Rob Knop's Gratuitous Computer Nerd Page


I'm not just a computer nerd, I'm an open source / free software wacko... mostly. Wherever possible, I like to use free software, especially for stuff I use. For some things such as games, I have no objection to proprietary software, any more than I have an objection to watching a movie without necessarily seeing all of the stuff that went into making the movie. But if I depend on it, I've been bitten in the past by annoying licence restrictions and cumbersome licence managers. It's both more likely to work, and more future-proof, if it's open source.
