The big deception of #Ubuntu against #Debian


I have been using #GNU and #Linux since at least tenyears, my very first distro was Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon, I still remember the sound of the drums at my very first installation, it was amazing and it was when I fell in love with the #floss. I was even more amazed by Hardy Heron, simply perfect in every shape. I used to have a #Gnome, #Compiz and a wonderful desktop that looked like a paper comics, super cool and super exciting, fortunately ten years later I still continue to be excited for any improvements.

However, back to these days, I learned about the meaning of #BDFL, and my flirt with Ubuntu started to crumble, actually the idea of community with on top a dictator, even if benevolent, didn't sound very exiting for me, never. This is the reason why I left Ubuntu to jump in Debian.

Debian is a true community of volunteers, it is the backbone of everything is #deb based, without Debian we would not have Ubuntu, #Mint, #Elementary, etc... Even if today Ubuntu might be build totally in upstream with Snap it will never have the same manpower and talents that Debian has. In ten years the main investment of Canonical/Ubuntu has been in marketing and PR. While #RedHat invests a lot of resources in engineers stuff Ubuntu invests the majority of its effort in marketing, and it really works

In lesser than four years Ubuntu become the OS leader in the #web #sever #market, a place historically belonged to Debian:
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=139372#p687205

Today Ubuntu is almost a leader in the Linux realm but is it really worth of this title?
Ubuntu stated to make a lot of improvements on itself however it reduces dramatically the amount of packages under its control and leaves the majority of them on the hands of the communities, that makes Ubuntu quite unsafe every time you grab a package outside the main repo.

I was saying Ubuntu patches and improves itself to be better than Debian, actually the latter is a collection of packages: it fixes bugs, it does the minimal and everything is almost 99% upstream. Because the premises Ubuntu must be better. Actually Ubuntu has a better installer however Debian support many more architectures, that means changing the installer to make it more friendly might be a worthless task if you are going to break something that actually works, Ubuntu has a better theme, Debian uses the one of free contributors it does not contract professionals. But is Ubuntu very much better than Debian? Is everything that Ubuntu does worthy?

If you are Debian user you do not need to read anything about it, but if you don't then apparently not!
**
A recent article by [b]Phoronix
mainly, based on giga ethernet test, shows how Debian constantly performs better than Ubuntu (which usually ships always a newer kernel than Debian). Someone can argue that this test is not indicative because it is strictly related to the hardware in use but if you read regularly the phoronix's article **always[/b] Debian performs better than Ubuntu.

Hence if every tweaks of Ubuntu to be better than Debian is actually ineffective, I can deducted that everything is basically vaporware just a marketing trick.

Today Canonical makes a lot of money with Ubuntu, you are free to use Ubuntu but is not better than Debian, it is not lead by true community, it is sponsored by a BDFL with a clear scope since the beginning. He did a lot of mistakes (Ubuntu Phone, Unity, etc...) but eventually he got what he was looking for. But the days when Ubuntu meant I can not install Debian are finished long time ago, today Ubuntu surpassed Debian in every field but not for technical reasons.

I will never be tired to repeat it: support only true community distributions of volunteers!

@Miloslav Číž its weird, money screws things up, it steals focus and intention. A popular topic is written about and a bunch of people will write about the same thing with slant a or b or c. Cos that is where the 'money' is.
If switch is biased and is advertising #opensource that isn't open source - then they are a bad writer and one should be able to demand a refund??
Switch website is free but there is a lack of qualification on why the suggested alternatives are 'more ethical' or how they have vetted their suggestions.
This is a problem if we want to help newcomers make the leap to #decentralization #privacy and #opensource.
There is a whole generation of people who do not know that windows is windows cos it is a window into what was DOS. Am I wrong?
 
I would really like to know what your criteria for inclusion in your lists, How do you vet them? How are they 'more ethical'? If you are promoting #privacy #opensource etc. I imagine you must have a set of criteria the alternatives must meet?

Also thanks @Miloslav Číž

2019 status of jailbreak apple devices tools overview - trying to unlock ipad 3 and ipad 4

Image/Photo

to be straight: have not managed yet to unlock a pin locked ipad 3 and ipad 4 and/or recover the data.

it is easy to just overwrite the ipad with the latest firmware via itunes.

but i want to backup and extract all possible files before that.

if you want to jailbreak your Apple device, basically there are a lot of tools and you need to find the one that suits your hardware and firmware model.

not an easy task.

have an older ipad 3 to wich the PIN was lost (no it is not stolen, it’s from a relative who forgot it and also can not remember his itunes password (alzheimer is very comon these days)). (Model: A1430 iPad 3, Early 2012, +Wi-Fi + Cellular, 30-pin connecto) but latest redsn0w (redsn0w_win_0.9.15b2.zip) says „iPad 3 is not supported“ (probably it has a newer iOS installed than 5.1.1)

this site helps you find and download newer and older firmwares for your device: (GOOD JOB! 🙂

https://ipsw.me/device-finder

https://ipsw.me/iPad3,3

http://www.getios.com/ here you also can get a lot of firmware versions for your iDevice.

also interesting: https://nerdpol.ch/tags/jailbreak

theory:

  • pull an (encrypted) backup from the device
    • not possible via itunes with PIN locked ipad
    • most approaches use some exploit to load their own ramdisk and get access to the device
  • via brute force, find the decryption PIN
  • extract the data
  • reset the device
…. not so easy.

„Imagine a computer which is protected with an OS level password – we can still access the hard disk data by booting a live CD, or by removing the hard disk and connecting it to another machine. When we compare computers to the iPhone, it is an embedded device. So it is not easy to take out the chips (hard disk) and dump data into it. To perform iPhone forensics, we use the Live CD approach. As the iPhone has only one serial port, we are going to load custom OS over the USB to access the hard disk of the device. The problem here is: the iPhone only loads firmware designed by Apple.

In order to create and load the forensic toolkit, first we need to understand iPhone functions at the operating system level. iOS (previously known as iPhone OS) is the operating system that runs on all Apple devices like iPhone, iPod, Apple TV and iPad. iOS is a zip file (ships with .ipsw extension) that contains boot loaders, kernel, system software, shared libraries & built in applications.

When an iPhone boots up, it walks through a chain of trust, which is a series of RSA signature checks among the software components in a specific order as shown below:




The BootRom is Read-only memory (ROM) and it is the first stage of booting an iOS device. BootRom contains all the root certificates to signature check the next stage.

iPhone operates in 3 modes – Normal Mode, Recovery Mode, DFU mode

In Normal mode, BootRom start off some initialization stuff and loads the low level boot loader (LLB) by verifying its signature. LLB signature checks and loads the stage 2 boot loader (iBoot). iBoot signature checks the kernel and device tree, while the kernel signature checks all the user applications.

In DFU mode, iPhone follows the boot sequence with a series of signature checks as shown below. BootRom signature checks the second level boot loaders (iBSS, iBEC). Boot loader signature checks the kernel, and the kernel signature checks the Ramdisk.




During iOS update, the Ramdisk gets loaded into RAM and it loads all the other OS components.

In Forensics, we will create a custom Ramdisk with our complete forensic tool kit and load it into the iPhone’s volatile memory.

Signature checks implemented at various stages in the boot sequence do not allow us to load our custom Ramdisk. To load our custom Ramdisk, we have to bypass all these signature checks. In the chain of trust boot sequence, if we compromise one link, we can fully control all the links that follow. The hacker community has found several vulnerabilities in BootRom. By using these, we can flash our own boot loader and patch all other signature checks in all the subsequent stages. Apart from signature checks, every stage is also encrypted. These encryption keys can be grabbed from JailBreaking tools.“

Jailbreak iPhone XS, iPhone XR on iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 Using Chimera Jailbreak [How to]


Image/Photo

Posted by Rajesh Pandey on Apr 30, 2019

The Electra team surprised everyone today by releasing Chimera, a new iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak for A7-A12 devices including the iPhone XS and iPhone XR. Chimera has been built from the ground up and comes with Sileo as its default package manager.

the hardware hack: How to unlock iCloud locked Apple iPad 2, 3, 4, iPad Air and Air 2, iPad mini 1, 2, 3, 4, iPad 12.9 and 9.7 – WARNING!

This method works ONLY on iPads with 3G/4G/LTE and removes cellular from your iPad.

it will become wifi-only! (no 3G/4G/LTE no more!)


„This method will help you bypass iCloud on locked iPads.

This manual will help you with iCloud bypass on your iPad Cellular.
  • After bypass iCloud you will have iPad Wi-Fi Only.
  • Sim-slot (GSM, Mobile, SimCard) will not work.
  • GPS and Bluetooth will work.
At this moment it works with Apple iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Pro 12.9, iPad Pro 9.7 which is locked by service iCloud. Include locked through “Lost and erased” mode.
  • On the iPad 2 3G Model A1396 (GSM) remove the resistor r1205. On the Model iPad 2 3G A1397 (CDMA) move resistor r1205 to position r1204.
  • iPad 2 3G will enter DFU mode.
  • Connect the iPad 2 3G to your PC or Mac.
  • After that you need to restore the iPad 2 3G through iTunes with firmware of Wi-Fi ONLY model and activate using the official method.
  • Turn off the automatic firmware update: Settings \ iTunes Store, App Store \ Automatic download \ Updates.
You can support this project through donations. „PayPal block my account with all money because I’m from Ukraine. “

After this you will can install any apps on your iCloud free iPad, make jailbreak, assign your own Apple ID account and do any other things.

Apple devices (for example iPads) have some part on logic board which called Board_id. Board_id is responsible for how device identifies itself. For iPad there are several possible configurations: Apple TV, Apple iPhone, Apple iPad Cellular, Apple iPad WiFi only.

When Apple’s iCloud servers bloсked iPads they do this in 2 ways:
  • iPad WiFi only will be blocked by it serial number.
  • iPad Cellular will be blocked by it serial number and IMEI.
To bypass iCloud on iPads Cellular you need disable it modem chip and change Board_id.

If you just only disable modem you will get error and not working device. Sometimes this happens when modem or cable modem is broken even on iPads which isn’t blocked in iCloud. My method can revive such devices.

When you disabled modem chip and changed Board_id device will stop work properly. Something inside will say: “Hey man, something wrong! My hardware is like for WiFi only model, but you use firmware for Cellular model. I go in DFU-mode and you should go in iTunes and restore me”.

When you connect your iPad to BigBrother OS will install driver for it.

At finish you will have iCloud unlocked iPad WiFi only. Now It can be registered on your own Apple ID through new clean serial number. Voila!

If you have some problem with recovering check USB cable and restore iPad manualy from file with firmware. You can download firmware from ipsw.me. Remember that now you have iPad WiFi only hardware and you should download WiFi only firmware. For example, if you have iCloud locked iPad Air Cellular A1475 you should download firmware for iPad Air WiFi only A1474.

And Yes. At any moment you can covert your iCloud freу iPad WiFi only with hardware method back to iPad Cellular. But iCloud blocking will back too.

Be careful and good luck!“

redsn0w is ooooold:


in this video DiplInf Sebastian Scheiber shows how to jailbreak an locked (!) iPad and recover the data.

Method used:problem: this probably only works with on older versions of the iPad / iPhone supported by Redsn0w and iOS 5.1 is rather old, most devices will have a newer version of iOS installed by now.

how to get into DFU (recovery) mode:

  • hold power button pressed for 3 seconds
  • now keep power button pressed while also holding home button pressed
  • after a few seconds screen goes dark, now RELEASE POWER BUTTON but still keep home button pressed
… screen should stay dark and PC you connect do should detect an iPad in DFU mode.

Stuck in DFU mode – How to Exit DFU Mode:


Press Home and Power/ Sleep buttons at the same time for 10s > Release the Home and Power/ Sleep buttons together.

Evasi0n (Evasi0n7) Jailbreak Tool:

for iOS 6.x – iOS 7.0.x


… this can not be used to unlock an iPad. Your iPad/iPhone will have to be unlocked (PIN) before jailbreaking.

http://www.ijailbreak.com/evasi0n/

evasi0n is an unconventional utility able to perform jailbreak operations on devices running iOS 6 and 7.

A consequence of the procedure is the removal of several limitations imposed by Apple, allowing users to install software that is not approved by the company and switch phone carriers seamlessly.

evasi0n became a success just days after its first release.

Supposedly, a few million copies have been downloaded in a very short period, which is not necessarily an indication of its efficiency, but sure says a lot. Statistics aside, the general opinion (as stated by most users on the Internet) is that evasi0n is a trustworthy jailbreak application, one that has to offer everything and asks for nothing in return.

evasi0n is special because it can perform an untethered jailbreak operation, which translates into the fact that the iOS device will be able to reboot without requiring a connection with an external device.

The principle it relies on involves a number of complicated steps, most of which are related to exploiting several vulnerabilities that were overlooked by Apple. However, the process is completed silently, without user intervention.

This is the main reason why evasi0n is considered one of the most easy-to-use and accessible applications of its type. It’s not pretentious as far as OS requirements are concerned, nor does it require advanced configurations.

In order for the jailbreak operation to be successful, you need to equip your system with iTunes and connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod to the computer via a USB cable.

It is also recommended that you backup the device in case something goes wrong.

Once you’ve completed these steps, you can proceed with the jailbreak operation, which, if free of errors, shouldn’t take more than five minutes. However, if the process fails, simply reboot the device and relaunch evasi0n.

On an ending note, this is a well-built jailbreak software, easy to use and user-friendly. Nevertheless, a backup operation is vital in case anything goes wrong.

have an older ipad 3 to wich the PIN was lost (no it is not stolen, it’s from a relative who forgot it and also can not remember his itunes password (alzheimer is very comon these days)). (Model: A1430 iPad 3, Early 2012, +Wi-Fi + Cellular, 30-pin connecto) but latest redsn0w (redsn0w_win_0.9.15b2.zip) says „iPad 3 is not supported“ (probably it has a newer iOS installed than 5.1.1)

this site helps you find and download newer and older firmwares for your device: (GOOD JOB! 🙂

https://ipsw.me/device-finder

https://ipsw.me/iPad3,3

http://www.getios.com/ here you also can get a lot of firmware versions for your iDevice.

also interesting: https://nerdpol.ch/tags/jailbreak

theory:

  • pull an (encrypted) backup from the device
    • not possible via itunes with PIN locked ipad
    • most approaches use some exploit to load their own ramdisk and get access to the device
  • via brute force, find the decryption PIN
  • extract the data
  • reset the device
…. not so easy.

„Imagine a computer which is protected with an OS level password – we can still access the hard disk data by booting a live CD, or by removing the hard disk and connecting it to another machine. When we compare computers to the iPhone, it is an embedded device. So it is not easy to take out the chips (hard disk) and dump data into it. To perform iPhone forensics, we use the Live CD approach. As the iPhone has only one serial port, we are going to load custom OS over the USB to access the hard disk of the device. The problem here is: the iPhone only loads firmware designed by Apple.

In order to create and load the forensic toolkit, first we need to understand iPhone functions at the operating system level. iOS (previously known as iPhone OS) is the operating system that runs on all Apple devices like iPhone, iPod, Apple TV and iPad. iOS is a zip file (ships with .ipsw extension) that contains boot loaders, kernel, system software, shared libraries & built in applications.

When an iPhone boots up, it walks through a chain of trust, which is a series of RSA signature checks among the software components in a specific order as shown below:




The BootRom is Read-only memory (ROM) and it is the first stage of booting an iOS device. BootRom contains all the root certificates to signature check the next stage.

iPhone operates in 3 modes – Normal Mode, Recovery Mode, DFU mode

In Normal mode, BootRom start off some initialization stuff and loads the low level boot loader (LLB) by verifying its signature. LLB signature checks and loads the stage 2 boot loader (iBoot). iBoot signature checks the kernel and device tree, while the kernel signature checks all the user applications.

In DFU mode, iPhone follows the boot sequence with a series of signature checks as shown below. BootRom signature checks the second level boot loaders (iBSS, iBEC). Boot loader signature checks the kernel, and the kernel signature checks the Ramdisk.




During iOS update, the Ramdisk gets loaded into RAM and it loads all the other OS components.

In Forensics, we will create a custom Ramdisk with our complete forensic tool kit and load it into the iPhone’s volatile memory.

Signature checks implemented at various stages in the boot sequence do not allow us to load our custom Ramdisk. To load our custom Ramdisk, we have to bypass all these signature checks. In the chain of trust boot sequence, if we compromise one link, we can fully control all the links that follow. The hacker community has found several vulnerabilities in BootRom. By using these, we can flash our own boot loader and patch all other signature checks in all the subsequent stages. Apart from signature checks, every stage is also encrypted. These encryption keys can be grabbed from JailBreaking tools.“

Jailbreak iPhone XS, iPhone XR on iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 Using Chimera Jailbreak [How to]


Image/Photo

Posted by Rajesh Pandey on Apr 30, 2019

The Electra team surprised everyone today by releasing Chimera, a new iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak for A7-A12 devices including the iPhone XS and iPhone XR. Chimera has been built from the ground up and comes with Sileo as its default package manager.

the hardware hack: How to unlock iCloud locked Apple iPad 2, 3, 4, iPad Air and Air 2, iPad mini 1, 2, 3, 4, iPad 12.9 and 9.7 – WARNING!

This method works ONLY on iPads with 3G/4G/LTE and removes cellular from your iPad.

it will become wifi-only! (no 3G/4G/LTE no more!)


„This method will help you bypass iCloud on locked iPads.

This manual will help you with iCloud bypass on your iPad Cellular.
  • After bypass iCloud you will have iPad Wi-Fi Only.
  • Sim-slot (GSM, Mobile, SimCard) will not work.
  • GPS and Bluetooth will work.
At this moment it works with Apple iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Pro 12.9, iPad Pro 9.7 which is locked by service iCloud. Include locked through “Lost and erased” mode.
  • On the iPad 2 3G Model A1396 (GSM) remove the resistor r1205. On the Model iPad 2 3G A1397 (CDMA) move resistor r1205 to position r1204.
  • iPad 2 3G will enter DFU mode.
  • Connect the iPad 2 3G to your PC or Mac.
  • After that you need to restore the iPad 2 3G through iTunes with firmware of Wi-Fi ONLY model and activate using the official method.
  • Turn off the automatic firmware update: Settings \ iTunes Store, App Store \ Automatic download \ Updates.
You can support this project through donations. „PayPal block my account with all money because I’m from Ukraine. “

After this you will can install any apps on your iCloud free iPad, make jailbreak, assign your own Apple ID account and do any other things.

Apple devices (for example iPads) have some part on logic board which called Board_id. Board_id is responsible for how device identifies itself. For iPad there are several possible configurations: Apple TV, Apple iPhone, Apple iPad Cellular, Apple iPad WiFi only.

When Apple’s iCloud servers bloсked iPads they do this in 2 ways:
  • iPad WiFi only will be blocked by it serial number.
  • iPad Cellular will be blocked by it serial number and IMEI.
To bypass iCloud on iPads Cellular you need disable it modem chip and change Board_id.

If you just only disable modem you will get error and not working device. Sometimes this happens when modem or cable modem is broken even on iPads which isn’t blocked in iCloud. My method can revive such devices.

When you disabled modem chip and changed Board_id device will stop work properly. Something inside will say: “Hey man, something wrong! My hardware is like for WiFi only model, but you use firmware for Cellular model. I go in DFU-mode and you should go in iTunes and restore me”.

When you connect your iPad to BigBrother OS will install driver for it.

At finish you will have iCloud unlocked iPad WiFi only. Now It can be registered on your own Apple ID through new clean serial number. Voila!

If you have some problem with recovering check USB cable and restore iPad manualy from file with firmware. You can download firmware from ipsw.me. Remember that now you have iPad WiFi only hardware and you should download WiFi only firmware. For example, if you have iCloud locked iPad Air Cellular A1475 you should download firmware for iPad Air WiFi only A1474.

And Yes. At any moment you can covert your iCloud freу iPad WiFi only with hardware method back to iPad Cellular. But iCloud blocking will back too.

Be careful and good luck!“

Here you can read manual to bypass iCloud on model of your iPad:If you are looking for a way to unlock the iCloud on iPad Wi-Fi Only, iPhone or iPod, then read this article: How to bypass iCloud on iPad WiFi, iPad Cellular, iPhone and iPod

redsn0w is ooooold:


in this video DiplInf Sebastian Scheiber shows how to jailbreak an locked (!) iPad and recover the data.

Method used:problem: this probably only works with on older versions of the iPad / iPhone supported by Redsn0w and iOS 5.1 is rather old, most devices will have a newer version of iOS installed by now.

how to get into DFU (recovery) mode:

  • hold power button pressed for 3 seconds
  • now keep power button pressed while also holding home button pressed
  • after a few seconds screen goes dark, now RELEASE POWER BUTTON but still keep home button pressed
… screen should stay dark and PC you connect do should detect an iPad in DFU mode.

Stuck in DFU mode – How to Exit DFU Mode:


Press Home and Power/ Sleep buttons at the same time for 10s > Release the Home and Power/ Sleep buttons together.

Evasi0n (Evasi0n7) Jailbreak Tool:

for iOS 6.x – iOS 7.0.x


… this can not be used to unlock an iPad. Your iPad/iPhone will have to be unlocked (PIN) before jailbreaking.

http://www.ijailbreak.com/evasi0n/

evasi0n is an unconventional utility able to perform jailbreak operations on devices running iOS 6 and 7.

A consequence of the procedure is the removal of several limitations imposed by Apple, allowing users to install software that is not approved by the company and switch phone carriers seamlessly.

evasi0n became a success just days after its first release.

Supposedly, a few million copies have been downloaded in a very short period, which is not necessarily an indication of its efficiency, but sure says a lot. Statistics aside, the general opinion (as stated by most users on the Internet) is that evasi0n is a trustworthy jailbreak application, one that has to offer everything and asks for nothing in return.

evasi0n is special because it can perform an untethered jailbreak operation, which translates into the fact that the iOS device will be able to reboot without requiring a connection with an external device.

The principle it relies on involves a number of complicated steps, most of which are related to exploiting several vulnerabilities that were overlooked by Apple. However, the process is completed silently, without user intervention.

This is the main reason why evasi0n is considered one of the most easy-to-use and accessible applications of its type. It’s not pretentious as far as OS requirements are concerned, nor does it require advanced configurations.

In order for the jailbreak operation to be successful, you need to equip your system with iTunes and connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod to the computer via a USB cable.

It is also recommended that you backup the device in case something goes wrong.

Once you’ve completed these steps, you can proceed with the jailbreak operation, which, if free of errors, shouldn’t take more than five minutes. However, if the process fails, simply reboot the device and relaunch evasi0n.

On an ending note, this is a well-built jailbreak software, easy to use and user-friendly. Nevertheless, a backup operation is vital in case anything goes wrong.

What Is Open Source Software, and Why Does It Matter?


Geeks often describe programs as being “open source” or “free software.” If you’re wondering exactly what these terms mean and why they matter, read on. (No, “free software” doesn’t always just mean that you can download it for free.)

Whether a program is open-source or not doesn’t just matter to developers, it ultimately matters for users, too. Open-source software licenses give users freedoms they would not otherwise have.

If a program is open-source, its source code is freely available to its users. Its users – and anyone else – have the ability to take this source code, modify it, and distribute their own versions of the program. The users also have the ability to distribute as many copies of the original program as they want. Anyone can use the program for any purpose; there are no licensing fees or other restrictions on the software.

Open source applications are generally freely available – although there’s nothing stopping the developer from charging for copies of the software if they allow redistribution of the application and its source code afterwards.

However, that’s not what “free software” refers to. The “free” in free software means “free as in freedom,” not “free as in beer.” The free software camp, led by Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation, focuses on the ethics and morals of using software that can be controlled and modified by the user. In other words, the free software camp focuses on user freedoms.

Finally I got to upgrade the Gnu/Linux distro on my computer. Because there was some problems with my I initially reverted to the old version back when the new one was released. But I really do not fancy using a desktop that do not have access to security updates. So after I saw that the problems seemed to be solved with my daughters Wacom I tried again yesterday.

As usual I had to pick a fight with some of the things that didn't work as perfect as I wanted them to. #Kwallet again, but at least this time I got an idea about what was wrong and have fixed it. I also have a working #Wacom tablet and I am on the track of the last missing bits. A good feeling and I have not been using too much time... plus every time I get a bit wiser.

So why use Linux when you are a graphic artist? When I talk to other people working with with computer graphic they are almost frightened by the thought of a person who do not pay his Adobe-tax. I have been using Gnu/Linux since #1999, but it took me some years to move all my activities to the platform. From my work with print making and painting I knew that it was not the machines that made art, so I moved as soon as I could. And when the finance-crisis destroyed the art-market I moved from handmade art to digital without much worry.

One of the people I have been inspired by is the French comic artist and illustrator, David #Revoy. Here he explains his way from the expensive commercial software to open source software:



I use the #Mageia Linux distribution - I know that it would be easier to just go for Mint or Ubuntu, but I am crazily loyal. I always used the #KDE windows manager, and in that I am also crazily loyal, so now I am struggling with #Plasma. Since I installed #Mandrake Linux for the first time 20 years ago on my wife's newly bought laptop, I have been reading through 1000 flame wars concerning different aspects of this free community, but personally I really just feel cheered up by all the creativity leading to so many different WMs, package managers, text editors, IMs and video-players.
