Wisdom of Computing

To be or not to be, that is the question.

There is no such thing as the best. It all depends on context.

Technologies have biases. Beware of lock-in and high cost of switching.

Avoid technology wars (commercial vs open source).

IT is not an end in itself. IT is just a means to an end.

Personal life is more important than IT life.

Support open standards (OS).

Support open source software (OSS).

OS + OSS = BETTER THAN commercial software

But BETTER is relative (that’s just me).

What you know that works may be better ONLY for you.

But IT is a dynamic landscape.

What you know that works may be outdated.

So look out and go seek the horizon,

What you see is what you get:

IT is a numbers game (network effects).

It’s not the operating system, it’s the ecosystem.
