The Five Years of the Linux Desktop

 I've been using Linux exclusively - desktop, laptop, and server - for about five years now. It's been a really great experience, and it's been fun to see the world move in the same direction. Microsoft bought github, introduced WSL, and "loves Linux" now, apparently. Well, better than the "Linux is a cancer" MS view of old. We now teach R on a web server rather than SPSS on Windows, and test using OpenSesame on JATOS, rather than E-prime on Windows. I made some new friends at the local LUG and Tech Jam. It's been quite a ride. Looking forward to the next five years.
