I know, this new little blog is going to attempt to agree with a guy pointing out the problems with Linux on the desk top? Confession time, I am not an expert in Open Source by any stretch of the imagination. I am trying to learn all I can about this movement because I think the concepts are fantastic and my husband so passionate about the topic. That said, it seems that there are plenty of hurdles in the way of making this movement as big as it could be. These hurdles are outlined in this great article. Sadly at the end, the author, Matt Hartley predicts he will be flamed. Maybe if more that four people read my blog I would be too for agree with him and having such limited knowledge. But as Dr. Phil would say, “You can not change what you don’t acknowledge.”

This blog is my attempt at educating me and maybe a few others about open source in a real and less technical manner. Hopefully, with the help of the community, I can really do this.


Check out the Open Animals Site! Let us know what you think of the site. It really is filling out nicely. Next on the agenda is to add pictures. We have some cute ideas for the that. Check back for more!

dscf6965.jpgTalking with Open Penguin, he is so excited about the launch of the store that he climbed a tree in my back yard! I know, penguins don’t climb trees but, that should just show how excited he is. Truth be told Open Penguin is no ordinary penguin. Open Penguin is cute, fuzzy, and adventurous! So come back to see Open Penguin doing all kinds of fun things. HaveĀ  any ideas for penguin to try? Any adventures that you want to see him go on? Let us know by commenting here! If you want to take Open Penguin on your own adventures (and he would surely love that, he is easily entertained) then get one of him for yourself and send us photos and we would love to post them here!

I think that we now have a system and this is more than likely going to be the official Open Animals Blog!

Woohoo! Look for the URL to change. The point of this blog is so attract readers to learn a little bit about Open Source and attract people to our Open Animals store. So go there and see our beautiful plush Open Penguin and keep coming back here to see what we have planned for the future!
