depend on secure and running.
      • did i say that Minix can restart a crashed driver without crashing the OS itself?
  • Linux + MDADM can do RAID1 with more than 2 HARDDISKS!!! (have the same data written to 3x harddisks… so 2x can fail without a problem.)
    • …as far is known – almost NO expensive Hardware-RAID-Adapter CAN DO THIS! 😀
  • Linux is OSX for the rest of the Intel-Hardware not sold and supported by Apple 😀
