Integrated Systems · In Which Mac?, I wrote “Not quite ready to unSwitch for day-to-day work yet; it seems the latest Linuxes still have issues with outboard displays and power management [now 37 people are going to write me to tell me how you can make that work, each providing their own multi-step recipe]”. Hubert Figuière , very sensibly, commented “Actually there is no need for a multi-step Linux-that-work-on-laptop how to. Just purchase a model that is known to be well supported.” ...
Defining Standards · In Pro Choice, Sam Ruby says: I prefer simpler definitions.  A standard is one that has multiple, inter-operable, independent implementations.  An open standard, at least in the software world, is one where at least one of those implementations is open source. You can sign me up for that, too.
