No more "Hacky GNU Year"

I usually kick off every year with the aforementioned greeting, but 2015 will stand as the year I really got sick of what the GNU/Linux ecosystem has become... in pretty much the same way I have been sick of what the Windows ecosystem has become. The mainstream Linux distributions have all become painful to me in ways that I couldn't have imagined just a few years ago. It's been a long, arduous slog. You can ask any of my nerd friends. I've gotten pretty salty over the state of Linux in the past year. And don't get me started on the nightmares of El Capitan and Windows 10, also making 2015 especially brutal.

This evening, though, Linux is weighing especially heavy on my mind.  I'm sure the recent passing of Ian Murdock has something to do with it as well. We really did lose one of the heroes this week.

I will still use Linux and Windows for the tasks that they excel in. I will continue to experiment with and master their secrets in order to figure out how they work -- just as I do with other operating systems.

My new year's resolution is to get more and more of my personal stuff migrated to some kind of BSD.

Best wishes to all of you in 2016 from Ax0n.
