I am not usually the kind of person who likes to blow his own trumpet but, in the complete absence of a brass musician of any kind producing articles for this blog, I feel compelled to break the mould on this occasion, by bringing your attention to a small achievement on my part that I only discovered this week.
As most of you are aware by now, I am a lover of all things to do with free and open source using, as I do, Linux distributions as the operating systems of choice for all my PCs, and Free Open Source Software wherever possible, so it is no big surprise that I recently downloaded the most recent version of Linux Mint (Code named ‘Nadia’) to use on one of my machines at work.
I was more than a little bit surprised, however, and more than a little bit pleased, to find that one of my own photographs had been packaged at a standard Linux Mint Wallpaper, and was being distributed along with the operating system. I read the release notes and saw that I also got a mention in the credits for the artwork.
I would therefore like to thank Clem Lefebvre and his team that bring this highly polished and professional distribution together every 6 months and would urge all readers of this blog to consider using this distribution by visiting the Linux Mint Website and downloading a copy of ‘Nadia’.
If you don’t want to go that far, you might want to download my photograph and use it as a wallpaper on your own system? Please do not use it on a Windows system – that is one way to really upset me!!
