Long Term Support

Linux and open-source software blog.

Long Term Support is a blog focused on Linux and other open-source projects. I would like to encourage anyone reading this that is capable of flashing an ISO to a flash drive to do just that, and also check out Ventoy if you aren't already familiar with it. If you, a friend, or a family member has an aging, unused, unwanted (BSoD'd) PC then it's time to grab a 4+GB flash drive and get that thing fixed up for free. It's time we bridge the digital divide.

It's my goal to bring Linux and open-source software awareness to those without the means to afford or run modern software. It's also important to be mindful of all of the data that big tech companies are constantly stealing from us to profit from. Open-source software offers a level of transparency that is unheard of in the corporate propriatary software world. All of the source code is available for others to view, change, and use as you see fit. It's a collective manner of software development.

I've been interested in Linux since I got my start in IT, interning while I was still in high school (2006). My school had Windows, Mac, and Linux computers in the classrooms and library. Most of my life I've not had a ton of disposable income so open-source software has definitely helped me stay active and engaged with learning, exploring, and experimenting with computer technology. With open-source software money is much less of a barrier to entry for these vital tools of the modern age. There is no need to throw away perfectly good computers just because they are old and Windows is slow and outdated. With Linux you can give these devices a new lease on life.
