The Zen of Computers
- No computer works the way you want it to. This is a problem not with the computer, but with you.
- Pick a computer (or software), any computer (or software), and stay with it. When it stops working, abandon it, pick something else, and stay with that.
- It is okay to be a fanboy or an ideologue. But it is not okay to let fanboyism or ideology make your life, or the life of others, miserable.
- If you cannot decide between using one tool or another, you probably need to use both of them.
- Occasionally, you will find peace with your computing machine. But this peace shall not last.
- All exciting software will always seem to exist on the some other OS/Platform/Hardware that you're not using. Know this to be an illusion.
