Why Linux?

I was asked earlier today “Why do you do Linux?” by some well-meaning folks. I thought for a minute and answered “Because I can.” After I further explained the depths of that, that I didn’t need permission from anyone or any organizations and more critically, that I was capable as well as willing, they asked me how they could learn more.

I didn’t have to say “Those who can’t always have Windows and iOS.” for which I was thankful. Because there folks weren’t schmucks.

I am not usually this wise, even if by accident.
