What is your major goal in computers?

Like making a certain app portable, or start your own OS or something, what is it?

Mine is to create a program called Linux for kids, a kid gets a Laptop with Edubuntu or Edukubuntu (A KDE version of Edubuntu I might make if this becomes reality) installed on it, this is an effort to expose children to something other than Microsoft Winblows.

Windows vs. Linux

Unfortunately not everybody knows much about computers. Some people all they do is play solitaire, use word to type a quick letter, and check their email. So these people are better off paying for Windows. Like John said a while back, with OSS you are not paying for anything, therefore you have no "rights". You can't just call someone and tell them that they need to fix your computer. With OSS, you have to research the solution, or find the solution yourself. So, although I now prefer Linux, I don't try to get people to try it out if I know that they are "technologically challenged".
