    For me it's about many things:
    * Linux is free - as in freedom of speech
    * Sharing encourages creativity
    * It's less comercialised and more accountable to a community rather
    than a board of directors
    * I like Richard Stallman's impressively large beard
    * The community tolerates silly people like me
    * You can code if you want to: in fact the amount of choice is staggering
    * It's exciting and cutting edge, if you like that sort of thing
    * I have nothing better to do, and TV isn't my first choice

    Any reason is good enough
